Getting away from the crowded campsites this weekend... came back to this stream and hooked a few brookies on the royal wulff.

What are your plans for the rear? Spring under axle? Bumps? The suspense is killing me! :coffeedrink:
Well for a temp thing i am going to put a t100 axle back there then put 12'' or 14'' ADS shock outside the frame on custom hoop mounts that will barely go into the bed so i'll still have my bed.

I put on Wheelers Super bumps just before this trip and man am i glad i did. Super nice. But hydros will replace those.


Then....save save save save save

for a 4 link rear, internal cage, engine cage and motor swap to a 2jz.

Be expensive...but should be fun :p

Off topic but have you ever tried the stimulator version of the royal wulf? One of my go to flies for brookies here. I tie 12-16 inches of 5x tippet off the back of the fly and add a nymph...deadly any time of year or day.

T100 axle swap would be super easy considering you have an 8.4" in the rear already! Just plug and play the 3rd.

2jz huh?? That would be insanely awesome! But an insane amount of work. The truck would be sitting for a while I'd imagine. Ever thought about boosting the 5VZFE with a turbo? A properly sized turbo and necessary fuel upgrades would net you some impressive power numbers. Even with the factory ECU and a piggyback. Or run standalone.
Lots of turbo builds out there, we've seen em all. I like this one:

Got 1.75" tube hoops put in with some Bilstein 5150 8.5" travel shocks. Also did Land Cruiser 100 series sway links (because of eye on bottom) so I can run disconnect pins.





I'm slowly yet surely beefing up the IFS. Upper tube arm with uniball and lower uniball swap, FJ80 outer tie rods and heim inners, and Old Man Emu torsions is next.

I run a dropper pretty often, usually with a caddis or royal wulff and a nymph in the back. Length of tippet depends on shallow and fast the water I'm casting to is- I've had success with only 6" of tippet in certain situations
