I don't even know why this is a discussion.
Further more...By the time you stop wasting money on Toyota axles you will realize that you should have been upgrading the won ton stuff.

|dragrcr65||I have never seen someone who will use throttle until something happens stick to 35s. first its 35s, then 37, then 4ds, then all your friends will make fun of you for ONLY having 43 (just ask me how i know) from what I read there is NO way I would consider toyota axles. I had a toyota with a 4.3 once, and i broke axle and case parts like they were butter. yea, I drive like a drunk monkey, but it sounds like you do too...|

|Mr Stubs||Check out Jantz Engineering. He has a DYI kit or can install one for you in a 9.5 third.|

May be overkill for 4340 30 spline, but worth looking into

my old 8" arb carrier had marks all over it from the pinion from when it would deflect

I wish I could post picks easy. I would show the load bolt marks on the backside of my ring gear. Ring gear deflection is real.
Custom load bolt in 9.5 thirds is money. Shafts are not a issue since they are 35 spline.

Well, sold my FF 8" and spacers to a friend going under a much milder rig
I built a FZJ80 rear with a Grizzly and Nitro shafts. That should hold up to 35s all day.
On the front i have a couple of directions... I bent Brians ear over at FROR for a good hour awhile back. He seems to think that FJ80 vs Mini was a moot point, because at the end of the day its still 30 spline inners. Well, i have a 30 spline rear, so whatever.
I have a friend in Kangaroo land sourcing me a H233 HP front diff. (31 spline carrier). I have a SD D50, 84 mini axle, and a FJ80 front for donor outers... Or I found a Dodge KP D60 collecting dust, but the weight and clearance penalty doesnt seem worth it.
Given those options, and only those options, discuss. Back in the day my last rig was a F350 with D60s on 35s. The gas peddle was binary and i never broke an axle shaft, because it couldnt go anywhere without full throttle. so (in my mind) 30 spline will work. Money not an option, i already know im spending $3500+ on the front.

|BadRep||After reading threw this post ive got a few questions. I just picked up an 86 4runner. I'm debating swapping out the toys for d44 and a newer chevy rear with discs. I'm in Idaho, I dont think I will have any issues with narrow hard turn trails, this is my first "trail" rig build and I'd rather not build it multiple times, hence going full width and dual cases from the start before I build drivelines. Does anyone still run toyota leaf springs with full width axles? I also noticed someone mentioning Ford axles, isnt the diff on the wrong side?|

60 up front
14-bolt out back
CRY ONCE orrrr cry twice.... your choice.
|02-10-2019 08:07 PM|
60s for me all day long. heavier, way more flex, overbuilt for most yota.

|too tall||I'm partial to toyota parts I have beat on 9.5" thirds pretty hard and they have held up pretty good. I would think that on 35's they would survive. I made a 60 series housing close to the same width as an 80 series rear using the spacer you talked about earlier. Trail gear makes a +5 short side that works when the spacer is added. Quite a lot wider but not quite full width. Allows me to turn 40's on my rig lock to lock and not touch the front leaves. I run a full gusset past the perches on a stock front housing and it seems to stay straight a bit better than others I have seen. I have a set of bigger axles (60/14 bolt) I could have put in a long time ago but these ones just stay together somehow?|

|cryptic toy||I will agree and disagree My thoughts are the third is only as strong as it can be . If you take that same third and put it in a housing that has some beef to it ,seems like it will take some stress out of the third. In a stock housing all the minor bends and tweaks seem like it will eventually play havoc on the third. My third is still good but on its third housing (all toyota and changed asap ) and this one is torque /collapsed from spring perch to brake backing plate. So I'm on the fence of which way to go.|

Is the ARB that much superior in strength/runout/flex versus another full case locker? Ive put in some cheap spools that the back lash varied depending on where on the ring gear i was measuring
GRM - still running an HP e locker on the front?

The rear 8 elocker broke 9 of the pinion teeth. When it was in an FJ Cruiser, the same diff broke 3 ring gear teeth.
My guess is the 8 4cyl housing didnt have enough oil volume and the axle overheated.
But no issues now that I have a diamond 9.5 rear axle
|02-09-2019 09:27 AM|
Im not planning on it being a permanent solution. If I like the setup, then i can order a diamond and swap housing down the road. I also have a spare mini housing. If i need to be wider, i can add IFS hubs to the front and FJ80 hubs to the rear. Or just swap in an 80 rear. If i had a FJ60 front housing, id probably go 9.5s off the bat.
I just cant stomach spending $1000+ on a housing that i dont know 100% spec i want it built to. I wouldnt have thought FJ80 wheels would rub the springs.
