never even thought of the motor mounts .. i'm so busy (booking into June) not sure I want anymore , but with my "helicopter" buddies computerized plasma torch .. ya just never know ... he's already cut me some brackets for my "cantilever " suspension on my 2WD project ... NICE . what I really want is an oven , and powder coating supplies ......
Thats what i'm kinda thinkin' with the gears .. 190 HP .. and 33's .. the 4:10's should be good ... ya gotta remember , this is not a rock crawler .. the odd fishin' trip , but mostly MALLS for now . I also plan on droppin' a supercharger on it .. so 240HP .. over the original 98HP ..
I think that making greaseable shackles is a great idea. Trail Gear and others want like $75+ for a set. Don't forget that you will need to slot the bushings to allow the grease a place to go...but I am sure you have that covered....with 30 years or whatever experience in Toyota trucks you seem to have run into everything ;D
Yep .. I figured , I got the shackles out and all cleaned up and stuff (por-15'd ) I might just as well use mine . neighbor said i could "borrow" his lathe .. so i'm good to go .. just have to find the time now
