Question 1996 Tacoma 4x2 with a 2.4L

Mid-life crisis mod...will attempt to convert my 1996 Tacoma into a 4x4. My question with regard to the rear diff: want to install 5.29 gears with Arb airlocker RD129. Stock diff. is 7.5". My question: will I need to upgrade the axle shafts to 30 spline? I think the ones currently in are 27 spline.

Your front suspension is completely different, you'll have to swap frames, put a solid axle under the front, or cut off your UCA and LCA mounts and add new ones where the pre-runner/4x4 mounts are.

Are you planning to do an sas? Having the 2.4 youre a 5 lug so swapping to 4x4 is not going to be easy.

Heres what one guy did, if youve got the skills or $$ then go for it!

Yup, SAS in mind is the Allpro Rock Jock 60 Taco Supreme. I realize it's involving some serious bucks, but I've been preparing for this for some time. The good thing is it's all complete, the tranny is a W59, so I figure it's not too difficult 'cause the 3rz also has a W59. Modification here won't be overly expensive. I'm allocating approx. $13.5K Rear diff. locker is on it's way, and the Arb twin compressor is on it's way, should arrive Thursday.

I have serious doubts about the 7.5" 5 lug axle holding up to this, but subbed for the results

Question Arb Air compressor

Question: Trying to decide where to mount the compressor? Thoughts and comments would be appreciated. "bout the only place I can figure is in the bed behind the drivers side.

You might be able to fit it under the hood on the passenger side. Otherwise in the bed maybe in a tool box would be good.

1996 Tacoma 4x2 with 2.4L

As mentioned before, I'm trying to convert my 4x2 into a 4x4...well, check out Mosk's posting on Yotatech titled 1995-2004 Tacoma A/T vs M/T ECU pinouts. As for me, it's a godsend. Hoping this information will make lightwork for others.

Smile Arb (twin) air compressor

Well, I finally finished installing the air compressor. Located in the taco bed. I added a 1 gallon tank so I can use pneumatic tools @ 120-150 psi. This will also engage the lockers. See pics in gallery. Additionally, got a 6-bolt rear end to replace the 5-bolt lug pattern.
