Basically this is the same thing as that expo and that FJ. Only difference is this arm with the shocks are going to the rear where the FJ's are going forward, same function though. You'll see gonig forward on this below the 4 link bars and a swaybar above it and then the mezzanine arms going to the rear.

You need to take a couple shots of patron before you read them! I thought that was a given?

It's gonna be a while cause I need to finish this race truck and do some upgrades and prep to my toyota first but I'm probably going to be doing something a bit off the wall on the rear of my expo when the time comes to address it. Just so that I can get some better shocks fit under the rear without coming thru the floor.

Need some help. I saw this truck today, and I got thinking. Say there was a line of d-bags and hipsters, with an average height of 5 foot 9 inches, and say this line extended out for an indefinite distance beyond a 12 foot high 30 degree ramp, and say I was driving this truck up the ramp at 73 MPH with a 12 MPH tail wind ... how many extra d-bags and hipsters would I clear before smashing the rest as a result of that wing?

You'd clear none of them because you would lock the brakes on the ramp, then floor it once back on pavement!!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Makes more sense now. I didn't really understand what was going on there because from the first picture of the rear suspension you posted the mezzanine arm looks like a control arm and you can't see the regular 4 link control arms. I thought it was like a cantilever arm but that didn't make sense with the way the shocks and springs are mounted. I would really like to see something like that in person.

On a side note, I have nothing going on tomorrow. You going to be working?

He's got it right. My last one that was similarly built to this one popped sitting at a stop light. The nickname is really fitting. Then again when you're running 35's on a transmission designed for a minivan what do you expect? LOL, I'll be better prepared for the pop this time around!

Yep, I'll be out there most the day. No clue what time, kinda whenever I get up and get motivated to go suffer! LOL My goal tomorrow is 8 tubes. If I can do that, it leaves gussets for Sunday and then the roof can get cut off next for welding. I'll PM you my number, just shoot me a text or something if you decide you want to cruise by. Heck, that might be the motivating factor to get my butt out there even! HAHAHA

And yeah, they make a lot more sense when you see them in person. I don't know where or who has it but if one of the old baldwin trophy trucks ever resurfaces it's got the most exotic crazy over the top mezzanine rear setup I've ever seen. Pictures online don't do it justice. It seriously looks like a space ship from some sci-fi movie kinda crap.

Only thing better would be if this dude was scratching his head!!! LOL




I should really confuse you and find pictures of the old macpherson chevy TT that was nicknamed big mac, I've seen it in person and still can't totally figure it out. Put it this way, instead of torsions, or springs, or leafs to support it, it's held up by nylon looking straps that are held in tension. Or at least that's sure what it looks like!

The rock racers and crawlers have done some crazy stuff. I remember back in highschool seeing avalanche engineering in like the early 90's out of colorado doing strange mind blowing suspension ideas but it seems like the desert racer guys think even more outta the box sometimes. They don't always work though, that's for sure! LOL

These aren't the ones I'm looking for but talk about space ship looking!!!

Went to take a look at this thing this morning, 1980 J20, http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/cto/3138825969.html but it turned out to be a little more work to be done than I'd hoped

I'm sure somebody with the time, space, and know-how will pick it up.

What shape is it in physically, and what does it need done to it?

Where in town is it?

It's near Ann & Decatur. Owner's a super nice dude, keeps it in the garage except when he's workin in there, does some kickass metal fab work.

It was sitting for about 6 years. runs really rough, still has the old oil in it so no way to really tell, rocker/lifter noise. When he finally got it running a couple weeks ago, the rear driveline fell out, only need new ujoints there.

Body is fairly straight except for medium size bash on a rocker and rust lines from back wheels to front of bed. Interior shot, but all the gauges are there and work.

I was hoping it could be ran and taken for a test drive, but with no rear driveline and the motor running the way it is, umm no. Probably needs motor and carb rebuild. He's on 702warmachines so someone here probably knows him.
