Seeing as I cannot update the build page that Mr. Zuka created, I will create my own.

We are on the final stages of the build. All the little things! [!] little things.

Specs for the new build include the following:

-1985 Toyota front and rear solid axles
-Front trussed w/ rear samurai leafs
-Rear has track bar w/ rear YJ leafs
-Welded rear with 5.29 gears (Aussie locker to be going infront)
-O-Square d-shaft [f]
-Darryl custom rear d-shaft
-Darryl custom steering
-Line-loc in the rear
-Flat deck lifted 6-8 inches, gas tank spun 90 degrees
-Battery box under the deck w/ Dual Optima red tops, 12v to 115v digital converter
-ProComp ES3000 shocks w/ Ford f250 shock towers
-33x12.5x15 Super Swamper TSL (Measured as 35's)

It is still a work in progress. We are hoping to have it done a couple weeks before May long to test it out before camping at Goldbridge. Annnnnddd STOKED!!!! [36] [36]
