Yes that's a perfect place for tons, I know this has been said before, but don't ruin another Toyota by putting Chevy drivetrain in it.

Also, I wheel fairly hard but not reckless and I've never broken a toy rear axle shaft, come to think of it, never even seen one break in person either.

I run full widths and I love them. There are alot of Toyota guys that like to keep it all Toyota. But the reality is, if you are going to run big tires and wheel it hard those little axles will break....As far as the 14B being to big....shave it. Don't waist your money on that overpiced ballistic fab ring gear either, just have it machiened down.

Heavy rig and big climbs = snap snap...but true attest to the resiliency of those arb's I had in there. Two rear shafts snapped, neither took out the locker.

ive had tons under my rig for years now and love them. best thing i did to my truck. all toy everything with built tons and it holds together awesome and the power is fine for wheeling. beat the fuck out of my truck and it just keeps on ticking. chipped the corner off every tooth on my front ring and pinion almost 2 years ago and it just wont break.

it seems pretty 50/50 in this thread..so do what you want but my vote is tons and be done

i certainly dont miss rebuilding my toy front end every trip.

Its all preference just like anything else, but in my experience, by the time you drop a 350, 700r4, 203/205 doubler or whatever, and Tons in a Yota, you could've just wheeled the bowtie that it all came from.
Axles take the most abuse in my rig, and sure Fullsizes are down the road, but built right, they'll allow the rest of my Toy driveline to hold on for quite a while.
A first Toyota owner never gets told "yo! You need to drop thousands of dollars worth a full GM driveline in that bad boy if you want it to wheel right!". I reckon it just sorta happens over time.

Thanks for the input, so here is the plan.........Going to fix the Toyota rear, wheel the shit out of it, if and when it fails again it will be time for more drastic measures. As for the tons, I'm going to start gathering drive train parts for a new build...................Maybe its time to look into building a buggy, or a full size.
