Default Teal Madness Project Build

As I mentioned in my new member post, I've owned this 1996 Hardbody for many years now. Picked it up when it had less than 100k on it and it was at 133k when i started tearing it down. And why when it ran great? To do a ridiculous build. Some will hate it because it'll be a bit of a mutt.

In summary so far:

- Toyota rear axle - 6 lug with 3.90 ratio and rear disc conversion
- Nissan Titan 17" wheels with conti tires
- 2" front spindle drop
- Z32 4 piston calipers and drilled slotted rotors up front - thanks beebani
- 4 link rear suspension with panhard bar and coil overs - slightly regretting
this instead of going with a 3 link
- The engine and transmission have been procured and that work is starting
next
- I'm not going to reveal it yet but haven't seen it done before
- A hint is it was mentioned on this board some time ago as an alternative
to an SR20DET swap
- Z32 seats - thanks rhode fabrication


I expect it to be fairly ridiculous and will start posting pictures soon.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Just put the bed back on today to adjust the rear ride height before tearing into the front end:



Engine out and will be posted for sale as soon as I get ten post:



Gas tank lay in, needed to be trimmed:


Trimmed and mocked up again, there will be a second crossmember where the bar is laying now:


I didn't have a good shot of the 4 link with the track bar before I put the bed back on but here's one using the stock toyota mounts:

How much are you asking for the engine and transmission?
