In the sliders or any high contact areas you might think about using DOM or sleeving the hrew since it dents pretty easily....

Are you keeping a back seat?

Are you chopping off the rear frame and going tube since you are linking it?

I agree also, I wouldn't use HREW anywhere it will have contact with rocks. Interior bars and supports its ok. As Rockape said, it dents really easy. Keep in mind; your labor is the same no matter what material you use. So do it right with the proper material the first time. Or you will be doing it again next year. I will only use chromoly anymore if it's gonna see rocks.

Keeping the rear seats, rear frame is gunna be gone using tube, for rock sliders I like the idea of square tube, and I was gunna try TJ coils.

Wow Dave! I didn't know you were doing all this, that explains why you havn't been out to p-hill the last few times.
Looking good, I think you will be much happier with your rig now fitting into the tight stuff

yea I've made some progress Its been slow lately






Sorry about the shitty pics.....All I have is a cell phone.
The front end is all done except for the radiator over flow.
So my plans have changed a little I am going to boat side it and instead of stand alone coils I am going with 14" fox air shocks. The next step is the boat side. I have the interior gutted, the electrical moved, and the ECU moved into my glove box. Time to start cutting!

No Kid! I need all the cargo space that I can get so I'm getting rid of the runner seats and putting in a single low back seat with harnesses. That way I have space for my tool bag, batteries, and ammo cans.

Slow but good Got the links & brackets set up also got a main hoop on.I get my Fox 2.0 14'' air shocks on monday. got my rear seat, Ive been working on rear disc brakes lately. As soon as my shocks come in I can build the back half. In the pics the wheel base is 112'' is that good for a yota? I think it used to be around 106''-108''. some pics

I think 112" wheel base is a good all around length.My truck is 112" with a 22" belly height.Cant wait to see that thing done,your going to love the boat sides.Any way you can imboard (triangulate) the top of the lower links? It would help the rear steer when you flex alot.
