I was just curious. I'm at 122 and wish it was about 10" shorter.

Fuel cell...like the one under my bed? Of course its custom w/ all the smog crap still on it. I had the same problem when I went to the shorter 85 xcab frame--no place for a gas tank.

the shorter wheelbase is a must do. Well worth the pain.

So is it smoged as a 98 or an 85? Last i checked there was nothing i could do. Modifaction of the fuel system was/is against the smog law.

My god, I am just dribbling all over my self over these pics! Do any of you folks have writeups and or specific details on the swaps? I am doing one too, and need help with some of the details. Anyone near me in socal that would be willing to lend a hand? I got beer and tools and everything is just about ready to be swapped in there.

You guys do not want me to post pics of my 85 runner to put all you Taco's to shame. Just fawking with ya all. All these Taco's are looking SICK!!!! Soon as the kids are grown I will be going Taco for sure.

Hey Rob, did you get my PM about this weekend at Frank Raines. Just got off the phone with a Ranger from that area and got all the details about that place. Sounds SICK!!! Check out the post and who is going. Let me know if your in or what your plans are?

It's reg'd as a 98 Tacoma w/ a salvaged title. I talked to a smog ref and he just wanted the smog equipment on there. really didnt care that the tank wasnt the same. just cut apart the stock tank and welded the flanges onto my custom cell.
Of course I dont have to smog my truck ever again where I live, so that helps too.

Are IFS rigs allowed? lol

I have a SFA it's even got a air locker and cross over steering! It's just not mounted on the truck yet!

I don't know how to post pics, oh well you could have seen the IFS taco that puts these SFA rigs to shame!.. Maybe next time

I have some info and a few links here:

There is also a ton of Tacoma specific axle swap info on the TTORA message board, check the axle swap folder.
