Picked up these bad boys for $200 out the door. Was fully expecting (and kinda hoping) I'd have to pull myself, but they were already on the shelf. From an 07 FJ. Completely forgot about the other things I was wanting to get because these came with some unexpected goodies. Mirrors were really just for the thrill of the junkyard experience since there are cheap ones online, but one more OEM CV axle would be nice so I have a complete pair of replacement axles

For $200 out the door I got
  • 2 spindles with zero rust
  • 2 wheel bearings (which I'd just keep as oh shit spares, but they are in good condition)
  • 2 dust shields in mint condition (not sure if 319 or 338mm shields, but 338 would be cool if I ever upgraded to the larger size)
  • 2 wheel speed sensors and wiring harnesses
  • All the brake line brackets with no rust
  • 2 halves of a sway bar link lol

I then bought the JD fab spindle gussets to weld on



My 4xInnovation sliders also showed up, so gotta find time to buzz those on


Still have a little backlog of stuff to type up:
  • Suspension Writeup - half done and I haven't touched it in weeks
  • Trim rear cover and type what I did to fit the 35x10.5s
  • Poor Eagle Jack mod to HF 1.5ton

I thought about it, but I don't know if I'm quite to that level yet. I'm also not a fan of heims on a daily driver because ball joints are just easier to maintain lol.

Worst comes to worst, I could retrofit it afterwards, since the double shear tab is a separate piece. Although I have heard its harder to drill once the spindles have been welded on

I have TC gussets and have been considering the kit. My rig already sounds like a cabinet full of pots and pans going down the road anyway lol.

Pretty much haven't done anything to the 4runner recently. I've got an extra day off this weekend, so maybe I'll get to the sliders or spindle gussets, but probably going to take it easy. School, work, and band all together has been kicking my butt this past week.

Also this is the 200th post on my build thread yay

Might have mentioned, I started driving the bus for the local town and this is really one of my favorite jobs ever. These are technically transit coaches, but their primary function is to be the "school bus" for the neighboring apartments to VT. Something about it is just so much fun

The bendy bus! These are really interesting, since it doesn't drive like a regular trailer. Behaves much different, but its not very difficult to drive, which I believe is due to the center joint (essentially the hitch) being so far behind the rear axle of the front section vs how towing with a truck or suv would be. I think they're almost easier to drive than the 40' straight buses


The not so bendies: a 40' and 35' pictured here.


Heres a full stuff (bus knelt) on a 305/70r22.5, essentially a 40x12" tire. Wheel wells are absolutely massive for these bad boys (note: someone else lightly curbed this tire, not me lol)

I just wanted to drop in and say thank you for your awesome detailed how-to posts, they are great. My main ride is a 2016 taco so I'm usually over on tacomaworld, but decided to make an account here since I've been reading all your how-to posts... I'm rehabbing my old clapped out 2003 4runner and redoing the suspension, changed out the CVs etc right now, it's quite the rabbit hole lol. Your posts are super helpful!

Thats awesome, thanks for checking them out! Hopefully they're helpful, and of course, let me know if you have any questions. I meant to get on my suspension writeup since I installed that a few months ago, but just haven't had the time to get it finalized with school.

I've been spending some time on my local area TacomaWorld threads, so I'm over there too occasionally haha. I actually think I have more TW posts now than here, but most of them are BSing with friends

haha yep these buses are on air bags, and they can kneel to allow easier boarding for passengers. So I guess when unkneeling, they're lifting. The last two pics of "full stuff" was the bus knelt as joke about stuffing 40" tires haha

recently drove the full electric bendy bus. It has 2 drive axles (vs conventional diesel bendy has only 1), so I guess that makes it 4wd. In a 3hr shift, it only lost 10% charge, which means the batteries have to be massive!

Got some work done on my sliders. All the legs are assembled, minus the gussets since it got dark on me the weekend I work on those. This weekend I got one pretty much all the way welded up. Plan is to weld the other whenever I can, then prepaint everything but the area to be welded to the frame, then weld it all to the frame and finish up the painting

I'll make an actual full post when its done, but wanted to drop some updates since I haven't been on here in a hot minute
