I broke a Toy pickup Birfield at Disney, but it was my own fault - I was backing down a gnarly obstacle with my wheels turned to the left, and rolled a Big rock up into my pass. side wheel-well where it bound the axle. KER-SNAP! If I'd had a spotter it never would have happened.

I was 'wheeling with another guy who had Toy pickup axles under his rig & he had a spare axle so I was up & running in no time. BTW, he had broken one before, too soit Can be done....

Of course, there is always the RedLine kit. I would think it would be indestructable under a Samurai.

First off, Hi to the new Stomper_Zuk,
and I have looked into FJ80 Axles, wider is better in some folks books, But w/ moving back east in a year or so, I've got to keep it in a ways to make it legal to drive out there, and around in Philly-town, Along w/ MiniT's and FJ40/60's can be had for pretty cheap now days as everyone and there brother goes to d44's or Fatkids( <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> ) HP D60's.. ala wider is better.. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I have the feeling after looking at everything, I'm going to have to see what I can find for cheep and them just worry about the money to build or buy the built ones,
MT's have more Clearece, the LC's have bigger RP's there is just so many trade offs, and alot of pluses for both, Thanks for all the info, I have the feeling though since MiniT axles are already SPOA and almost bolt right in w/ slit modes to spring location (unless some wants to speak up and tell about there install, hink hink fatkid)
Thanks again Guys.
-ADam and Mary C.

Pop'n a bir is a good thing, if that doesn't go what will? Chances are something harder to fix and more cash. Besides that Birs are cheap, and you can change in no time.

Hey fatkid.. ha ha you crack me up...
right back at ya <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

ammelk, you are correct, there is a sh*t load of options to consider. Just a short list....

FJ40: both offset, narrower than the rest ~55", older ones had 4drums, big diff=lower hanging housing, easy to weld on housing. FF rear available. Birf. eliminator kit avail., bolt on Hy-steer.

FJ60: same as above but wider ~59" and all have disc front.

MT: roughly 55.5" wide, rear is centered though, smaller diff=less dragging housing. Can use high pinion diffs. again, easy to weld on.

D44: Many different widths, can make 62",63.5,65,67.5,68.75,69" using different STOCK axle shafts. Not so easy high steer. custom built any way you want=$$$$$$!
Shade tree=still some $$$ just not as many as dynatrac's... If you use waggy front, deal with weld on cast housing for spoa and/or wider hanger mount position.

D60: Overkill$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!

more pfennig's to ponder...

Thumbs up

I ran LC axles for a day and them swapped them out. They are too big and you will loose alot of ground clearance. right now I run 84 toy pickup axles on 16/35/15 boggers and it is a great setup.Scout dana 44s are also another great swap . <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep2.gif" border="0">
