Are you sure its not just a toyota housing that is offset for samurai's? I couldnt see them putting that much R&D into samurai stuff.

*edit - http://trail-gear.com/samurai-axle-housings.html Looks like it is sami axles. why the hell...

Kit Includes:

* Samurai Rock Assault™ Rear Axle Housing
* Chromoly Samurai axles
* Differential stud eliminator kit
* Differential drain plug
* Ultra grey silicone

on there website it says the housings take a custom axle shaft that they make but I wonder if the samurai third member works with it or the yota third member?

From what i have heard from Joeduckslayer is that its a TOYOTA axle to match the front axle when you do a TOYOTA axle swap. I know it says "Chromoly Samurai axles" but i dont think they are Samurai axle size shafts. From my understanding it just like Sky's rear axle just wider and fully fab'ed from all new parts.

Edit: "The Samurai Rock-Assault axle housings use stock or aftermarket 1986-1995 Toyota Pickup/4Runner brake backing plates and brake assemblies and uses a custom length chromoly axle shaft that Trail-Gear is also very proud to manufacturers"

its a great option for those wanting larger axles and still being able to street with a zuk case. if I wasn't planning rear steer I would probly go this rought when their front housing comes out.

Yep, it's just a offset Toyota axle. And it's pretty good for the price. If I was still driving my Samurai I would totally go for it. But I've gone to a buggy that has a different drivetrain.

They should change the website to say that it uses Toyota thirds. From how I read it, you would still use a samurai 3rd.

I thought about how easy it would be to make those for sammy guys a long time ago. I thought they had more than given up on you cheap zuk bastards buying any parts at all besides 6.5 gears. I'm unclear at this point of the game but if it uses a zuk third member then its retarded there is no point in swapping to a custom housing and keeping a crappy third member that is easily converted to fit a zuk application.
