106 Hilux, crossover, 3 link rear. Tough tourer

Unread post by 94 TURBO HILUX » May 29th, 2012, 8:51 pm

im finally setting up a buildup, even though my 4b is almost at the point where im happy with it, ive still got a few things i want to do to it..

the story goes i bought it from my uncle 3 years ago sitting in a paddock going to waist. he used and abused it for years until he moved on with a newer car.

it had a freshly rebuilt 2.8, like 10000ks fresh, with a fresh denco turbo kit running 14psi.(a bit high i think)
f n r 4;3 lsd's
and a cool comp bar

i owned a ln65 with a fair bit of work done to it so i started swapping all the good bits over

i swaped; the diff centres over, i had a trutrac in the rear of the 65, and i prefer the 4;5 ratio
alloy radiator
all the suspension, new 3"EFS
front tailshaft

i then regoed it, 2months later took it to the cape..

myself the missus and my 2 best mates set off as 21yr old mud monkeys to do the cape from brisbane in 14 days( work comitments) TRIP OF A LIFETIME!!!!

the worst thing happened to me that changed my life forever, i lost my best mate to a accident on the way home. it took the high away real fast.

the rebuilding of my ute is dedicated to him.. "

its not any heavier than a normal bar, i can pull it off and put it on myself. the top hoop is alloy. and the springs seem to have handled it..until i put a winch in.

i painted my bullbar white, i never liked the red, it came with red when i bought it.

and the under tray toolbox i built for my mates patrol. mines the same as that one except the way i mounted it. coz my alloy tray has the main rails.

next up ive gota play with my rear leaf pack a little, just to make it work a little easier. ive thought about ifs rears but i dont want to run ext shackles, unless theres a way to have 2"lift with ifs rears and a standard shackle.

all this heavy work will have to wait coz im only 2 weeks out of collorbone surgery and im stuck in a sling, 4 more week till im out of the sling. then leafs get done then landcruiser for a .. :D
