Nice work man, That thing is gonna be sweet.

I totally dig it.

Will a hood scoop from a later model 4-runner fit?

Maybe. I haven't decided how to do that part. I'm leaning toward cutting the hood along the "v" and just raising the center to cowl it. Anybody know good body guys? Seems all the ones I knew aren't in the business anymore.

Ok from the grave...

As most know the Blue Raja has been running quite well for the past 2 year with the 3.4 and SC. Yes it still has a hole in the hood. Here's a couple pics with the rooftop tent rack build and such






And now on to the suspension! Decided to go with the Chevy 63" springs. It is supposed to be a great mod for flex and ride. Here's a before pic:

Yea but, fabrication! And wife truck!

We will be keeping the blue truck as a DD and petrol powered, self propelled camping trailer. The Chili would be scary with the RTT on it. Ashley enjoys driving offroad so if she continues to enjoy it we'll keep the Raja. If not you'll probably see it up for sale on here.

I'm also using it as a trial run to modify the Chili's rear suspension. If this supplies good travel and stability on the Raja it will get copy/pasted onto the Chili.

Starting tear down. I had to cut off half my spring hanger to get the old leafs out and had to cut the u-bolts too. POIOIOING!!! That was exciting.
