Headers with dual exhaust and flowmasters,K&N intake,battery relocated to rear with quick shutoff.Etc. See pages 5 and 6 for updated pics.

Thanks alot for the complement.Its been alot of work building it.Shes all in primer now.And the hard top has been painted and is ready to go.It will be Toyota Tundra Brillant blue.Had a billet gas door flush mounted into the driver side quarter panel.and the quarters if you cant tell are also flush mounted not just slapped on.Have to get a pic of the gauges when I get them in.White faced autometer Phantoms mounted in carbon fiber with large blue Led,s mounted in 194 bulb bases for illumination.They look awesome.

If you look to the bottom right of the under hood pic you will see the hood pin.I made it floating.It is spring loaded and lines up perfectly with the Autofab hood piece and will float if anything moves around at all.Also for my hood prop I welded a rod to a wobbly 3/8ths size.Had a custom aluminum fan shroud built and mounted two Ford Tauraus fans to it. Just to the right of the air filter aluminum shroud (Out of the picture) Is a custom flush mounted fuse panel that has seperate fuses for each fog light. I installed a Ford Ranger heater box with Ac unit.There smaller than the bronco one.Less likely to get hit by tire.But plan to change that to a custom built aluminum unit that a friend of mine builds from scratch.Looks cool and clean.

I'd love to see the ac box set up. I went through 2 boxes on my 90. I'll be doing things different this time around!

In the front we welded a 2x2 by 1/4 wall square tube and cut the frame at a angle.And then welded a 2x4x3/16ths tube directly in front of the powersteering unit for added strenght.As well as welding the whole crossmember under the engine so as to not just rely on the factory rivets.We built our own four inch drop brackets for the TTB beams that are hella stout and braced where possible.Instead of using weaker superlifts or rancho.The radius arms are hella stout too. .180 wall dom main tubes with .120 wall support tubes with threaded ends in arm for future heim ends and custom brackets.The front fenders dont look like they fit that well in the pics but they have been worked over at the body shop to fit like a GLOVE now.Also FYI the front bumper has two tubes that go through the grille and tie into the engine cage.With a 6061 aluminum skid plate on ER for a dreaded and hopefully never nose dive landing.

The Ranger heater/ac box didnt line up perfectly with the firewall holes.But I just had to make a small plate to block off what wasnt covered.Should still work fine until I have a custom unit built.
