    R.J.'s New New Rig

    I joined the Toyota world after ditching my bronco. 2005 Lexus gx470 with 140k miles, so far it was a smart choice.

    Project Expo SAS long travel?

    The BTF high end 4x4 kit is very nice. If you want to stick with IFS then BTF is the only way to go in my opinion, they have kits from entry level to full kill.

    It hasnt been an easy choice. But its just wayyy more than i need or want right now. A simple strong 4x4 is what i want which is why i picked up a bronco.

    For now I just need PATS, and EVAP functions turned off to get the project finished. I've been looking at buying my own software but not sure where to start.

    6" includes a 2.5" torsion crank, im pretty sure the spindles are 3 to 3.5" lift.

    He makes a pin for the uniball uppers so they will work with stock spindle. Get a set of lift spindles, uniball uppers, and put a good shock like a king, or fox in the front and it will work ok. I ran a setup like that for while and it did well.

    Carlovers Desert Beater Build

    The LS based motor would be the engine of choice if I didn't care about street/smog legal. I'm over having to trailer it everywhere, it never gets used because of that. The 5.0 is 50hp and 60tq over the 4.0 OHV, plus a good tune im sure itll be more than enough. Plus I don't want to start...

    5.0 tuning

    Is there anyone on the forum still who does ecu tuning? I know Henson did back in the day but cant find any info on him anymore. I need a 91 octane tune and PATS disabled for a project vehicle.
