Just wanted to say hello to all the fellow members out there. I just bought the 2005 Tacoma-V6-5 speed auto with the SR5 #8 package. I am quite happy with it! My other vehicles are a 1969 Toyota Fj40 (more Chevrolet than Toyota now ) 1993 Mazda RX-7 with BPU- pushing around 330rwhp, and a 1992 Mercedes 190E. -Overkill

didja keep the cruiser axles, xfer case and tranny? or didja ditch the birfs for some full widths?

Boheefus
The axles are one of the few OEM parts I still have on the FJ. Almost everything else has been changed out. 350 Chevy, SM 420 Tranny (7 to 1 granny), Saginaw Power steering, Shackle reversal, BTB four wheel disc brake kit( yet to be installed ), 4" Skyjacker springs,Rancho 9000 shocks, 35" BF Goodrich Mud terrains on Mickey Thompson classics, new Painless wire harness and lots more that I cannot remember off hand. It was to be my hunting rig, but lost interest and time in the project and will be selling it soon.
