LOL!

Tuffy box no fit in Baby Beast....Tranny tunnel is too high. It would become a nice wall between the passenger and myself.

DC converter isn't an issue at all.

And for driveline noise, I'm close to a solution I hope. Robbie brought his new chassis ears to breakfast this morning and we took a little listen:

Driver side wheel bearing is BAD. Whoo boy. Passenger is less bad, but still not good. Some grumbling with the output on the tcase too.

Looks like 300,000 miles is the limit on these bearings. Not bad really.

Call me compulsive. I replaced mine at 170K.








Then you can call me stupid, because I went full floater after that. DOH!

Boy, full floater has been circling around in my mind....

Funny thing is, with good PP semi float shafts, new bearings seals, etc from Marlin, you are only a few hundred shy of the FF kit.

I'm just not in a position to fork out the cash right now. I'm going to wait on FF stuff and just order Marlin's kit.

The FRORF full floater kit also boasts better brakes. It is a win win.

Then you can do the rears with the same tools as the WBPP folks!
FWIW, if I had it to do over, I would do the Celica calipers with the mechanical ebrake. Just sayin'.

My goodness, this thread met attention deficit disorder, didn't it!

Yes it did, but I don't mind. I've got my answer, and dreaming about FF never hurt anyone, right?

I picked up a few of those iPod connectors, I need to make a line level out and power cord for my iPhone so that I can play it through a stereo, too. In any case I have total of 4 connectors if you want one of them. I could probably say with certainly that after about Jan 13 or so I should be flexible on time. We should breadboard a mixer to see how that works, the rest is mostly just fabbing cables.

why make your own? why not just a 1/8 to rca? I mean the sound quality of mp3's bites anyways, so why make a big deal? In the truck I run two cables to a bracketron holder, or stick it in the ashtray. I need a usb and 110 power source for my work anyway, so it's a no brainer for me.

iPods don't have a line out into an 1/8" plug, line level sits in the bottom connector. The plug was a couple of bucks. Need the plug for power anyway and it's nice not to have a ton of wires coming out from all over. MP3s sound fine, can't really be discerning over the whine of gears, next-to-open exhaust, BFG MTs and a tin can cabin. Sometimes I feel like wearing earplugs, so that I can't make out details in a Dvorzak 5th symphony encoded 128Kbps MP3 isn't surprising.

Not following this?

How do you switch between the two, and how do you control volume?

My entire goal here is to get rid of the head unit completely. I hate it, it takes up tons of space, and its a theft target. I don't care about sound quality anyway, as one: I don't listen to that cool of music, and two: trying to make anything sound good in a car, especially a first gen 4runner, is as pointless as it gets. Even in nice cars, you still have road noise to deal with.
