      "Build thread" but without all those pesky details.

      39.5 on 16s
      5.38 Yukon gears
      Dana 60 front welded - 3 link
      ​​​​Sterling 10.25 rear welded - 4 link triangulated
      Hydro assist
      16 inch 2.0 FOA front coilovers 18 inch 2.0 SAW air shocks
      Fuel cell, tube bed, booty fab tool box, and random other shit

      Since I can't leave well enough alone, I'll build or do other shit and keep myself entertained. If I fuck something up, I expect to receive feedback to let me know.

                  Yeah, that was weird, I could see them just fine, but only if I was logged in. I was having a little party with myself.

                        That's why my initial offer was so low. Nice, truck, OP.

                        Did you go with a 3 link kit for the front, or piece together your own? I am looking at doing a similar setup KP 60 / Sterling rear on my 96 and am going back and forth on 3 link or leaves. I would probably go with the one of the Barnes builders kits if I did links.

                          I pieced it together. I was really heavy into the calculator, but no matter how I would have done it, it could really only go together one way while still keeping ground to frame under 26".

                          If I had it to do again, I would have chosen a different truss for the front and rear. The basic truss on the front forced me to create a bunch of custom brackets. If you're working with a 1st gen tacoma, I highly suggest getting the WFO crossmember. I spent a bunch of time trying to build a piece just to scrap it after finding this crossmember. It has the radius arm brackets built into it, which you can slide 1.25" heims right into for the lowers. Then just burn in an upper where you can and your frame side of the links are done.

                          I didn't really see any kits I felt were worth the money, save the RuffStuff 7/8 steering kit (which fits pretty much everything). There's not a whole lot of room in there to work with.

                            Awesome, I appreciate the insight.

                            Did you have to notch the frame up front to clear the panhard bar? Did you built a new section from the cab forward?

                              Used a piece of scrap and the press with some angle iron arranged in an unsafe way to build a winch plate... I really need to get a press brake.Click image for larger version
