The old KZ is probably a blast to ride! I assume it is lightning fast. And the old shovel gets bonus points for having dogbone risers...PIMP!

Cool bikes for sure!

Did some wheelin over the weekend. Broke a steering stud, but replaced quickly. Probably should reinforce the arms somehow.... It was an awesome day of wheelin.

I do love the wheelin out here! Yes, that gap is from when i narrowed it. I'm not sure if i'm keeping the hood or not, I'd like to start with a cleaner one. Welding a beer can with a 220 welder brings the suck as well. I just wheel it as is for now.

Mine has a few big holes in it, not looking to welding it with flux either.

6 shooter knuckles with ARP studs, new cone washer and 25MM trunnions from Marlin. Problem solved.

I hit that rock that bent my wheel at 30-35 MPH. No issues with the steering at all.

You will have to machine the 6 shooter arm to accept the larger trunnion.

The trunnion on the left is the chromoly Marlin part. The trunnion on the right is the stock sized, who knows what metal.

I keep thinking one tons and 42s would fix the stud issue..

That'd do it.

I waisted tons of money, time and friends patience dragging me to my trailer trying to make Toyota axles work in the HomeWrecker. The fix was Dana 60ies.

The only upside of all my axle building and swapping is the bitchin' front axle that migrated to RatZuki.

My recommendation is not to put 1 dime or any effort into Toyota axles and go with 1 tons. You will be money ahead in the long run.

Yep. Long inners and Dirty30 outers. The locking hubs have 6 5/16 dowel pins instead of the 2 8mm factory pins and chromo hub gears. The knuckles were cut and turned to 17*. The drain plug was removed and filled in with a plate, then a 5/16 plate was bent to the shape of the bottom of the pumpkin and welded on as an additional skid. It has a cut down ZOR crab and the ram mount is a 1.5od .188 wall chromoly tube with 1/4 plate. The knuckle balls are guesseted and the axle is trussed and plated on top. Longfield wipers, TG backing plates, Koyo bearing, 3/8 thick link tabs and 1/4 thick shock tabs. And of course Marlin 25mm trunnions and 6 shooter knuckles with ARP hardware. additionally all other hard parts were replaced with OEM Toyota parts. I'm sure I'm missing a few items.

I built it for the buggy that kept bending Toyota housings so I wasn't f&@king around.

Fifth stud solved my steering stud problems with full hydro

Do the fifth stud kit. The fifth stud can be a huge grade 8 bolt and because it is riding on a different plane than the 4 stock steering bolts it is quite strong! It has been argued stronger than the 6 shooters somewhere here on Pirate. I will link to it if I find it again.

This is where i check out...the one ton debate is a hard one. I guess i can see where they make more sense out west where you typically dont have to fight for traction. Here inthe southeast its interesting to watch a samurai rig with one tons attempt a climb thats moderately slick and then watch one with yotas on the same climb. The difference is huge...the extra weight really becomes an issue and you can tell the rig is having to work so much harder.

Was your stud a stockone or ARP? Do you retorque them regularly?

I had a mixture of both arp/stock. and have broke both. I did flat file the two mating surfaces, and that seems to have helped.

I love yota axles, but they just dont hold up to az traction. Especially when you start getting into stickies.

There's no debate about it out here. If you wanna run the big boy trails on yota axles, you will break. They are on borrowed time, but im ok with it for now. Driving smart makes them live longer.
