Thanks bro. I still have a ton of shit to finish. I have been too busy working these days to finish any of it. I drive it to work every day. Usually to somewhere in the bay. I got some 35" MTRs to run on the street. Im going to sell my 36 SXs and get some new 37s for wheeling. The little fucker does 85+ mph down the freeway and gets 16 mpg. This winter I will finish everything.

Build belly pan
put my lockright up front and get ARB for the rear
hydro assist
37's
bumpers/exo
double triple quadruple roll bar j/k
take to referee for the efi i swapped in- the smog guy wont smog it as it is
Mount gas tank (its just ratchet strapped down in the bed)
Mount real shocks in rear ( im running 8 inch ranchos just to drive on the freeway)

I went to the referee today and got my EFI swap approved so I could smog it. It had no problem passing. I finally get a pink slip and plates. I had to get it weighed today too. It weighs 3160. Thats even with 18 gallons of gas.

Reff was cool. He did say that one of the vacuum switches that was on the motor didnt belong there, which is bullshit because it is on every 22re ive ever owned. He still gave me the sticker though. The smog guy said the same thing so I had to go home and take the hood off my room mates truck to show the guy the vacuum diagram. Im too lazy to go get my paper work out now, but tomorrow I will post up all the shit you need to know about seeing the reff.

Did a couple things this past week. I decided where the tank is going and mounted it. I need to get some sheet metal and make a cover.

I lowered it down as far as I could without hitting the exhaust and the drive line on up flex.

I shaved one side of the fire wall. I cut out way more than I did on the 4runner. It should clear the 37's its getting.
Here is the stock, tire cutting fire wall

Here is what I cut off...

New sheet metal...

Might take a "paid winter vacation", so I will get all my little bullshit done

How come you don't just move the front axle up? Just wondering.

Do what you gotta do!

It is moved up. About 3" from stock. I dont have much lift. Its a Toyota thing, you wouldnt understand. People do move them up more, but they are using the same 48" spring I am and the shackle is straight up and down. I had it way forward on my first rig and it flexed like shit. Right now when my spring is flat, my shackle is as far back as it can safely go. I could of moved the hole in the frame for the shackle forward, but that would be lame. Another option I was thinking of doing was using third gen yota rears. They are 52" long and would put you 2" more forward than 2nd gen rears. Problem would be the front spring hanger being so far out in the front. I would need 40s. That would be cool, but not on yota axles with the way I drive. 37s are going to be bad enough. My front works perfect. There is just a little sheet metal in the way. I can turn full lock fully stuffed the way I shaved it.

I still have the 4runner and its going to get all the big boy stuff.
