    Roktoy's 2009 Build

    Well I have been lurking the site the past year, and just recently registered. What a better way to introduce myself then most pics of my rig. My 1988 4runner has gone many transformations through the past few years, and now to say the least there isn't much 4runner left.

    When I first bought the truck on 33"s




    A year later I got the itch and SAS'd it

    Typical Toyota build- Hysteer, 38" TSL, 5.71 gears, 5" AllPro springs, etc..







    Then I flopped it



    Decided to make the bedsides flat, and bobbed 4"







    Now fast forward to this year, heres what I've gotten done thus far.

    My cheapy diamond axle



    Moving axle back another 1"

    I will post more of my build, once I get my trail gear order at the end of the week. As it stands I pulled the 3.0L out, and Im putting a 22R in with dual t-cases.

    i would guess since the 22 is bulletproof. my question is why the 22r, not the 22re? i would imagine you are gonna be doing some climbing hence the dual cases. so why not the re?

    or a big ole v8

    I would put an axle in the back of it, as I'm sure that barrel will wear out fast. lol anyway looking good.

    I decided to go with the 4cyl because as ianseldon said they are bulletproof. I blew the original v6 in the truck, then I swapped in a 1992 v6 last year and am not happy with the 3.0L motors. I will see a significant HP drop, but the dual cases will make up for it.

    I have a couple 22re's to choose from but have decided against dealing with wiring this time around, there is painless and ORS but they want too much dough.

    To me the 22R is the easiest to install and repair. I am hoping propane will help on the hills and off camber situations.

    Im planning on keeping it lightweight, so v8 is out of the question.

    Propane is freaking awesome off road. My v8 will idle at 400 rpm and not bog and stall out when you tromp on it. No more sputtering, bogging, lagging, flooding, just a great swap for driveability. It will also run upside down and any angle in between. I do not ever plan on using a carb again other than showing my kids what used to be under a hood.
