    Allo, I'm going to do my best to keep updating the process on my build, but here is my rn12 71 hilux.
    Here's a breakdown on what will be happening:
    3SGE Beams/6speed swap
    4 lug conversion
    Paralleled 4 link with a watts
    86 corolla gts front subframe
    ford 8.8 rear end, cut, narrowed, tig'd
    coiovers front and rear
    + minor things such as wire tuck, fuel tank relocation, etc.
    Here are some pictures from the beginning, to where im at now.

    This is where the truck sits for now, the build will be slow because of work and a 4 month old, but itll eventually get to the point i want it. This will be another awesome build built by us, the Grind House family. None of this would be possible without the help, support, and knowledge from my kuya Jerry. STAY TUNED! :headbang:
