    have had this truck since Feb 2010 and it has had a few different steps along its lifetime to get where it is now.

    On to the 3 Link, Automatic, Atlas, Beadlocks and Full Hydro.


    I went with a Junkyard A340F from an 02 Tacoma and Atlas II 4.3 with an AA 50-5710 adapter. Changed the trans filter and shift solenoids for good measure. Ill be using the Rad Designs Rock shifter and Baja shifter to manually control the Auto.

    I fabbed up a floor cover. I tried to keep all 4 shifters in relatively the same location.

      Blue Torch Ram Mount was way too tall and had to be cut down to optimize the steering arm angles. I added some additional length to the top to utilize 4 Ram clamps.

      Finished product with the PSC XR 2.5 x 8" Ram and some 1.5" DOM .25 WT runners notched to fit the base of the mount. The steering arms are from Barnes 4WD and are still a little more exposed than I would like. I still may add some additional tube to protect them down the road. FYI the older clamps (black bolts) have a fine thread pitch and the newer ones (silver bolts) are coarse thread. I don't know why PSC changed these..

        Just thought I would share some of the pics from my front 3 Link. I sacrificed a little by not redoing the front frame rails and mounting my upper link out side of the DS frame rail. Does it work?...Yes. Could it have been designed and executed Better? Yes. The majority of all the brackets and maounts used were from Artec Industries.

        I extended the mount for the passenger side to get the PH as long as possible.

          I had to move each of the shock hoops forward and angled them back approximately 9 degrees. I added some scab plates to the frame mount areas.

          Pass Side coilover mock up. 14" travel Foxes with 14" 150lb uppers and 16" 225 lb lower springs from Ryan @Accutine Offroad.

          Final installation.. I ended up with 5" up travel and 9" of down travel. 25.5" frame height.
          Eibach bumps installed on the coilover shafts. Brake lines are routed down each of the lower links

                  I had to tear in the the front end a while back to replace some broken fasteners. So I just spent a little more and upgraded a few other things.
                  Solid Industries 35 spline drive flanges, all new Spicer seals, Spicer knuckle studs, ARP Steering studs and a set of Reid Racing KP knuckles.

                  I had them powder coated wrinkle red. I need to recheck all of the fasteners then take a hot lap around my block and scare some kids.

                  And a new set of Red Lug nuts since they were 2 bucks cheaper than the black ones for the set

                        Stop lol. Probably going to use that for something else. I have a set of Super duty axles, the 5.3 LM7 and a TH400 taking up space in the garage.

                          Thanks. My buddy did a great job putting my idea into Solidworks and bending it up.
