I have an FJ80 E-Locked front axle, I do have the chance to trade it for A Ford high pinion Dana 60. :D

I was wanting some input on what axle to put under a tacoma truck. I plan on buying a tacoma 96-04, and it is going to be my daily driver.
Oh, and I do have a dana 70 rear, 65 wms sitting in my garage already.

I`m leaning more towards the dana 60 HP Ford, it does sound easier to do.

How much are you looking at getting for the 80 axle? Any idea what gears are in it?

I am going to go against the grain on this one. Use the axle you have already...dana 60's are getting harder and harder for the rest of us to find.:D

Okay, I'll go along go with the 60

$1,400, 4:10`s, it is complete hub to hub, tie rod, and it is the ABS axle, if you make custom arms, you have a third hole on top to mount another pin or tap it for a stud. That is the way OTT industies use to do it when they made a hysteer kit for the fj80 axle, but they don`t make the arms anymore.

If you go FJ 80 talk to Slees off road, they are doing a new highsteer setup that doesn't require the tapping of the ABS hole. THey use the two existing bolts and add a dowel pin I think.

According to Slee:
"Here are some pictures of the 80 series high steer arms
we made. These use the two factory upper trunion bearing holes and a sheer style "bung" is welded into the ABS whole for a third bolt (no machining necessary). They are made with a whole for a 5/8" bolt that lines up with the original steering arm on the bottom of the knuckle for a double sheer design. They can be used with our without the lower arms although we have not tested them without the lower arms. We have a few sets in stock on the shelf."

Cruiser Outfitters will flip the axle for you to driver side drop.

Thanks for the info. I wouldn`t flip it, I would just order an atlas :D for it, and rework my exhaust. Or add a daul case Marlin pass side. :D
