These are a cool design but the bolts end up broken. The mount doesn't break but the bolts through the crossmember end up broken un less they have enough mass to them.

It is a valid concern, but there are some things that could be done to alleviate this such as using countersunk socket head cap screws. While they can become damaged I've never not been able to get one out and I use them all of my truck.

No 80 parts yet, but I did get the axle tube ends designed for the Tacoma axle

No eta for production at this time, but it will lead us into offering an 8.4 housing at some point



Also working on an 8.4 pinion guard. I'll have the 3rd member in house again next week to finish up the pinion mount and we'll get a few prototypes out for fitment and testing so expect this one fairly soon.

At this point it will only fit 96-04 Tacoma NON TRD Rear Axles.

something like that for older toy minitruck 8" axles would be cool, i would definately buy one for my rear end.

If you could pump some rear pumping armor on their too that would be sweet

Thanks for the offer, but I got the Tacoma area covered.

Didn't get a chance to go pick up my spare third this week so I don't have a prototype out yet.

What's the status on the Toyota 8" diff cover and skid? I noticed it's not on your website anymore, I'd really like to order one.
