    Not a build thread (Cause a SAS isn't a build)

    Ok,I bought an original owner 3rd gen, drove it a year stock, and got made fun of for buying a truck with "a million miles on it" (275K) I put 10K on it in a year. Then I tore into it, standard stuff nothing earth shattering.

    Most of it was off the shelf stuff more or less, between second Gen Taco stuff, and third Gen 4runner parts. I got caught up on the radiator. I'm sure there is an easy fix, but I didn't find it.
    the front bracket got in the way, so the smallest manual trans 4 cyl radiator sat above the frame. bought an aluminum shroud and the largest SPAL fan I could shove in there.
    wel that didn't work, I couldn't cool it and blew a head gasket

        Did a motor, then the trans started acting up.
        replaced solenoids, no luck, drove fine as long as you pulled it into first from a start. drove it almost 4 months with a check engine and manually starting in first until I found the probe going into the trans missing for the solenoid.
        $18 Toyota harness, and it's back in business.

          I dig your "build"...Looking to do something similar in the next couple years. I just did a 3" suspension lift and 1" body. Its a daily driver right now so i didn't want to get to crazy. Were headed to JV for Hammers this year so i already know i'll be coming back with the itch to build mine up. Did you run an IFS toyota steering box?

            I'll dig thru my crap and see what I can hunt down for pics. I know there are 100 ways to build one of these, I just happened to have the running gear out of a first gen, so that's what i went with.

            Ya, IFS drilled and tapped for Hydro assist

                  My wife loved driving it in stock trim, But I bought it for a reason,

                  So I went to storage and dug out some shit.
                  put it on jack stands and blindly started cutting stuff off.

                  I started on the front Thinking it would be the tough end, then stopped and moved to the oil pan, and trans, working on the crossmember and dual Cases.

                    It had the wrong adapter on it, for a manual trans. so had to swap that, and figure crossmember mounts
