PreRunner Build

Ok here it is , I dont get on here much but I am currently converting a 2001 Pre Runner into a 4wd with a front ford high pinion 60 and a rear 60. I currently have a divorced 205 case out of a ford that I have thought about using but I am not set on it yet. Any ideas on t cases that will match up to the ford front end without changing trannys? I may just swap trannys if I can find one out of a 4wd.

Thanks in advance

Ur 2wd so the doors are open to anything. Id trade the ford 60 for a gm or dodge 60 and use the inchworm adapter to two gear drive 23 spline toyota cases w chromolly inputs and outputs. Look for a setup in the for sale section or a rig gettin parted out to save a lot of $. An atlas is cool, but u gotta carve out a huge area in the cab floor----->sucks! Search for jay koposinskis silver extra cab. His screen name here is 'roktoy'. He has an atlas behind the crawlbox section of a minitruck Tcase(hi/low). His floor was butchered(but he cleaned it up nicely w sheetmetalwork.

I would keep the ford 60 because it's nice to have a high pinion. Go with Inchworms "Lefty" case and 30 spline outputs.

Aside from the shitty 2:1 low range of the 205; I'd say you're on the right track. The driver drop will work better with your exhaust. For what a built lefty costs, you could buy an atlas . Whether or not you have to cut the floor depends on clocking, belly, etc

How many people have blown out built Toyota cases? You seem to be the minority here.

Thanks everyone for the info, I thought about the passenger drop 60 but I like the high pinion 60 better. I will look into the Inchworm "lefty" case. I think I can get a 4:1 kit for my 205 but I am not sure. I like the idea of the divorced 205 mainly because of cost . This rig is also going to be driven quite a bit.

lomax doesn't fit the ford 205. Ford 205 is real strong but it's a pig and your stuck with a 2:1 lowrange. Sell it to help fund another option.

That's a deal breaker, I guess the 205 is for sale now.

Sounds like a great setup, I think I am going to run a lefty case from Inchworm unless something else comes up.

No , I'm not real sure how it is going to work. I haven't made it to that yet, I am going to do some surfing to see what other people have done about they're brake system.

I just haven't researched the brake system much, I'm sure it has some type of factory ABS, but I am going to try and either adapt it to the 60s or just do away with it.
