full width Tacoma

Im Am Building A 95.5 Tacoma With Full Width Axles. High Pinion 60 Front And A Sterling 10.25 Rear. Ive Had This Truck Built For A While. Im Just Finaly Going Big. Orginaly I Built It With A High Pinion Dana 30. Dont Laugh It Came Highly Built And Was Cheap. I Ran A Stock Rear Changed Gears And Welded The Diff. The Combo Worked Well For About A Minute. Id Brake R&p Almost Everytime Out. If It Wasnt The Gears It Would Be An Axle Or Lockers. So I Finaly Got Tired Of Small Tires And Constenly Working On The Damn Thing. Scored A 87 Ford F350 For A $1000.00 And Started Building. Im Keeping It Simple For Know With A Leaf Spring Front And Rear. Truck Allready Has Daul Cases So Should Crawl Good.

List Of Parts I Installed:
60 Front-5.38 Yukon R&p,detroit Locker,yukon Inner And Outters (35 Spline Cromos) Rock And Roll Drive Flanges (the Sexy Red Ones) PARTS MIKE HIGH STEER ARMS, longfield u-joints
10.25 Rear-5.38 Yukon,miller Locked Diff, Glo's Diff Cover And Disk Brake Conversion. I Shaved A Ton Off The Bottom Of The Rear.
TIRES AND WHEELS-39.5 TSL 16.5 WAGON WHEELS WITH KORE DIY CUSTOM BEADLOCKS.
Lots Of Pics Coming Soon.

Here's a pic of what used to be in it. Dana 30 front with Warn axles, Super Joints from Randy's R&P, ARB locker, and 4.56's. Once the ARB gave up it was changed to a Detroit that gave up also. Stock Taco rear with a 6 pack locker and 4.56's. Oh, and the Detroit was warrantied, so if anyone wants this stuff shoot me a PM. Also had 36" Iroks. Those are also for sale.

Replace the old bent up leafs with newer ones. They are Chevy 3/4 tons. Also got the rear end in and ready for brakes and a driveline. We still have the mock shackles on it and those will have to be made also.

With the new front crossmember in place, we welded it in and then reached for the front leafs. Here's a shot of the front piece welded in. There will be some gussets put in place once everything is in it's final spot.

With the leaf springs in place we bolted up the axle. Really we did, at least on the drivers side. The Ford came with the lower bracket for the leaf springs, so I got some 9/16" bolts from CAT and here it is.

Here's a shot of the pass. side. Just standard u-bolts on this side. The u-bolt plates where made to order by MP Trailers (Trailer Guy). Just give him the measurements and they'll bust out the plates needed. They have the option of having the corners 45'ed but it isn't something that has to be done so I didn't have it done.

I did grind down the rear axle a bunch for more clearance. There are some pics so I thought I'd share. Here is a shot of the rear axle in the truck before it was pulled from the Ford.

First thing was to get rid of the old spring perches. With an open bay, MP Trailers, and an air arch, they came right off. A little grinding for clean up and the tubes where smooth.

Here's a grinding shot. It is a really bright photo due to the fact of someone playing with the camera.

After the grinding was all done, this is what the bottom of the J-Lo axle looks like. It is a good shot to compare with the other rear end photo to see the difference.

Here's a last shot of the rear end with it flipped over so that you can see what I ground and cut off.

I've got to give a buddy some props here. Joe is doing a heck of a job on this rig. This is one of those projects that isn't really hard to do, but it isn't really easy either. I mean look at the thing. There isn't a straight piece of anything about this rig. It is the hardest thing to square a set of axles under a rig, but yet, they look so out of square when you compare the tires to the rest of the rig. Plus, you have to remove everything from the last set of axles, and of course you find things to repair as you go.

Been wheeling with Joe for a long time now and I've been honored to be able to help him out and in return have him help me. He is a great guy and it is great to see him being able to step up to the larger axles and tires. This guy has hung with us for years with the tooth picks and 36's, and I can't wait to see him with logs and 39.5's. Nice job.

Oh, and on a side note. Can you believe that this guy bought this rig used and is still making payments on it?
