A repost from the old Pirate... looking to keep the thread and updates going

Quick recap of how I got to where I am today... Bought this truck bone stock with a blown motor back in 2014 for $1k... dropped in a salvage yard motor and all the usual stuff (clutch, Seals, gaskets) and got it road legal with only $3400 including the cost of the truck. It then got a 44 front with 35s and a tube bed, then switched the tube bed up and a few more sets of 35s, then an Atlas 4 went in with an exo cage, and then one-tons last year in 2019, so that's about where we are today.

Built a platform over the spare tire to strap storage boxes and coolers too. A few pics right after the tons swap and a couple mild wheeling pics

Hit the local off road park on Memorial Day weekend. This was the first real beating that the truck has had since the one ton swap. Had a blast, and ripped the traction bar mount off the rear axle. That cast welding didn't hold up, so back to the drawing board there.

I am pumped to see your continuing this build. I just spent the last several days reading through your build on pirate and I want to see where this build continues

You're giving me a lot of baaaad ideas for my std cab V-6 Taco...Hmmmm
What are your thoughts on wheeling full width vs. stock width? How's the turning radius on a new 60?

Looks great btw!

I will in due time. Rear is done and the transmission is currently a pile of parts that I’m not sure how they go back in. :flipoff2:I’m waiting on a few parts for the front plus an FJ80 steering box. I would have to empty my garage to post pictures worth a fuck. I’m doing this in an HOA so I have to be covert about shit.

I enjoyed wheeling both width axles honestly, but the full widths are better because they are wider/heavier, thus much more stable. The turning radius was great with the 60, better than it was with the 44 up front previously

But, all good things come to an end. Starting parting it out in November after a good 6 years of owning/wheeling it. I was planning on building something else, but I am not sure now. I got a good chunk of change for everything and I am looking to start my own business so the money will probably end up going toward that and putting a new roof on my house before the next hurricane comes through and destroys it :flipoff2:
