Here's the new one next to the old one.

And i'm the first to admit the proportions of the one on the Left are a lot better than the old one.

Thanks to the People who mentioned it you know who you are
I'm all for critiscim i can take it . I find it's how you get better at doing stuff.
thanks
Neil

Hmm where's that one coming from . This keeps getting better I just hope my Hilux looks half as good once it finished. I might have to make my own 4Runner to tow it around with as well . Also what width I-beam are you using for the new jack??

Hey- Just wanted to say, that your 4-Runner is coming along BAD-ASS..!!! Sweet build..!! My dad actually had an 84' with that EXACT same gold paint scheme ( also had the OEM "scallop' stickers too)... Damn,I miss that truck..! Anyways, I also 100% agree, that your Hi-Lift Jack #2 looks WAY better than the first..! The thinner they are, the more realistic they look.. Heres one I made from flat styrene as well..!! All in all, you've built an AWESOME rig..!
