Boobie

Mike’s most recent project is a 1985 4Runner. He acquired this 4Runner from a friend in the “Homegrown Crew.” This rig accidentally got its name, “Boobie,” when Mike was talking about his last 4Runner “Ruby.” He tried saying something about it being a blue “Ruby,” but instead it came out as “Boobie.” In a shop […]

Rob’s Truggy

When Rob brought us his 4Runner, it was pretty cool to begin with. It sat on Toyota axles, 40″ Super Swamper tires, dual t-cases, 22RE motor with W56 transmission, lockers front & rear, Alcan leafsprings all the way around, long travel shocks, crossover steering with hyrdo assist and a Budbuilt cross-member (to name some things). […]

Wrdette

This truck started off as an ’82 Toyota Mini truck with a Chevy 350 motor and a turbo 350 tranny. With 5″ leaf springs, lift shackles, and a 3″ body lift to clear the 38″ tires, it looked sweet but didn’t have the qualities of a rock crawler that Wrd wanted. The rear end was […]

OPJ

How do we at ORS get some of our more heavily modified rigs to the trails? After seeing the Transformers, we came up with a name for our ’93 Dodge 5.9L Cummins Turbo Diesel: Optimus Prime Jr. With a 48″ frame extension and a custom fabbed diamond plate flatbed, this behemoth of a truck commands […]


5VZ-FE Swap
Sunday 18 February, 2007

5VZ-FE Swap

Since age 13 Rob’s stepdaughter had always wanted an ’85 4runner. What better gift than to receive such a vehicle with the power and reliability of the more advanced 5VZ-FE 3.4L V-6? When we got it, the Runner looked like any other, standing out by only a few inches of lift and some 35 inch […]


Brian's Pickup

Brian’s Pickup

One of our latest projects is a custom suspension and frame on a ’92 standard cab pickup. 17″ Bilstein coil overs were used in conjunction with a custom built 3-link set up. Due to set up constraints, the rear half of the frame was removed and replaced with custom D.O.M. tubing frame rails. The factory […]

Baby

Shop owner Mike Caskey rolled his ’85 4Runner and needed a new truck. In comes “Baby,” a ‘92 4Runner. This ‘92 4Runner was built for hard-core rockcrawling and received the full meal deal. Upgrades include a 3.4 liter Tacoma motor, custom 4-link suspension front and rear, swaybar, 17″ travel Bilstein coil overs, custom front FJ80 […]
