not necessary .. Toyota rear axles are larger then chev 1/2 ton ..

buddy had a 327/350hp in his rig (almost beat my Vett in a race ) ..stock toy axles and 36" swampers .. never a problem .. and I'm NOT that aggressive .

besides .. this rig is NOT a rock crawler , it will be a DD /tow rig , as I have stated !! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />


Shaft diameter, perhaps, but not ring gear side...

Full floaters arent gonna give you a bigger ring gear, tho... (i know you didnt say it)

He meant the ring gear end of the axle shaft. Toy ring gears compare favorably to Dana.
FRORF's full floater conversion would have been much stronger, cleaner, and easier to execute.
For a DD with a blown 5VZ.

My bad - typo. I mean to say that the ring gear itself is larger than a Toy.

toyota alles are just as strong , if not stronger then the Chev 1/2 tons . axle sizes between the 2 are basically the same , but the chevs have a "narrowing" near the end of the axle .. creating a weak point .. Toyotas dont !!



Ring gear here , being the STOCK 4:10 ratio , and lots of "beef" should hold up excellent to the horsepower .. ( 280 est. with the supercharger we'll see)


Full floaters are obviously stronger , with load sharing at the disc end .. I just couldnt justify the price !! shipping and all adds up .. just like when i'm sellin' my stuff .. same sh!t differen product .. http://toyotafiberglass.com

Interesting POR-15 story...

was swapping out brakes this weekend from an old set of knuckles to the T. Rather, I tried. Rust got in the way.

I had POR-15'd the knuckle, steering arm and everything but the disk brake dust shield (which was powder coated) back in 1996. These parts have seen about 8-9 winters of use since then.

The POR-15 areas were still "black," but they were pealing like skin after a major sunburn... The powder coaded pieces were great.
