With that ability to run air tools your Toyota could become a Mobile trail side repair vehicle.
Have you had a chance to test out the locker yet? I know of some rocks that you could go test it out on ?
Originally, when I started designing the adapter plate for the york compressor, I thought of a Search & Rescue type of vehicle I've even got a pneumatic nibbler for those 'trail fixes' haha..
What did you have in mind for places to test it? I've been itching to go test it out on some rocks, or a climb, but I need to inspect the results of my last run in with the rock obstacles... So far, I've got a couple zerts that are in need of an ez out, and a pretty banged up fuel tank skid plate...
Also - Forgot to mention that one of my nerf bars had gotten snagged last time I was up there, and when I arrived at home, I gave it a yank, and ripped it the rest of the way off... no tools required haha... So, I'll hopefully be using some 2.25" DOM .25" wall tubing for some sliders
I wish I knew how to rename this thread... We're way past the engine rebuild lol...
Anyway, figured I'd post up an update..
I've since cut off the front clip / core support off..
Pulled the donor extra cab off the frame..
And I was able to get the rear cab mounts off the donor frame (fairly cleanly)..
Next up: -Pull my bed -build temp mudflaps -strip and pull my cab -strip my frame -apply bedliner -apply more bedliner -make a blood sacrifice to the rust gods so that they stay away from my truck lol -test fit the ex cab -weld on the rear cab mounts
There's way more, but I'll be so freakin happy to get to a driveable state with the extra cab on...
Couldn't sleep, so I figured I'd update this a bit..
Tonight I was over at the Winters' residence helping out James with his project.
Lately, I've made what I consider huge progress. I got the fuel tank moved back just a few inches, and raised up a little bit, but this means that the fill port on the tank clears the cab, and I can now put the bed on!
Look at that, still good inside!
Also, with the fuel tank out, I decided to address the fitment issue. I moved the tank rearward, which meant that I needed to move the cross beam supporting the rear of the tank.
Now, I've got even more clearance, with the bottom of the fuel tank only about 1.5" below the bottom of my frame rails
It's a much better fit, and I'll be able to get the bed on, and use the stock locking fuel door!
ExCabSwap: The wind there looks horrible... Still worth it haha

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
