87 Toyota pickup

Post by POS-hardbody on Mon Dec 12, 2011 10:11 pm

Alright, due to request, ill post my 87 Toyota Pickup build. First things first. The project is on hold at the moment(moved houses and need 220 power supply put in, got in some trouble with the law a while back and had some court fees etc.) also waiting to find a nice plasma cutter so i dont have to be fuckin around with a sawz all. With that out of the way, this is the breakdown. 87 Toyota Pickup 4cyl, 22r motor, 4 spd. Dad gave it to me when i was 14, and fiddled with it for awhile in the backyard for about a year, then i decided i wanted to do something more with it. Ive always loved mini trucks, since i was little when my dad would carry me out to Slamfest. In the end i want a simple bagged truck that will lay frame, dont plan on body dropping it but you never know. Slam bag SS 6's if i can remember correctly, 2 Air Zenith OB2's, Parker 1/2" valves if i can remember right, and two 5 gallon tanks.



Here is the truck the first day i pulled it in the front yard to start stripping it down.



Snatched the bed off

Bought the wheels before i started cutting and all that so im positive that they will fit.



KMC matte black Venoms 20"
Now ordering these wheels i knew they wouldnt tuck into the 2wd fenders, so it was no surprise



Solution...


Hung them on to get an idea




Some shitty cutting


And jacked up the wheel... it tucked, sorta.


Didnt want to spend the money for CanDo control arms, so we built our own.
OEM lower

Sketch so we can make the jig

...










Same base for the upper jig, just rebolted shit.



The heim joint


They'll screw into the little housing which will be welded to the uppers so they can be adjusted.
To bolt to the frame






In the end...

And two inch drop spindles


And now the truck is chillin in the new garage, due to the previously mentioned reasons. Just have to get back on track. But uh, thats it for now.

I bet you could market toyota/nissan arms an make some money. Though the profits probably wouldn't be worth the time spent in the R&D,Building,Testing,Reproducing, in the long run.

Arms Look sick though!

Ive thought about it. Once the jigs are made, its a straight shot. Bend some DOM tubing and get to welding.

Def. money to be made , just could become a big hassle IF something were to happen with a arm breaking or just anything.

Alright alright, like i said earlier this morning i have some small update. As most of you know(some dont) i moved houses after i we got the trucks front end apart and it wasnt driveable. We had to settle into the new house and get into the groove of everything again, which took way too fucking long. So with that said... Weve been needing to get 220 put into the house for the welder to run, we have needed a new sawzal and a few other misc bullshit. Which we got just about everything. Still need to buy 3 sets of matching jack stands so everything is level and not a leaning and shit. Those should be bought by the end of this week. And tubing and metal materials will be picked up along the way. So with the new sawzal, a few cut off discs and grinding wheels, we got to removing all the factory suspension shit from the front passenger side(no reason for that side being first, just the side that the wheel well was cut out first so we just continued that side). Got all that out and then moved to the other side, snatched out the factory control arms and cut the wheel well out of that side. Small update i know but it'll get the ball rolling, also we got a pretty badass phone call from my dads friend last night so i should be having a surprise for you fuggers here soon. On with the pictures!!!!!!!
My dads big ass under there hammering out the bushing for the old lower.


Said bushing....

Quick mock up of the arms we made and the drop spindles before anything was all cut the fuck up.


This is what happens to a truck left in my garage with a busted windsheild.

Fat man down there cuttin away at the old



Sick ass picture of the welder, wouldve liked a Miller more but we found this one for a stupid low price. It works fuckin beastly.


I get side tracked....

Back to whatever the hell was goin on

Most of it cut out



No pictures of the grinding away at shit cause i was doing the grinding.

THEN...



So thats that shit! Simple update.
By the way, this is what it started off like...

Alright, quick update... Got the "spacer" made up for the lowers, and we were able to mock everything up. Got the wheel mocked up and played around with it a little. Were going to have to tub the cab a little to get as low as we can with these 20's. Fuck it. Gotta do what you gotta do.







Since the bag brackets we had didnt fit right...








Still need to notch the front so the bag clears without problems. Then gotta cut out the passenger side shit and mirror the driver side.

No plasma table here. The pops owns a Haas VF1, over where he works. So he cut'em out in that. And yea we're defininetly going to have to notch the front of the frame for the bag. It wont clear without it.

Hell yea , Yea seems like everyone is notching the frame now , unless they run like firestone 2500s in the front that are super small. Slams are the way to go IMO so it will be worth the work for sure.

Yesterday was the start of boxing the driver side frame for the bag to clear. Here we go... Got fat man down there cuttin shit.


But once we got that peice of metal out of there, we found this little fucker hiding back there.

Not sure what it was, but its gone now...

Then checking whatelse needs to go.


THIS PIPE!


Cleanup for some welds... And apparently some shit got on the lense.


Battery on the GoPro died, and got annoyed of watching so i got to welding.

Finished product. Didnt get a picture of it, but under the section we put the pipe in, we had to get a little radius on a flat sheet of steel then tack it, and hammer it to get shape. Which worked pretty fuckin good.


DA CLEARENCE!


Now just have to weld the bracket in, finish the bracket on the lowers and mirror it on the other side and front will be done.
