Default Toyota Flat Bed "Atomic Toy"

Since I started this whole crawling fad back in the day, I have always wanted a Bruiser cab rig with some sort of caged bed or flat bed. When I got my Hulk Werks prerunner a couple years back, I tried to make a Bruiser cab fit...didnt work. Over the past couple of years I have had other tube rigs, not ever designed for the Hilux cab and also tried to get a Hilux cab over them as well...never happened. Couple months back I saw Spicer18OR rig, and I thought "man that is exactly the type of rig I want" Even cooler was that it was leaf sprung front and rear. Well, when it turned up in the classifieds I PM'd him soon as I saw it when I woke up that AM...there was already 75 views and I was worried it would be gone but luck was with me Sent over the pay pal and here it is now...





And I have for it so far...



Not sure about the Bruiser axles just yet, it has such a nice narrow track width I am not sure how it will look with the slightly added width.

They arent all that wide, probably the same as a high lift axle... I have to get some axle Cs on it and rear straight axle adapters so when i have them out I may slide the Bruisers under it and how it looks.

BTW How do you guys feel about half doors? Like Brandon did here...

Alright Bruiser axles were cool as shit but the I would have to reconfigure the trans to the opposite side of the truck from where it is now... So there out for now... Plus I want to run with this thing without any fear of breaking anything... Ill save the Bruiser axles for down the road on something else or maybe they will make there way back into it at another point...for now I am chopping the front axle up to add the Fat Rock Cs.

Bruiser Axles if they'll fit
One of your awesome interiors

Oh and the icing on the cake Cut the roof off

You could continue the tubework over the gap to make a front cage.

Little Driver Dude inside.

Go on push the envelope

Dare you!

Well after thinking on it all day I decided to actually mount the Bruisers axle...painted them up and went to install them when...







....I found the frame/leaf spacing wasnt the same as the Bruiser perches





Leafs and shackles were all twisted and the suspension was binding like whoa...so it will be a tlt axled rig after all. Cant say I didnt try.

Got the front axle back together, now sporting Fat Rock Cs


Since I was planning on the Bruiser axles working, I swapped the drive train over to the passenger side so the transmission drive shafts would be in-line with the axles... doing this also allowed me to squeeze the interior in as well with a small skid plate drop using some of those awesome TLT spacers



Glass is cut and in...


and Rear is now sporting straight axle adapters.



My plan is to take it to work 2morrow, and during lunch, braze up some sliders (add to whats already there) or at least get the stuff bent and cut into shape

Question for everyone, do you guys think the flex is being limited by having 2 screws holding the High Lift leafs down? Should I maybe run regular juggs and drill out the center pin and use dinky mounts and just one mounting screw?

Thanks
-Mike
