What brake lines do you need? I have a pair that's the 10mm Flare on one end, and a 3/8(10mm) banjo on the other end. 28" long.

If you're going to use Tacoma Calipers, they'll work great. You can also use them for the tundra calipers. I also have the banjo bolts and the copper washers. Everything is new, enver been used

Thanks for the offer, i'll keep it in mind. I honestly couldnt tell you what brake lines i need yet, aside from just need longer factory lines, I'm going to reuse my tacoma brake calipers for sure, but as to the length of the lines i need, i just dont know yet.

They'll work if you're around 24" frame height on 35's

I traded my flat pitman arm for a 3/4 drop arm last week. We shall see how long this lasts before i want my flat pitman arm back. But i figure this way, i can relieve the steering shaft angle when the time comes to set that up and also have the ability to throw a stock pitman arm on in a pinch.

I have this weird idea that keeping things to a simple and easy level of difficulty to replace, so i'm not hunting for a one-off custom part at the ma and pa's local mini-mart.

So I updated my list once again.

I have since bought a 4runner E-Locker rear axle with 4.10s. My plans have changed slightly in that i'll run 4.10s and my awesome 32's for a bit longer. Basically adding a step in the process. I'm going to run the stock open 4.10 diff in the front, or get an E-Locker right away for the front as well. Regardless it will have E-lockers front and rear with 5.29s. but I'm just adding a step to the process.

I also ordered the TG tacoma shackle kit. I'm commited now and hoping that my mathz are correct.

I also removed the gears and setup kits from the overall total price, since those are now being sold and not part of the build anymore.

Just picked up a front housing w/ E-locker installed and Sky motor guard. I have axles coming to me in the mail from another TTORA member (thanks!) Now I need to buy outer knuckles and start building!

Pictures added to original post of front and rear axle.

Good luck with your swap... I have zero regrets with the yota axle and I'm sure you will feel the same way when it's all said and done!

So I bought an IFS rear axle housing and soem rebuild parts to house my rear e-locker diff, which will narrow up my overall WMS to WMS, but match the front toy axle with IFS hubs nicely. No need for spacers to match the rear axle width. I have built the front differential, but not really any progress has been made since then.

Don't use an ifs housing no sense in making it skinnier. Also I wouldn't use a factory toy housing on a sas. They are way to narrow, leafs might be of but with links you will more than likely have to clearance the frame to make the coil overs fit. Then again if you link it just cut the front rails off and build new rails. Look into ruffstuff or some of the other company's that manufacture toy housings, with the exception of trail gear.


alove0750 is a buddy of mine and he still wishes he went with either a custom housing or 80 axles. Heres a link to his build which might help. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st...xle-3link.html

I'm going back and forth still on the IFS rear housing, I may give it to my dad for his truck. I'd rather rebuild the rear and toss it in.

I have started to build the front end, I'm finding a few parts I don't need and a few that i'm missing. I'm going to buy a set of taco rotors even though I have some on my truck currently. That way I can clearance the rotors for the wheel hubs without disturbing my truck in it's current state...which is running...

Very slow progress as of late. But I installed new lug studs and started to assemble the wheel hubs. Bearing races pressed in. Need grease now!

Plans have changed, anything in the list at the start of the thread is for sale, along with the truck.

PM me for details and pics of parts. I will let you know current asking price of the parts at that time.

Also the Truck is for sale.
