You will need to notch the housing, but why? It'll be better to run the hp third with a selectable than swap it to a standard pinion.

Without a noticeable amount of play in the driveline, that may not be your issue, though the loud ting does indicate the u-joints are worn and should be replaced.

No need to put it in 4wd, the front driveline wont be causing any vibrations at speed, unless you have the hubs locked.  Are your front hubs engaged?  If they are engaged, that could cause vibrations, though that is usually when you have an auto-locker in the front.  My '91 with a detroit in the front does something similar to what you are experiencing, but an open diff shouldn't.

If you can, put the rear on a floor jack or jack stands, and rotate the wheels and see if you can hear or see any unusual movement.  If nothing noticeable, with the rear axle on jack stands, have someone start it up and put it in gear, have them run it up to 2nd/3rd gear and see what you hear or see.

Also take a good look at the tires, a tread separation can cause vibrations and noise, often not going away at certain speeds like an out of balance tire can.

Today's progress.

Spoke to local glazing supplier and he can get all the glass, which is reassuring.
He even suggested that there may still be some heated screens available but I would have to do more digging as he sold them all to one guy.

Been looking into high clearance fiberglass fenders and the only ones i can find that i like are from Toyota Fiberglass, who I have contacted and am waiting for a reply from.

Cant find the pink slip but then my office is a shithole. I also thought I had a steering wheel boss but cant find that either.

I definitely hear a loud “ting” when I first take off in forward or reverse

Basically, just crawl under there and see how much play there is in the driveline.  If any up-dow, side-to-side, means they need to be replaced.  The only movement should be when twisting it, and that amount should be slight, as it is just the slack in the trans gear.

I climbed under my truck this morning and I couldn’t feel any driveline play. Do I need to put it in 4wd to check the front driveline?

Hey guys can I swap a rear TRD E-Locker 8” dif into a landcruiser 80 series front diff non locked axle?
If so What’s the modifications and changes, necessary do you still need reverse cut gears and does the LC axle housing need to be notched and tapped?

Same here.  security cameras and other measures.  But I know MS13 is in Hawaii.  As is Yakuza(actually don't bother most people not in the "business").
 lots of meth heads though.

Sound's like it is the driveline or a bearing issue in the rear axle.  If you can put the rear up on a jack, and spin the tires, and see what you hear/see.  Also, see what amount of play you have in the driveline, shouldn't be any up or down movement, and 9nly slight when turning it, about an 1/8".

Before the vibes started, had you noticed a ting sound, like a wrench smacking a pipe, when taking off, backing up.  The sound is an early warning that the u-joints are starting to go.

Actually yes I had heard a clunk sound over the past few weeks when backing up and starting forward . Then last week I heard a rattle in my exhaust. This week it is the vibration. I bet it’s the u-joints. How do I check?
