Looks good, and looks like it will be a hell of a crawler! You use Toyota 8" axles, or samari axles under it?

are you trying to run with the 79-85 Toy steering (push/pull), or did you switch to the IFS steering (side to side)components?

I eat hondas for breakfast lunch and dinner - subaru. :rolleyes: and i plan to also help turn those tires on gears. i have 4.11s in the axles and i can just use my hi 4 wheel drive on teh dual range. im hoping that will at least move me. it should. but then again i dont plan on going on the free way this is strickly off road.
