Repainted bottom coils where I had sandblasted


Sewed some limit straps from 850 seat belts. Tex 105 should be fine


Only had 3 anchors, so one limit strap loops around the long spacer on the shock. I added some bartacks for extra strength.


Axle going in


Full articulation

Default rear axle !!!

Hey I've heard about the dana lock form the 740 s and 940 s fit into the 240 rear end pumpking housing, Right or wrong?
I see you lost the rear right reverse cover on the tail. I am doing a used and new tails in mine plus a million things.
Looking good in your project. Mine is coming along well after almost 12 days in a row working weekends and afternoons
Take care

I think you're right, there's been several how-tos on swapping to a g80. I chose the trutrac.

I have the tail light cover, just removed it because it was loose, and needed regluing. It's back on there now.

Nice work. Looking forward to seeing it all properly lifted. If I could convince the Mrs. I'd ditch the Tacoma for a lifted 245 or 965.

Casualties so far include a sticky EGR valve (will delete soon) and frozen water supply. I didn't realize how much 8200 ft elevation affected baseline intake vacuum measurements too. Normally idles at 20 in Hg in Texas, that turns into 14 in Hg at 8200 ft. Tires inflate more too... had to let some air out to get better traction. Despite a weird whine while turning & coasting, the truetrac seems to be doing it's thing.

Driving uphill (7% grade) @ 11,000+ ft really pushes the b230f to the limits.
Intermittent starting issue now... sometimes I'll get no response when I go to start, no click or anything. Sometimes it'll turn over, and right as it's about to catch, it stops. Seems like a failing starter to me. I've already jumped the neutral safety switch, it's not the problem. Swapped computers too, no dice. Right now the solution is just to wait, then it starts right up. Hope I don't have any chewed up flywheel teeth
