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.

Also got busy on tearing down the old front end and getting ready for the 9.5 hybrid.
Re-did the front hanger, went back to the factory 29" spring center got the front in place and mocked up the perches and pinion angle.

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
