Nice progress, as far as a big v8 in little truck sounds like an awesome idea but would need some fab work and new coil springs up front to support the weight

I’ve noticed that driver side long bed pics of the M-MAX don’t really exist. In talking with the fine chaps at Notch, they say modding is necessary to the driver side rear flare to accommodate the fue

I feel like I’m watching paint dry but thanks. At least I’m staying interested. I’m going to get the truck running and moving with the 4.0 liter and slow build the 427 and do it right. Found some weld in motor mounts from TRD (no affiliation with Toyota) and yes much beefier springs up front for sure and probably some frame strengtheners from TNT.

Took off the front bumper and just had to get an idea how the JCR front bumper looks😍. Going to have to do some cutting to get it to fit correctly. It’s Stingray and linexed along with the rock sliders fenders and rear bumper. Also just got my Baja Design work light flush mounts for the rear bumper. They fit but they don’t. Gonna have to do a bit of fabbing but I’m sure I would have with Rigids or KC’s too.

They both need to come back off for repaint and some clean up. That was just a quick throw paint on them to keep them from rusting. The trucks been sidelined for a while while we bought a house and sorted a bunch of ither things oute4787756cdb6e42fd8a0ade8e8778839.jpg8f6fa9f4f14178fa2daf45d2f64ba919.jpg
