      Welcome!

      looks great.

      So it’s a Sammy on an fj80 frame? Or are you building 2 trucks?

        Yes, it is a Sammy with an FJ80 frame and axles. The FJ80 was already missing to many parts to save when I got it.

          Sweet!
          sounds like a great build. It’s going to be a rocket in a Sammy!!

              I rotated the DOC flange to make some more room for the driveshaft

                Looks good. I have removed the flange as well and just went to tube with a slip clamp. How much room do you have between the driveshaft now?

                  About an 1 1/2” of clearance with the suspension sitting on the bump stops

                      I was interrupted by a two week vacation but I did do some work on tube fenders before we left.

                        Vacation is a must.

                        i am interested to see how it runs with a light truck like this.

                          I finished up the exhaust, a samurai in not intended to have 2 1/2” exhaust, it took a bunch of offsets to get it to fit.

                              6l80 origami, I thought I would have room to add a cup holder in the new tunnel. I think that ship has sailed.
