I used all D18 parts so not sure about the Toyota stuff. I am using all 1310 ujoints, front and rear.
The majpor mods were I had to machine the center opening on the disc a little to clear the flange. Also had to build a mount on the skid plate for the caliper.
It has been about 6 years since I installed it. It worked gerat for most of those years but like many D18's it is starting to leak a little and the gear oil is getting on the parking brake, I sometimes will apply slight pressure to the brake and drive for a while to "burn off" the oil.
71' CJ5, 87' 231 V-6, SM465, D-18 w/Warn OD, D44-Detroit, D30 w/ARB, Warn 9000# winch, on board air.
