Adam (Rockweiser) just picked up my rear axle from Dallas. He was headed up there for the ufc fight anyway so it made sense.
Its from a 2002 Tundra, unknown mileage. Was only replaced because of a leaky pinion and axle tube seal.
I will end up putting my 8.4 3rd in this. I'll also use my brake backing plates with the tundra shafts so I can keep the e-brake cable up above the leaf springs.

It's a little dirty but that's not a big deal.

Picked it up for $120 and I owe my friend $45 for gas. Not bad in my opinion.

I like the extra width you went with..I kinda wish mine was that wide for the extra stability instead of 60/62 that I am now. You going to run a high backspace wheel to keep the scrub radius at a minimum?

For the time being in keeping my 3.75 BS wheels. I will probably go with tundra front brakes later on, so I'll keep that in mind if/ when I replace the wheels. If so I suppose the most I'll end up at is 4.5.

Biggest these axles will see are 40's. I swear. :D

yea, that's what Pepe said :p

with your reg cab you should be able to run 37s w/o problems...less weight than the larger Tacos. Past that on yota axles/diffs and you are just asking for carnage.
want 40s? go 1-tons or don't even bother.

Yeah. Tell that to Jason who's been running 39's for a couple years without problem.

Probably worse. It's not my daily. I'm sure I'm on borrowed time with 39 reds. No ring and pinion breakages just a t case out put. If I can get a away with more than a year or so I'm fine with it. Wish I would have gone tons to begin with though.

looks like you've pretty much stripped the extra weight off that thing as well...makes a big difference. My truck weighs just over 5k# :p
There are a lot of older Yota trucks out there on 40s that get flogged hard...and have little in the way of issues.

how do you like your Spyderlock wheels? so far mine are holding up well.

I was a little confused at first. However, since I could see what was happening I just went for it. Brian didn't pick up when I called, anyway.

I was around 4200. I'm anxious to see how much it changes when I'm done.

Ugh. I know I need new rims. I'm not sure that I'll go with Beadlocks first off.
