Possible New Project
« on: Jun 03, 2020, 05:08:05 PM »
Hey everyone itís been awhile since Iíve posted on here but I am in the process of possibly starting a new project. Basically I am inheriting a 2001 Tacoma 2wd 2rz with under 60,000 miles. The truck is in amazing shape my grandfather bought the truck brand new and used very little. The route Iím looking at is a trans/tcase swap along with a sas. Thinking of going W56 and mini truck transfer cases with a 79-85 front axle. I know this isnít the most popular setup but I know Iím fully capable of doing the work and it come out really nice. Yes the front axle is a little narrow but with ifs hubs and properly backspaced wheels it should be totally doable. Rear axle would be a ifs and probably 35-37Ē tires. Essentially a basic 79-95 build just on a 2wd Tacoma frame and body. I see no problems here and just looking for some opinions/advise on the matter. I know it has been done plenty of times and Iím fully capable of performing the work/fabbing.

The new project sounds exciting, but doing a frame off resto on your 1st Gen would be a better project. :thumbs:

why not do a rock assault front axle? They come with shafts for under a grand. I run one on my 4runner https://trail-gear.com/catalog/product/view/id/7170/s/rock-assault-true-width-tacoma-front-axle-housing/category/58/

Not a fan of the tg housings and tying to keep cost down. I was thinking ruff stuff or diamond but itís just out of my price range right now
