I know! :p (Actually they're free if you lend your welder out to CLOSE friends and thats how they pay you for borrowing it!:D)

I'm thinking I'll start early next year. I actually emailed TG to see when they're planning to sell the rear SAS shackle hangers apart from the kit, they said in a couple months, which is fine. I'm still gathering parts and deciding on some things. Like whether or not to buy the trans./t-case adapter for my W59 trans or buy a W56 trans and use the money saved for a dual-case adapter instead.

Haha, true. Or if you work for company that deals with alot of steel, especially scrap metal... Free use of welder (perk of working there) and well they don't need scrap :D

Anyway... It's hard playing the hurry up and wait game. I waited almost over a year. I was committed to paying the money, and taking the time to work on it.. Then 3 months later after research I bought some parts.. with in 2 months I purchased the majority of my parts, and 4 months ago I bought the rest of the parts. Then came the :saw: :welder:.. Now after 2 months... It's still driving.. Even with fucked up front end :)

what is he sasing? i think im gonna buy all-pros kit and then just run chevy 63s in the rear. i already picked up 35s, so all i need is an axle really. but im gonna go with gears and lockers, most likely arb's and all that good stuff, so i imagine it will be somewhere in the 2500-3000 range.

a tacoma. there alot more involved than a pre 95. 95 and older have the same frame as a factory solid axle truck and basically everything is the same other than the front suspension so its just weld on the perches and bolt most the other stuff on. basically

All depends on how you build the truck... $2k-5k.

Also are you doing the work yourself? It'll save alot of money, basically free right Boonie :flipoff4:

You bet! :flipoff4: :D

Just price out some of the stuff from the list above, minus what you don't need. For an '80s-90s IFS truck it's going to be cheaper because you don't need to swap drivetrain parts/difference side. Building brackets yourself saves a ton in places. Sometimes it is cheaper to get the "kit" pieces. I would personally get the rear "through the frame" shackle hanger kits from Trail-Gear or Marlin Crawler maybe.

Boonie Buster. I may be confused but, looking at your parts list it looks as if you are going to run ifs hub lock outs with your ifs 4x4 hubs???? The front range kit requires IFS 4x4 hubs to be turned down and then you use straight axle hub lockouts. I also believe you do not need your backing plate eliminators because the tacoma brake mounting kit takes their width into consideration. I am in the middle of the the same swap on my 97. Good luck!

I don't listen to FROR. ;) :p Reason being is I have some Warn hubs (what came on the axle i have to use ) that i'll use for the time being. The IFS hubs come into play a little later. Longfield sells inner hub gears so you can use them.

I hadn't thought about this, i'll look into it though. But FROR made no mention of this taking the place of the brake backing plate. One can only assume that if you're just putting the taco brake plates on that you still have the stock brake plates and would reuse them. BUT i have neither heard yes or no to this. Do you know? :confused:

You still need to use the eliminator plate with the FROR kit. The plate sets the location of the seal at the hub body.

I did not use the backing plate eliminators and it seals fine. Talked to Brian and he said not to use them. I measured the thickness of the eliminators I have, and it will seal either with or without them. I guess it really does not matter if you use them or not.:)
