These arent available yet but will be in the not too distant future.....you'll have to contact Wyatt Scott at www.rocksolidtoys.com and demand that you want these for your trucks...well, atleast show him some interest as he'll be the US contact in the future.

Thanks for the other positive comments guys, it is much appreciated....I learnt alot about my truck along the way throughout the build....funny that huh?

you tend to find what works, what doesnt, what you'd do different again if you had the chance.....but the Hilux seems to be developing on its own if that makes sense?

Sometimes you plan things and they never work out and other times things kind of "just happen" and the truck takes another road in development.....

How I thought this truck was going to be when I bought it has been totally thrown out the window now....my aim is to turn it into one of the most capable toyota IFS 4x4's there is out there.....I think Im on my way.

To do -

Rear Detroit Locker (in next 2 months)

Custom rear tube tray (maybe next year at some stage, already have the plans, with 3 little kids there absolutely no time )

35" tyres along with the other suspension developement mods over the next few months.

Need to fix the rear suspension as it doesnt have enough down travel so a longer main leaf may be fitted and some longer rear shocks to suit the increased front end travel this thing will have.

I'd love some custom front tube fenders on this thing.

Lets just say Shannon Campbell is my inspiration.....many people knocked him at the start saying an IFS wouldnt handle the King of Hammers....well, Im sorta hoping to do the same thing with my truck (not the king of hammers of course but I guess you know what I mean)

Just got word last night that my Upper Arms and extended ball joints are on their way too

Im planning on using ball joint equipped Camburg UCA's and I'll be trying something different with them by fitting extended ball joint to them to get the most out of these shafts.

Heres a pic of the extended ball joints Ill be fitting -



And the Camburg UCA's -


Im hoping both these together will get me the most out of the front IFS...trying to be different and explore what the front IFS of thesecan achieve.

Once the above is done a set of custom built coil-overs will be slotted in that we are currently developing to suit and it should be one of the best "Non extra track widened, long travel IFS" suspension's around.

I assume that these will be cheaper than RCV's. Contact wyatt to express your interest.

11" of down travel by itself or did you mean 11" of travel overall - both up and down?

pretty sure standard Taco setup get you 8" of travel with factory coil overs....as a reference.

That is one hella truck. I think the 2012 Tacoma or 3rd gen Tacoma should look like the Hilux.

It's so cool reading about/seeing all these new products. I have never heard of extended ball joints. What a genius idea. Also, that diff drop is neato and looks much more effective than what we have.

I'm surprised you still have your front sway bar.

Is a possibility that that sac kit could be used on the Tacoma's over here?

Legaly, we need to leave it on....thou when I upgrade my suspension again Ill see how it handles before I decide whether to keep it on or not.

Will the kit fir the Tacomas.....not sure mate,......are the front end portions of the chassis the same? I think they would be...thou the hilux is fully boxed all the way through and the tacoma aren't, but I think theres a good chance it would fit.
