Ruff Stuff weld on rear LCA mounts!

Nice I want those to but it looks like I will have to remove the gas tank in order to install these on my Runner. Do you have any install pic's?

Very nice electrical work BTW.

Thanks! The LCA mounts are still acting as paperweights on my work bench, so I can't give much more install info yet. I plan on installing them at the same time I do the rest of the welding. Before I do that, I'd like to have my new LCAs as well so I can mount it all up at the same time. Once I get some LCAs and gusseted spindles, I'll post up pictures.

Standard gussets won't fit with my Light Racing UCA's either, that's why I'm having something done that's a little more custom.

total chaos..






Weld-on Spindle Gussets



  • Must have reinforcement for anyone who wants to run hard in the dirt!
  • Strengthens spindle uprights and prevents the knuckle from damage during hard impacts.
  • 1/8" prebent laser cut mild steel brackets.
  • Eliminates the factory sway bar.
  • Welding and grinding are required to install.

Part # 59698

A few updates:

I attached a few cameras to show the 4 inputs on the visor screen. I'm still waiting on some wires before I can do much more though...

One input:

Two Inputs:

Four inputs (yes, I know two are the same):

I've also done some work on the new fuse box. All wired up and ready to plug in the lights, but again, I'm waiting on some wire and some terminals before I can do much more here...

Random update: Things have been busy around here and I'm slowly working on wiring... The real news is that I got a letter from the DMV yesterday and my 20% tint is now legal so I don't have to worry about inspections any more!!

It apparently has been for awhile, but you've got to get a medical exemption to do it. Luckily, my eyes are very light colored and more sensitive to daylight, so my eye doctor had no problem filling the paper work out for me. Once I mailed the paper work in, I had the exemption back in about a week and a half. It's good for five years and you can get it for up to two cars.

Here's a link:

Yup, pretty much. I had a regular eye exam and the optometrist filled the form out for me while I was there. Very simple.
