Trucks done, it\'s good, you should look at it.

It is 99% done. Duffco did the work if you didn't know already. It went a little over schedule but turned out nice. I put the limil straps on tonight, after I took these pics. The brake cable needs to be mounted still, the old stainless line I had was too short. Gonna pick that up at TMR tomorrow. FYI, the $125 fuel injection fuel pump McKenzies sells seems to work great on my Toyota. I also got a realy good fuel filter there for about $100 that can be disasembled and cleaned.
The truck works way better then before. My old test spots around town are not big enough anymore. It just sucks up anything in the back and seems to transfer a lot of weight off the front. I can't wait to jump it and hit some big whoops!

Does your truck have "streamlined tubing shackle gussetts"?!? I think not!

Re: Aero Shackle Gussets

How much at-speed lift are you getting from those aero gussets ? Or are they set for downforce ? ;)

Seriously, it looks cool.

Re: Aero Shackle Gussets

Those aerodynamic shackles probably earn you a few extra mpg.

Re: Aero Shackle Gussets

Personally I like them under the axle because it makes the truck sit lower and gives more up travel without putting the spring into a negative arch.

Re: Aero Shackle Gussets

The u-bolts are a little too long. I am going to cut them down or get shorter ones. I actually have the Total Chaos u-bolt plates on there. If I had the right length u-bolts, they would not hang below the spring pack at all.

fish- he means flip the ubolts, not the spring.
