I thought i should start a build thread now that I finally did something, so here it goes.
Huge thanks to Dylan(Deluxxx,) Eric(Relentlesstaco,) and tyler(85yota) for helping me with the swap and an even bigger thanks to Eric for letting me borrow the Relentless shop for a weekend.

Looking good so far.

Thanks! Yup that was me. If you need stuff like hanger and shackles and shock tabs for your swap let me know. Eric (Relentlesstaco) could cut it all custom for you. Way beefier than trail queer or even marlin

Really? Cool thanks man! That would be awesome... I'd rather keep my money at a shop here instead of ordering online anyways. I'm going to build my front hanger hopefully this week, but if he can cut out some shackles and mounts for the rear that would be awesome.

But trail gear will be CHEAPER AND HAVE WARRANTY!

I tried to do the alignment today but couldn't get it drive able yet. Got death wobble super bad. Not sure what to do to remedy that bit I gotta come up with something

Looks awesome, Kolt. I bet you're stoked. I hope you get that DW figured out soon.

Got death wobble taken care of, looks like it was caused by bent rim, no sleeve in bushings and too much toe in. Drive it to sparks today with no problems so I think I've gotten in fixed. Need to relocate steering box and do something with rear to get it wheeling. But I'm close

So drove it around town all day today with no shocks. A little bouncy but death wobble hasn't came back so I think I've taken care of it. Getting some lift springs for the rear, not digging the prerunner look

Went and picked up some more parts today. Lift springs for rear, 5.29 LSD v6 3rd and a cv driveline. Gunna try to weld up the LSD and get it to a true locker
