Hi guys, new member here. Picked up an 86 trooper a few months back and was slowly fixing bushings and motor leaks when the engine tossed a rod. I'm in the process of swapping in a 13bt Toyota engine and auto trans, along with doing a sas with the Cruiser axles as well.. will be selling some trooper specific stuff here shortly from the c223t engine and drivetrain. Along with front ifs suspension components. Thanks for looking!
Rear spring mounts are tacked on the frame, and I fabricated a pair of front hangers last night to try out. I'm noticing my springs are a few inches shorter then the rear trooper springs people seem to use a lot.
I build a ton of **** that just doesn't work out haha.. you just have to try stuff until you like it at first. Eventually you get more of a fabrication sense for what's going to look good and function properly.. having welders at home saves me tons of time. This is the first project im actually not working on at home right now. I will take it home when it's closer to the plumbing and wiring portion of the project. But fabrication type stuff im going to be doing at work since the equipment here speeds up the process tremendously.
