    3rd gen pickup ifs suspension performance

    Love it! As usual, KISS. Remind me what size tires you're wearing again? Are you worried about breaking axles at all? I know that's typically a concern for those that wheel really hard with a front locker in Toyota IFS.

    '94 Toyota Pickup build

    Man that's a ripping deal. Count the teeth on the ring and pinion gears for a sure way to know it's actually 4.88. I wasn't even aware that there was any data stamped on the gears themselves- and to my knowledge there was never any stock 4.60 toyota gears. That diff you have could very well...

    '94 Toyota Pickup build

    Wow what are the chances that the window would be an exact fit in the wildernest? That seems like a real stroke of luck. I still can't get over the fact that front diff was stolen. Some methhead is really confused right now about what to do with that....

    Wildernest sleeping pad options?

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, our memory foam topper at home is great. Looks like the 'nest is sticking around at least for this next trip...I'll see if I still can part with it after we get back!

    Are you saying you're going to get a new rack from Toyota? I would just replace that inner tie rod if I were you, inexpensive and pretty easy. Where did you take those pictures? That looks great!

    Wildernest sleeping pad options?

    What are you guys using for pads in your Wildernest? It's time to upgrade our aging thermarests and our Paco pads we use on the river are just too big for the 'nest. Our is the compact truck model, measuring roughly 42" width in the sleeping area. I'm wondering if I shouldn't come up with...

    Here of some photos of my redneck cruise control setup. It's simply some shifter cable and housing running to a fresh hole I drilled in the extra throttle body lever. I attached a knarp for a bmx 990 U brake to stop the cable at the TB. The actual thumb shifter mounted on the truck shifter...

    That is really frickin cool. What's left to complete it at this point? Digging the Chebby too, those trucks are often looked past by us snobby Toyota folk but having worked on a bunch of them- they're stout. Typical front end IFS issues with big tires and lifts but that pretty much goes for...

    I’ll get you guys a couple pictures tomorrow. I just ran a cable housing right next to the throttle cable and hooked it up to the throttle body- it took some really minor ‘fabrication’ to connect the cable properly but was very simple. The old shimano thumb shifters have a switch for either...

    Time to wake this thread up for spring. My OG dirtbagging rig is coming out of hibernation for some maintenance for a trip to Cabo in a couple weeks. It was time a for a front end refresh after 3 or 4 years of genuine neglect and tens of thousands of miles of river shuttles, mountain bike road...

    Lower ball joint issue on pre-Tacoma trucks?

    No failure issues as far as I can tell. With a mild lift and 34s I do go through a whole front end every 2-3 years depending on how much I beat on it. It is crucially important to not use junk components, especially for the BJ's. My last set developed play in the lowers after very few miles...
