    Can you post the how-to/parts list for the tie rod end links you made? They look like a perfect DIY solution for a quicker disconnect

    Also on the rear shock adapters, did you make these or purchase them?

    where did you get the grill painted? It looks great and was something I wanted to do for my sequoia

    I just rounded up 5/8 heims, bolts, spacer material and All thread. I had to drill out the Factory mounting holes to make room for the larger bolts. I made them long, so I would not have to disconnect, so far, it moves enough that I don't even bother... Not a Rock Crawler. They work really well.

    The adapter are Procomp, I bought them at my local 4wheel parts store. they were like $25

    I painted it myself. Its all about PREP!! Prep well, use a good paint, and it will turn out good.

    Going back in for re- clear. Found out that the single stage paint cannot be cut and buffed without making a dull spot. So, smoothed out the finish, applying 3 coats of Clear, changing the trim color to a flat "trim black" and going with 1" door trim, instead of the factory with chrome stripe. Also, cut my bumpers in prep for my Hybrid Bumpers I am designing. Love doing things twice... But I think I will be much happier with results this time around.

    Excited to be done with all the body work so I can concentrate outfitting for long expeditions.

    You've got a great rig. I really like your rear suspension, what model Bilstein 5100 shocks did you use with the shock adapters ?

    they are super long, you need about 4.5" of lift for them to work proper

    Finally got the paint done! its not perfect, but it gong to stay how it is.... (tired of messing with something I am just going to beat up.. lol)

    Redid entire body with Base/Clear.. used a Gallon of clear...
    Striped and repainted Fender Flares and door handles in Trim Black for a factory flat look
    painted roof Gloss black to simulate Glass - this was just for fun..
    Still need to figure out what I am going to do with the grill, and repaint the badging.

    Also,
    Relocated Panhard
    I like to do things overkill, so I used some receiver tube, Cut a slit in the factory mount all the way to the frame to open it up, then welded the receiver directly to the frame, then rewelded the bracket all the way around inside and out, then added 3/16 plate support. Made it longer so I can drill more holes and adjust if I ever need to.
    This has made a huge improvement to handling.


    Now to figure out what to do with all this RUST!

    That turned out awesome! Looks like it could be a current offering from Toyota themselves.

    Thank you! Tried to make it as OEM as possible, But never again, taking this down to shell was SO much work.

    You did most of it yourself correct? How much money did that save you if you don't mind me asking?

    I did it 100% myself, I took a paint class at Local University. I prob saved 8K, at least.
