Got the radio in, and the gas filler painted and installed with its grommit.

Some interior pics, shots of the gas tank and filler set up, and the painted front bumper, and body "straighting" in the front, so the grill no longer hangs off like a rag doll on the driver side.

Filler neck:

Looks very sano. Think you need any bracing on where those arms connect to the axle? That is a problem area on the later 4Runners.

So why exactly have you not done a solid front axle yet? I thought I saw one in your garage. Too much work?

Holy smokes you've been busy!

I didn't realize how big of a deal it was to see you driving your truck the other day!

Wow..

Not sure what sano means?

The arms mount to the axle with 3/16" plate and then more 3/16 for gussets which tie in underneath. On the previous page, you can see the front mounts a little better.

A SAS is not too much work, its too much money. The axle you see in a HP FJ80. Looking at 700 for the high steer, 700 for axles, several hundred in new seals and hardware/brakes, plus the cost of linked front, which would likely go with coilovers, plus new gears all around, and another locker. It'll happen, but later on.

Looks really clean!

So was the goal to simply move the entire drive train and gas tank up to get more clearance? It's all still the original equipment, just 6 inches higher?

Are you planning to run bigger tires too?

Your fab skills are awesome!

Thanks man!!! That means a lot!

And yes, that was exactly the goal. Still 100% toyota drive train, just up about 5-6". I'll take a shot tonight with the new exhaust on it.

My leaf spring hanger next to the gas tank had rusted almost all the way through, and was a hazard. The radius arms up above the frame have more clearance than a conventional link, and are REALLY strong.

I may bump up to a 315. Not for a while though. The bank account needs to recover and I have some other expenses not too far in the future that will be taking up a bunch ()

"Sano" I guess comes from the custom dirt bike, street bike, or modified vehicle area. Literally, "sanitary"... as in "really friggin' clean". No unnecessary hoo-haw. Spiffy. Well designed and effective for the intended purpose. Schlick man.

Ah

When I googled it, I got about 20 different languages, and they meant many different things.
