yes but the problem is that they are just that, aftermarket!  If you wann put a full floater in your fj80 no problem they came stock, here itll cost you $1000!  Want a 90's era truck with a diesal and a straight axle, easy go buy one.  But you are right we do have a killer aftermarket for yota parts, thanks to the efforts of Marlin and a lot of others.

You need to post up some wheeling pictures from your area too, we would like to see them.

You could also start a 17 page thread (soon to be 18) on your build up :yupyup:
