Can you put a tacoma prerunner rear end on a ifs yota??
« on: Jul 28, 2019, 08:57:47 PM »
Just out of curiosity...for now.. If one were so inclined could one replace the stock ifs rear end with a tacoma rear end? For simplicity's  sake, let's say that the IFS truck in question has been converted to 2wd.
Would this be a "easy" way to gain a locker and rear discs all in one go? or is there a  fatal difference in engineering that renders the idea impractical? :think:

work fine. just wire the locker. the load sensing proportioning valve (lspv) might need tweeking though.

I'm not aware of any Tacoma ever having factory rear discs
yes, you can put a taco axle under an 86-95 4runner/truck but it may be wider and some taco diffs have gear ratios that may not match up

You guys are the best, I learn so much. If I bought a whole donor truck for my upcoming 3rz swap I was contemplating retaining the rear end, if it had locker.  I also was revingn an old longin for a long travel front end and was looking fo a way to match the gain in width. If my research is correct, my factory rear is 58" and a 95-2004 tacoma rear is 60.75", that would put me within .25" of matching the 3" gain of a JD fab long travel kit.

Scratch that: I re-read the long travel specs and saw that its 3" gain on both sides. But still would be nice to have a locker

If all your looking for is the locker then get one out of  a late model 4runner or a TRD taco. you would have to grind some notches and add some threaded holes for the two additional studs but It's not too bad.
