I forgot to mention I was in Tucson Az. about a week ago and I made it a point to stop over to Balistic Fabrication. I got to chat with Jeff and his crew for a bit, had a chance to pic Jeffs brain a little bit about an up coming suspension project that I might be taking on later. Over all it's a great little shop, they have a bunch of there parts in stock and keep busy on the machines producing more. I wish I had brought my camera, any way I couldent leave empty handed. So I picked up some bump stops for the front axle and some 2" bushings for when I get around to building my T-case cross member.

They had a few parts brackets and such burnt but they had much more link type stuff allready to go. Lots of there link inserts, rod ends of various sizes and high steer arms. Id say there pretty busy by seeing the amount of boxes and shipping lables all gathered up!

i just need the upper retainer, it is adjustable, see the two bolts on the side. it's a slick little design i came up with for my truck. There are about 10 holes down the side of it with a matching rail taht welds to the frame so i can adjust the ride height about 10", you can flip the assembly over and use the sanwhich plates and get even more ride height... :-)

Front brake lines! Stainless steel, 23" long. Cost me $56.00 and they where made on site!

10mm male fitting to match the excisting toyota line

And dana 60 caliper banjo fitting on this end, not sure the size I brought the correct bolt with me when I had them made.

I had them origianly put a 45 degree bend on the side of the bango fitting. Im glad I saw how they did it cause I needed a 90 degree bend when I tryed mounting them. They had tooling to make the bend but it wasent much diffrent then how currently did it.

Poser shot! I finally sprung for a good digital camera, Cannon EOS 30D.




My only progress is trying to get these freaking brakes to work. I figured out that the ABS(LSPV) needs to be eliminated and a proportioning valve put in. I have partial brakes now, I know the fronts are working but I can't seam to get full presure to either the fronts or the rears and on top of that I have a pedal that go's all the way to the floor.

another good brake link.

I thought you'd fallen off the face of the earth, been a while since I herd from ya! I made a big oops already, I've driven it around the block a few times and just realized I dident have any fluid in the rear diff! I guess I take care of that today.

The body looks good because it's an optical illusion to the on-line viewer! hehehe. It's a pretty good platform to start with I kinda hope to get some nerf bars and bumpers on it before I get to trail crazy with it. Im trying to keep some of the creature comforts in this build, A/C, Heat, and a nice ride. Id hate to give a list of all the stuff Id like to accomplish because I can't make my mind up about any thing untill it's done. But what I can say is that the functional things are first on the list. Such as hydro assist steering, just driving it around the block really makes the little steering pump squeel!
Id would have diffinetly gone a diffrent rout on the suspension, there would still be 40" tires but there would have been alot more fender trimming before the suspension was set up to keep it as low as possiable.
