Toyota UHaul trucks - parts compatibility
« on: Apr 19, 2008, 08:05:11 PM »
Me and a friend have been looking around junkyards for V6 4X4 IFS brake calipers to do the vented rotor swap on our solid axles. The only thing we've found so far is 2 UHaul trucks.

Will the calipers off these 1 ton trucks work the same? They are V6 trucks, but they are 2WD, but we figured since they are 1 ton trucks, they might be the same as the 4X4 ones.

Anyone know?  :dunno: :headscratch:

Nope the calipers are totally different between teh 2x's and 4x's.  But the rear axles are the shiat for using on a mini truck!  They are full floaters that use the same wheel bearings as a standard 4x front hub.  So all you have to do is swap the big 6 hubs out for some mini truck hubs and space the axle shaft about 3/4".  Then make a bracket to hold the caliper and there you have it a factory full floater rear.  Your 3rd will swap right into it too. :gap:

Thanks for the info.  :beerchug: Yeah, I knew those FF rears were cool, I just wasn't sure what you could do with them.

I might could hook you up with some ifs calipers for a price on that dualie rear.  :yumyum:

I checked, they want $500 for the rearend. The place is pretty cool though, so if you pulled it yourself and talked nice, you might could get it for $350-400. They have 2 complete trucks, and they have all 4 tires on them.

Those full float rears would be cool. Hopefully they arent going anywhere any time soon, couse I'm not really ready to get one. I still havent broke any of the ifs rear axles yet.  :driving: I'll try harder.  :hammerhead:

I have a wheeling buddy who is a district manager for Oreilys. I can prolly get them calipers for cheaper through him if you want some reman calipers. I could exchange some calipers I have as the core, also. Let me know If I can help.
