Going to pull the IFS steering box out of the '86 on Tuesday to put in the '84 for the high steer. Going to go ahead and tap it for hydraulic assist while it's out so I don't have to pull it back out later when I do the hydraulic assist. I'll just cap the fittings until then.

Hi nice runner got to love the old schools. The 86' and up rear axles are better because of the longer width I believe 58" rather than 55'', which is better for wheeling because you won't be stuffing the rear tires in the wheel wells as much. they are pretty much the same axle. thought axle tubes are bigger on the 86' and up along with bigger brakes. I'd like to have an 86' and up rear axle on my 85'. 4runner looks good!

It looks dumb unless you have a full width front. And screws up your tracking on steering.

Ya, but thats when you would put wheel spacer's on the front axle to match the rear. Have you ever been to the Marlin site? just asking there's a bunch of cool older yota stuff over there. Just throughing it out there not trying to make any waves. All the things i learned about the older yotas i learned at Marlin, now I got my 08' for my DD i have to learn all over again. so I turned to TW for info and stuff for my new truck. Cheers

I'm keeping the axles I have now. A set of Longfields up front with some 4340 Chromoly shafts in the rear and I should be good to go

I'll add a link to the Photobucket album I made for it. All pictures I take will be uploaded there but it may take a few days before I get them put up in the thread.

Since this thing already has 4.7s and dual lockers, it's making me wonder if it has Longfields in it already. I guess I'll be pulling them Tuesday to find out.

Yeah I'm basically doing the TG Classic Front Kit. I just don't need the brake stuff, the high steer, or the knuckle rebuild kit right now so I'm ordering it in pieces. It has brand new brakes all around with extended lines, the knuckles were rebuilt two weeks ago, and I have Marlin Crawler High Steer on order. I'm excited to get this thing out and wheel. I was going to try to make a day trip in March but looks like it will be under the knife for most of March. Now I'm just hoping I'll be able to make it to the Lonestar Toyota Jamboree in April!

As far as I know my knuckles have never been rebuilt so I figure I can go ahead and do that and learn how to work on it. I also want the crossover steering so I like how Trail Gear includes so many parts.

Right now I've got a cheap lift with blocks in the rear that the previous owner installed. I want to upgrade the rear at the same time as the front and clean off the whole frame and por-15 it and be done until I can get some gears and lockers.

I look forward to your progress, keep it updated

I plan to run my knuckles as they are until I need to rebuild them again. Then I'll be upgrading to the Trail-Gear Six Shooter knuckles. If you're going to be rebuilding your knuckles, might as well do everything at once. Look into this kit from Marlin. It's a little more expensive than some but it includes the wheel bearings also. Plus it's Marlin so you know it's the best!

http://www.marlincrawler.com/axle/fr...le-service-kit

Not sure if you're looking for just lift or offroad performance but the 5" SkyJacker springs and ProComp shocks off of this one will be for sale in a couple of weeks. But if you're looking for offroad performance they wouldn't be a good match. They no flexy.

Thanks for the advice, I do plan to pretty much rebuild the whole axle, new wheel bearings, Marlin inner axle seals, knuckle rebuild.

Like I said I already have a cheap lift so I'm not looking to replace it with another cheap lift . I am looking for off road performance.

Well I wouldn't really classify this one as a "cheap lift". No blocks or anything, it all comes from the springs. But yeah, I understand. You just never said exactly what you were going to use the Runner for. I should have known though. Who would have one of these things and NOT wheel it?!?
