might as well go full independent rear. I bet you could use a lot of the front drive from a 4x4 taco to do it too. if this trucks bad already full independent would be evil!

and if you did this, and it worked....

sounds interesting, but I doubt the OEM front diff would hold a large amount of power. But it is fasho a bad ass idea.

If you're thinking of doing an irs why not pull something out of a nissan or something like that? There are a ton of options when it comes to cars that are equipped with an irs from the factory that will handle the power no problem.

I highly doubt that would work, the diff would rotate in the wrong direction

If anything look into Supra stuff, it would more than like work well

yah. supra would prob be the best bet. 240 IRS would prob be a bit too narrow, ive seen them transplanted to harbodies and they work fine. our trucks are a bit wider.

live axle is still da bestest!

It's nice to see someone finally doing it right.

By far, my favorite XR of all time.

Thank you for not being one of those whiny pussies that bitches out of dropping their truck because of the precious ground effects.

Just please don't ever do the "Evo" mod. It is disgusting.
