holy crap that's a lot of busted knuckles and empty beer cans worth of work. wow. feeling really lucky JD is here in SoCal for the install. I'm also envious of you trucktards pulling all this off in your garages.
Only thing it do is get a garage and start fucking up. I recommend doing that in private until it looks good for the 'grams:)

Front cross member, based on the location of the IFS skid, burned in and plated to the frame. This will also be the basis for the bumper.

Next step is rad, AC, other shit, and cage members to hold that all together. Diff and steering are ready to go back in too, once I'm sure they won't have to come out again. After the mechanic shit is done it's on to bending LCAs.

You have room to work in there? I guess you make it work when you don't. :)

lucky ya didn't get a grease fire...that floor. its not like the old days where could pour out the oil and make hardpack. haha.

nice stuff. you'll be go-hard-and-fast mode soon!
It's been cleaned with kitty litter several times since having oil dumped on it, but it's had a lot of oil dumped on it.

Yeah, it's coming along quickly now, I just have to build LCAs and Spindles that work...

We'll see if this works, but I think I have a 100% bolt on shock relocate for the 2nd and 3rd gen Taco.

Sadly for @skatefreak282 that means she'll be talking to a lot of people who want bolt on shit for their tacos.
I knew that was coming. LOL. I'm making it worse for myself since you're welding mine on. :banana:
