The swing-down tire carrier looks killer Scotty, nice work! What's left to finish?

They help clear his rear crossmember when fully drooped.


Basically the same thing as boomerang shackles in the front of Toyota's to help clear the body mount.

We forgot to rework his frame tie-ins for the cage. IMHO, he needs to ditch that cage and build a taller one. John literally had his head sticking out of the cage when he sat in it. :lmao:

That is one clean 2nd gen. Sounds like it'll be a sick ride when it's done. 3.4 swap in future plans or do you know?

Yes. It allows you to weld the bump stop extensions to the frame and not the springs. :D
Wise-ass... like I know anything about anything. :eek:

I usually see stops coming from the frame with the rubber side down so I was (naturally) confused.

why 61.25"? I saw this in your other thread and was curious why you chose that particular number. I know they can be custom width, but taco's are 60.75", lots go with 63", I think ruffstuff only makes 65"... the numbers seem kind of arbitrary.


EDIT: kind of sucks to hi-jack this thread with more questions about that jeep, but that tire carrier kicks ass. I've been planning almost exactly the same, I'll be talking to you about that soon.

Based on Brian's research and real world measurements, the 61.25 is the actual Taco width up front.
