No way!!. It will all make sense when I get some work done. Im doing away with the body mounts. The floor and body will be solid mounted the frame. The cage is going in before the floor gets new sheet metal too. Im doing all this so when I get the urge to loose all the body, I will already have a buggy.

And why do I need it done for April{Confused} ? Im not going to the Hammers and the snow wont melt till June. So, I will see you guys in june......and you better not be in the way, i'll drive over your ass {Kiss}

Alright folks, I did a little work on my pos this weekend. I plated the inside and bottom of my frame from the front shackle to the rear spring hanger with 4" 3/8 angle iron. No more landing on the stock 1/8" frame rails or getting hung up on my rear spring hanger. Image
I also finnished my t cace X member. I used 2" 1/4 wall box tube and the center ring from Front Range Off Road. The bushings are for a Toyota leaf spring. Way beefier than FROR's $300 X member. Oh yeah, I have $80 into it total. Image Image
So now my motor and tranny are mounted. I still have to weld all the 3/8s stuff with Scotts welder. The little 115v lincoln im using wont do it. I have 1 more X member to add to the frame that will eventualy have link mounts attatched to. Im almost ready to put the floor back in. Image Once I have everything back together I will start on the belly pan :boobs:

looks good :homo: would look better once that floors in! you need to tow it over and weld the 3/8 on before the floor goes in !!! :boobs: bender bender bender I need a damn bender so I can cage mine this year too!!! and you know your needing it too buddy, once the house closes escrow and I have a few duckets I need to get me one of them'ns :thumbsup:

how much weight did the 3/8 angle add{Confused} ?? those were like 80 pounds a piece in full legth in the side yard :fake: now you can surf over anything without denting that frame

looks sweet make sure you have spring bushing motor mounts with that tranny mounts otherwise you end up crackingthe case around the bolts , and if you dont have them , Rockstomper.com has em 75 bucks a set thats cheaper than stock {Grin}

I was going to make some motor mounts like that, but never did. Does it break the case because the stock motor mounts are softer?

Re: Coles 4runner (28th Apr 09 at 3:33pm UTC)
Yes it can break the tcase/tranny because the stock motor mounts are to soft and they flex and the solid crossmember doesn't allow the tcase/tranny to move. I bought a set of motor mounts from rockstomper after going to a tcase crossmember like yours. $75 for the pair and like Hengl said thats cheaper than stock. Only issue is I get more vibrations at idle. I like it now because the motor/tcase/tranny don't move at all very solid!
