Camo method doesn't require you to remove the rotor tho. And either way you gotta take off the caliper. I see no real world reason to do the taco brakes. I've done them for a buddy and they are smaller when comparing to a ifs truck. Even the 4 cyl calipers are. It is nice tho if you want to take the spindle off for some reason. I never touch those bolts tho. I always remove the knuckle as an assembly.
There is a company who makes steel 15" wheels just to clear on tacomas, but I cannot remember their name. Only had 1 customer come in to see if I could get them and that was a couple years ago.
Tacoma brakes are smaller than 4cly ifs and v6 ifs. So id imagine they would be easier to fit wheels on. My buddy with a 98 is also running some 15s right now.

I am running the 86 IFS calipers on the fj rotors with 1.25" wheel spacers clearing a 15" steel wheel. on the rear with the tacoma rotors I had to run 1/4" wheel spacer or I could have shaved the side of the caliper some to clear the wheel. I am going to be doing the Tacoma slip on rotor for the front this week. I've had some IFS hubs and 99 4runner rotors laying around. also spun a race in a solid axle hub so I need to replace it any how. I'll let you know how it turns out it you havent done yours yet
FROR brackets, 02 Tacoma calipers and rotors, IFS wheel bearing that were machined on my lathe fit my 15" Ultra 50 wheels. If I had 17" wheels I would have gone with the same set-up off a 96 and up 4runner because the calipers and rotors are bigger.
What backspacing are your wheels?
Ok so I have a 4" back spaced wheels. I am using the same IFS calipers I had with my fj rotor swap. I do have to grind down the caliper for the wheel to bolt on, or get 1/4" spacers but I don't want to do that. I think the Tacoma calipers are the only ones low profile enough to clear the wheel. I don't think it matters what backspacing you have, I don't think steel wheels go from the hub out to the rim at a steep enough angle to clear IFS calipers so go with the taco calipers if you can. I also decided to tap my calipers so I would not have to try to squeeze a nut between the caliper and rotor. I did M14 but it thinned out the ears on the knuckle quite a bit so if you tap yours I would do a m13 to keep as much material on there as possible. Kinda wish I went with front ranges taco caliper mounting bracket but I don't have the money and I think this should work fine. Hoping to have it all finished tomorrow
Bring on the pics!
Tapping the caliper seems very sketch to me. The knuckle material is much better for threads than the caliper. I don't believe any calipers on the market are threaded. I've never seen one. Just my 2 cents.
My next question has to do with the use of bearings and such when doing the IFS hub swap. Am I re-using my straight axle hub's bearings or do I need to buy IFS bearings? What should I expect there?
I just looked up a 85 and a 88 runner, same part number for wheel bearings
