MasterYota's fleet

Post by MasterYota on Thu Feb 21, 2013 5:54 am

My main ride is a '91 Toyota pickup (Yota). Its got just about every mod under the sun, short of throwing chromoly parts at it. I'll splurge on the chromo's when I start breaking parts...

3.0L V6, R150 Trans - Stock
Dual Tcases using AA and Marlin Adapters, 2.28:1 in both
Twin Stick
4.88's with spool rear and locrite upfront
Rear disc's
Tcase mounted parking brake
Swampers and bead locks
10k winch
custom bed
Rock rails and lower exo



My family hauler is a '93 Toyota Landcruiser FZJ80 (Marvin)
4.5L I6, Auto, fulltime 4wd
4" OME lift, with Slee Castor correction plates
Factory Elockers at both ends
CDL mod
Custom storage drawers in the rear
Custom tube bumper front
35" Procomps
9.5K winch
Full Leather...



My new favorite is a 1953 M37 (the M). Sporting full custom everything, its still a work in progress, but I'm solving the problems as they come up, and there aren't many...

'69 Ford 428CJ,
NP435, D20 into divorced NP205
1350 Driveline
Corporate 14bolt rear, 4.56, Spool, Disc brakes
Dana 60 Front, 4.56, Detroit, Histeer, chromoly stubs.
Custom front suspension, Stock rear suspension
Propane fogged
39" Michelins/ 39.5 Swampers on H1 double bead locks
Hard top/soft top
17.5k winch


I've got 20 some-odd other vehicles stored all over the place, so stay tuned for other projects... king

Here's a better shot of the M37, at least it not in the garage!

No pictures but I did make my first repair of the season to the FZJ80 this afternoon. The air tube between the throttle body and the MAF had split on me last year (apparently its a common issue) causing the engine to stall when it was put in reverse. Two hose clamps and piece of 3" dia. x 4" long exhaust pipe and it was sleeved and back together. This means I can drive it out of the snow bank sometime next week after I get a battery back in it. Then its on to ordering some new birfs and looking at a permanent knuckle fix so that they don't come off anymore at inconvenient times...

For the same price as slee offroads arms you get the knuckles and six stud high steer arms.

The hellfire setup is vastly superior to Slee's setup. The hard part is getting ahold of Billy-bob to order a set... Do you know if he's got a website anymore, or just taking sales strictly from Pirate 4x4?

I finally got around to installing the new doubler crossmember from BCC for the '91 Yota. I'd had the wrong crossmember in there for years, this new one gives me about an inch more breakover clearance, and angles the drivline up a little better.

The next job is the ISR mod, which removes the intake silencer, and 90% of the air ducting from under the hood.

ISR mod is now complete, truck seems to breath easier. I don't know if it makes any more power, but the power it does have, it seems to make faster, and with better throttle response...

Now on to the new (to me) seats. My old seat was pretty much flattened out and unsupportive. The newer seats should be much better.

Nothing picture worthy about some used grey cloth seats, but they are sure comfy!

I started tearing down the new Taco rear end for the 'yota tonight. With any luck, it should be mostly stripped apart by tomorrow if it doesn't fight me too much... I'll post some pictures if I remember to take any.

Rear Elocker upgrade has officially begun... Very Happy

I've also managed to (tentatively) get my hands on some new drivetrain parts for the M37, so stay tuned for the winter upgrade!

All the needed drivetrain parts for the M37 upgrade have been acquired, save for one small adapter. I'll start a new post highlighting build and modification that's coming...
