Those hangers look almost like the sky mfg that used. Sky's hanger kit is pretty long also. But maybe a lil less. The build looks good so for. Start cutting the ifs out and post up pics.

Hangers look nice... I think there's stuff in the way if you plan on using that pipe to align them to each other while putting them on the frame.

Those spring hangers look fantastic if you're just doing them in your garage! They weren't machined, were they?

The wheels are badass too

Thanks, all I have is a grinder build everything with it. I did brorrow a buddies chop saw so I could get the cuts straight on the tube going through the shackle mount.

I am tired

So it begins. Started friday at 4 pm and took a 3 hour break at 4am and then worked until 1 am the sunday morning when I couldn't lift my arms anymore.
ifs chopped off


Oil pan installed. I haven't been so pissed off in a long time. Both my kids were crying in the house cause I was cussing so loud in the garage and were scared. If I did it over I would have dry set the pan first(like you probably always should) so I could see that the pan doesn't go straight in. The front goes up and in and then slides forward so the back can clear the bell housing. I got that fipg all over and had to wipe it off and do it over, I sure hope it doesn't leak.


Right now I am currently welding up the frame plates. This is the drivers side. The Ballastic fab plates don't go all the way back so I cut out a plate to finish it off, mostly so I didn't have to get a comment from Phil that my plating was lacking, .


Steering box mount is done. I sleeved the holes with some 3/4" O.D. 1/2" I.D. tube and welded it all and ground the surface flat with a big grinding wheel.


Passenger side


Finally dug out the big guy. This thing can't wait to get under the truck. Have to finish welding the plates and then put on the springs and shackle mounts. Should be able to get it on today.

..... very nice build sir!

I wouldnt be too worried about the oil pan, as long as you got a good layer of rtv on there, its probably going to be fine.

The trick to the oil pan is to remove those 3-4 bolts that hold the inspection cover to the bellhousing. Then it will easily clear.

Probably a good idea to use RTV rather than a gasket. I used a gasket on mine the first time and it leaked...bad. Had to drain the oil, drop the pan, and put RTV on it.

Build looks good. I am looking forward to more pics.

Do you have the Toyota pinion flange on that 60??

...side note... while you have the front exposed (no bumpers)... take the time to spay it flat black.. I'll be pulling my bumper (for a few reasons) and making sure to do that while it's off... it's a small detail, but usually that stuff is way more visible after an SAS/bumper swap.

So here is my shackle angle. Looks a little on the steep side but not srue what I can do to change it. Without weight on it its 90 degrees, looks a little off in the pic but its straight up and down here. They are at 40 degrees when weight is on them. Can't really move the mount back any cause then they will have the chance to invert. My shackles are 5 inches long. Also I took 2 leafs out of my springs, this could be why they went so flat depending on the height I may or may not put them back in.Suggestions?

Nothing wrong with shackle angle at all. Try compressing just one leaf to get them flat. The shackle should not hit the frame (but if your calculations are correct, they will not.)

Lookin good!

When I built the axle a year ago I called high angle to get the toyota flanges for the front and rear axle. The front one was like $100 and the rear was like $400 since they had just came out. I asked the guy what would be cheaper and he said since I need to put in a cv i would save money just staying with my current yoke.

Gotcha. I was wondering if they had come out with one for a 14-bolt yet.

Shackle angle looks good. Take a grinder to those shackles though and round those corners off. They will look 10x better.


When you get that rear axle under there, can you get me a measurement from the bottom of the diff to the ground?? And from the bottom of the axle tubes to the ground>

Spent the whole day running around for parts, still haven't gotten the brake lines figured out yet. I did get my steering shaft made, it only took 3 vehicles to get all the parts.

One week almost nonstop. Still not done. Still have to put on shocks, finish panhord rod, and line up and weld on the rear axle and do drivelines. Spend 2 days trying to line up the rear axle to finally figure out my front springs center pin wasn't in the same spot on both spring. Trail gear springs suck! The hole is 1/2" off. Here is some pics. Currently the frame is 26" from the ground.


I built my own firewall plate. I used a piece of steel out off the front skid plate. I didn't even have to bend it, the piece had the exact bend as the firewall plate.

I got my oil pan and sump with gasget and fipg at the dealership, it came to around $175. I used my companies dicount though. I did everything myself. Not my first build though, not an expert but have some experience. Thanks!

Oh ya forgot. My axle came with braided lines on it so I didn't want to make new ones. The braided lines fitting was 7/16" instead of the 3/8" which is usually what is used. I ended up getting a fitting to down size it which is what I couldn't find. Finally found one and then bought a hardline from autozone that would fit into it. I then chopped off the one end and put the
10mm on one end and double flared it then hooked it all up.

In the garage it didn't rub under flex, but it probably will when I get it out and flex fon a rock. the spring is almost as flat as it can get since i took out 2 leafs to get the height down. It only compresses 1-1/2 to 2 more inches. I plan on making a tube bumper for the front during christmas break.
