    Do you leave the tires on so you can sit in the middle and make "VROOM VROOM" noises? It's ok, my car has been on stands for about 3 weeks now, and after two weeks or so I started doing the same thing =P

    To be honest, no I do not. Nonetheless, I was just cracking a joke. It's obvious you know what you're doing. I wasn't trying to make an ass out of you by any means...

    nope, no back halving
    the S10 notches were made in house with a bandsaw and 2x3 box steel
    and the 4 link was a universal setup from FBI that was setup as a reverse double triangulated
    the S10 also has a standard cab frame with an extended cab so the front of the bed will have to be shortened, it'll be about 3-5 inches of bed infront of the rear wheels

    my friend dumped some cheddar to get the 98 tacoma so there's no way in hell he would back half it
    he's slicing the frame in half and re-boxing it with 2x2 box steel inside the channel
    a lot of cutting to get a taco to lay pinch weld

    well, the front of the frame cutting is complete and the cab lays out on it lovely
    the taco is now laying pinch weld

    the power steering fluid resevoir needs to be sectioned, it hits the hood with the cap on, lol

    do you know any thing about what you are talking about like what wall thickness and so forth tubing he is using
    so what you are telling me is a 2x4x0.187 c chanel is stronger than say a 2x2x0.187 or 0.250 wall square tube you are nuts

    its 2x2 box steel, 1/4" wall, with 1x3 braces between and the frame is plated on both ends

    the 2x2 makes what we cut out look like a tin can piece of shit
