nissan with taco axles

so i hope i can get some info from anyone who has put yota axles under thier nissan.i know yota front axles are right drop but i have found left drop axles.i want to do this conversion for two reasons nissans and toyota trucks are reliable but everyone has a yoto so nissan has been neglected in the aftermarket scene for awhile they are becoming popular.i like what the yota axle offers in durability and nissan never brought a straight axle to the table except patrols and they are right drop.second reason is i have toasted my ifs in my nissan it has tons of trail miles on it and its tired i like how narrow my truck is even with big tires i dont want full length axles under me it would be to wide for my preference any info would be greatly appreciated.

I couldn't figure out if he was asking a question or trying to make some sort of statement?
There was something about right and left drop axles, But Taco (Tacoma) was always IFS. It was only the pre-85 trucks that had straight axles. Then something about Patrols, What does that have to do with it?

I am guessing he is talking about aftermarket axles, probably trail gear axles.

Its not a bad route to go, little more spendy then going with junkyard axles.

if you have the money and paitence anything is possible. i could put mog axles under my pathfinder if i really wanted to. it just comes down to money,time, and ability to make it work. so to answer your question YES you can put yota axles under your nissan rig.

THANKS!

Its really cool because I didnt need to relocate the spring perches on the rear axle itself also the spring hangers welded up perfectly to the chassis and the rear driveshaft itself lined up perfect to the tranny and for the front the shafts aline as well...

Got guys wondering bout what type of tires I'm running they are 31x15.50R15
GOODYEAR TERRA TIRES on 15x14 American Racing steel rims runnin 10 psi on them. I got 4 other sets 2 for the street use both 33x12.50R15 Cooper Discoveries, one on 15x9.5 Centerlines Fluted Hawks the other on 15x10 Mickey Thopmson MT Classic II also got 35x14.50R15 Super Swamper BOGGERS on 15x10 Prime Wheels and the last 9.5x16 (33x9.5R16) Bridgestone Farm Service tractor tires on custom made 16x8 w/2.5 backspacing ProComp Rock Crawler Xtreme steel wheels.

Will be posting up pics of this badboy in action!

The only thing gay is your rig.... Bet your dog got more balls than you!
Post pics of yours and I'll bet you everything it just about similar to any other nissan rig out there so stop hatin' and go get some magnifying glass fab it up to the 30 psi head of yours and maybe you'll read it better....

I was only helpin out the rest of the guys here on pirate4x4 with the questions they had about tires I was runnin'....

I think Pirate4x4 needs a remedial section for guys "xjbrian219" like this...

whats with all the losers talking shit.i didnt post a thread asking for people to talk garbage.i cant count on my hands how many toyotas,jeep,chevy,and fords ive had to pull out of situations or tow back to camp with my stock nissan.my truck stock will go anywhere i want it but im ready to modify hence i was asking about if left drop tacoma straight axles will work.to everyone who is talking smack hope i see you on a trail hope you are stuck cause i gonna tow ya.wheelin,crawlin,muddin,or trailin we are all out there to have fun and enjoy the trails lets remember that when you wanna start talking crap on someones thread.you wanna talk shit start your own thread keep your useless blabberin to yourselves.and did any of you losers read guahan has several sets of tires and rims each with its own purpose.if any of you idiots have been near or on a farm you would know that tractors rarely get stuck.ive driven heavy equipment those tires work great for traction in mud rocks whatever might get in your way.personally guahan i think your rig is sweet and i will post lots of pics of the build of mine.and to all the haterz fuck off thanks for wasting time and space

Duh.

IMO that D21 looks clean. Just a little too tall for my taste, but it aint my truck.
Spend less time worrying about why others do what they do, and more time worrying about what you do.

IMO...It needs bigger tires or less lift. Right now it looks like a poser show truck. I'm sure it works fine in the sand.

To answer your question...Toyota axles are not the best choice, yes will they work. You will have to flip them and they are a little narrow, so your turning radius with big tires will suck. Also in rocks they will not hold up well on the heaver Nissan, look at tossing some cash on longfields and then replacing the R&P from time to time.

Post up your build with the Toy axles...then the rebuild when you switch them out for something better....we will all enjoy reading the thread.

i was under the impression that any sas i do my steering is gonna be comprimised.my other plan is find a jeep waggy to throw under there.been told its a great swap cause of the high pinion steering.and rocks arent so much a issue i dont rock crawl but if ones in my way i want to be able to cruise over it.im also thinkin of linkin it not leaf springs

If your just on moderate trails the toy axle would be fine. The turning radius will not be great. You have not said what the axles are out of so maybe its's not a 55" older toy axle that has been flipped.

It really sounds like you need to do more research. With Waggy axles the turning radius will be slightly better then stock. The Waggy axle is a great choice (also the most popular) but IS NOT A HIGH PINION. It is also not the best choice for links as the cast spring perch is hard to get good welds on.

IMO a middle 70's HP ford F100 dana 44, with the long side cut to waggy length, and waggy/chevy 6 bolt outers seems to be the best overall choice. Hopefully your not scared of shortening it.

You will end up about 63 wide vs a 61 wide waggy....and you will have with a good section of tube on the drivers side to weld the links and truss onto.

In this case, Pirate is not the best place to ask for help, most Nissan guys don't post much here because there are several Nissan specific web sites that have much better information and knowledge about what works and what doesn't.....

You can flip yota axle and use it. It is plenty strong enough . Yes it is a good idea to run long fields. It is a little narrow,I had to use wheel spacer's. Check out ruggedrocks.com Steven has alot of info. Check out my rig .

Also check out NPORA as far as forum. Good luck
