Do you have a project log for the swap?

It would be AWESOME to have your log in the "Project" are of the site. Could you upload some pics if/when you can. Looks like some pretty good work.

I have more pics but I'm having a hard time remembering were I saved them. Oh well this is the latest pic. Sorry it is not the clearest. It had jeep coils when the pic was taken. But after we put the weight on the coils they went down ALL the way to the frame. It is also too high. So I'm bring it down about 4 inches. Btw it still has the 3" body lift.

Is the axle really far to the left or is it just the angle of the picture?

It was for some reason when I got back to the shop it was like that. But we fixed it. It wasn't really that off center the angle makes it look worst.

This is the final ride height. I do plan on getting some shorter springs. It sits too high for my taste.

Great idea! Always wanted to see one done with a Trail Gear axle after they starting making the Tacoma axles.

What axle shafts? Dirty 30s?

Yup. Chromoly dirty 30's. They were a really tight fit in the knuckle ball. But they should be perfect for wheeling. But its still and open diff up front.

rock assualt

I like how she sits as of now. Not too tall. But any one have ideas for the rear. Right now I have the 3 inch block and the bl. I want it to flex but I don't want a stiff ride. Any thought?

Are you still using the stock shackles? If so you can use chevy shackles in there to raise it up some or get some lift springs, deavers.

Those arms look great. Chevys would work too, didn't think about those.
