Front End Solid Axle Swap

I have been looking into a front solid axle swap for a 2001 Tacoma. A company by the name 'Front Range' makes one for $250.00 But you have to get all the parts. If you have good resources you could probaly do the swap for the same price as a Fabtech or a Pro -Comp suspension Kit. I basicly have an idea Just some second oppinions would be good to hear.

It's the best place for information regarding solid axle swaps. There are more folks over there who've done them than probably anywhere else (cept Pirate - and that's a hell-of-a-lot worse than TTORA).

It's not a bad place if you can get past the immaturity. I've been logging in there since 99....was a huge part of TTORA and PA TTORA and got all my experience through that association. Surely - it's not the same as it used to be but there ARE good people there whom are willing to help especially with solid axle information.

yeah there are good guys everywhere (even on here lol) guess I'm just bias on it since i have never got a good response or seen a gstraight answer given over there.... most guys that ask a question like what type of oil chould I use in diff.? will get and answer that ranges from a single word answer like dipshit or ******....to a long drawn out attempt to make the person feel like a jackass for not knowing everything... seen that one on there and tried to help the guy out but I dont think he logged in ever again

You're gonna get that BS on all forums.

This forum is smaller and thus the overall amount of idiots is less. TTORA used to be a cool place when it was smaller. Back in 99 - it was only for Tacomas and the tacoma was only 4 years in production = less people. Now? TTORA is for ALL Toyota 4WD's and 12 years worth of production. That's a lot of people and a lot of idiots.
