Very clean with no damage but I'm moving to Washington D.C. and must sell. Contact Jim @ 559-994-9397 if interested. I'm in Fresno, CA but I'm willing to deliver almost anywhere.

I hate the annoying "That looks great, but I cant afford it...Bump" posts, but DAMN, that looks great, and I cant afford it....Bump

Very nice rig, with awesome equipment, good luck with the sale.

Yep, I learned a lot for the next build though.:( :( :cool: It'll be a couple years before the job allows the time, but I'll buy another one and build it again. ;)

Nope, I spent too much time and money getting this one right. I would just be screwing the next owner over if I took anything off it. :cool: I'm sure I could make more money off it, but it wouldn't be right.;)

Assuming the next owner actually uses it for what it was built for.;)

if someone buys this rig w/o knowing what it was build for he is a complete dolt. :rolleyes: besides...I doubt it will be sold to someone so stupid.

I am interested, you have built one amazing truck, its basically what I am working on turning my truck into. I would need to sell my truck first if I were to buy yours, how soon do you need to sell it? Also do you have a list of all of the mods that you have done to it?

Thanks

I'm in no real hurry. I should be leaving for D.C. sometime in January 08, so if it sells between now and then it'll make delivering it to someone easier. Once I'm in the new job I may not have the time to deliver it.

I'll see if I have the list I started (for myself) at one time and post it up after I update it.

Ok Sounds Great Jim. I look forward to the list. Also, how much lift does the truck have? What size tires? What kind of MPG are you getting?

Thanks

I'm running about a 34" tire (BFG 295/75R16) and get around 14-16 MPG but I have a pretty heavy foot too. I found and updated my list (as far as I can remember anyway) and will post it in a new post below-

p.s. I have the coilovers cranked up to give about 2.5" of lift in the front. The rear sits a little over 3".

The cv boots don't wear (beyond normal), since the ribs don't touch each other at this height.;)

No rubbing after the body mounts were cut/plated and the pinch weld folded over with a BFH, the ARB Bumper had to be clearanced too.:saw:

Does it have front and rear ARB lockers or is it the e-locker in the rear?

Stock Toyota e-locker in rear and ARB air locker up front. I just changed the stock e-locker switch out so it matched the front and the compressor switches. There's not really an ARB compressor (it's a VIAIR 450) either, but I wanted all the switches in that row to match.:rolleyes:

How does the 4.56 gearing feel with the 34" tires? Any lack of power?
