I definately don't advise running 37's with IFS. Just go SAS.

this is what i'm leaning towards...the SAS that is. is there anywhere that sells a complete SAS kit? i know that's an expensive, but easy way to go...but i'm just wantin to get questions answered before i make a big investment

with 35's its pushing the limits with IFS, anything over that and your CV's will scream. SAS is your best bet.

Call Brian at Diamond axle, he can build you your axle complete and ready to bolt on, and about 95% of everything else he can supply you with too, he can tell you what you will need to get yourself because of what he don't have and then you'll be ready to start spending/saving.

Truck specs:2001 D-cab Taco with solid axle conversion, front and rear 65" wide Diamond axles, Tundra 8 inch rear w/ARB, H.P. front w/ARB 30 spline Long's, full floating rear from FROR and blah blah blah, IE lots-a cool stuff.

both company's are owned by the same person/people, just seperated due to the axles not being toyota related from my understanding, and the rest of front range is toyota related

just a POS buggy

What Zac said, Diamond axle is set up separate from FROR so as not to scare away people who don't own Toyotas but want an axle.

Truck specs:2001 D-cab Taco with solid axle conversion, front and rear 65" wide Diamond axles, Tundra 8 inch rear w/ARB, H.P. front w/ARB 30 spline Long's, full floating rear from FROR and blah blah blah, IE lots-a cool stuff.
