Been doing CL cruising and found a nice gem for a good deal. Big bearing 9" with 31 spline axles and 65" wms-wms.
This will come in handy down the road i'm pretty sure.

Started on the rear bumper still have to put the wrap around sides on. mix of square and round tube. 3/8s home made bracket that wrap around the main tube. everything is just tacked for now. Leaving the windows of change open for now. the sides will be high and tight, and follow the body lines. also thinking about trimming and capping the lower rear part of fender to clear 37's in the future.

Once all that was taken care of pulled it out and got final tube measurements and cut her down. Wms for this axle is set at 65.5" the new rear will be 65". Went with ruff stuffs u-bolt eliminator perches so to be as high clearance as possible. Dropped off the ends and housing today should have it back by the end of the week.

Looking good.... 8)

Will (Daughters B/F in Todd valley) took his blue 93' 4 door 4runner up to the con this last weekend and tried out his 63"+, 4th gen 4 runner disc brake rear axle with 1.5" wheel spacers and his 65" wide Ruff Stuff front,, had no issues, he was the only one in his group to walk right up Soup Bowl.. 8)

One of the best axle manufacturers in the nation right here in our backyard in good old Loomis. I'm on axle number 4 and I've worked with Dan firsthand they will build you whatever you want exactly to your specs

Front axle is complete, and handles exactly like its supposed to. Only other thing that was updated along with the axle was the steering got new tie rod and draglink. Full heim steering with double sheer pitman.

Final front width is 66" wms. I added some 1-1/4 spacers on the rear to get it out to 65.5 wms for now till the new hybrid rear is done

Took the runner out for a shake down run at the end of October to hell hole jeep trail. A little hunting a little fishing and wheeling. Its not fordcye hard but its gotten a little more rutted and has a few good areas that helped put the runner through its paces. I enjoy this trail because its tight and there is no bypasses :mrgreen: .

In the process found with the re-located and narrowed suspension in the front fenders that were once clear are now rubbing. With minimal trimming in the rear because I knew they would hit, the rears are also still hitting. I think because of the increased articulation in the front and leverage of a wider setup.

So instead of adding height in suspension.... To keep my low rider low cause, I'm happy were it sits I'm going to sacrifice sheet metal instead. Going to factor in the future jump to 37's in the cutting. Besides trimming fenders I plan on tubing the firewall and re-tubing the rear wheel wells. Took 2" out of the front fender, will ajust the front bumper later. I've got a neat idea that I think will add a little character.
