for a 3 link sas swap both front and rear on an extended cab second gen, can you keep the stock 4wd transfer case system without having to put in a second transfer case or replacing it entirely?

Cost of a total 3 link sas swap with coil overs on a 14' Tacoma

How much will it cost to do a front and back sas swap with dana 60's 3 link with coil overs or ori struts, parts and labor? As well as putting in 37-40 inch tires? (all parts brand new)

Materials, $10k. Labor, $15-20k. Can be done cheaper, can be done more expensively.

I do make a nice set of brackets specifically for your truck for a 3-link. PM for details.

That's a pretty good quote, but I couldn't do it any cheaper than $30, unless the customer supplied the parts and they were used parts. You'll get $6K into the front axle alone without blinking an eye.

Looking back, my budget for both buying the Tacoma and doing a 3 link (parts and shop labor included) is around $40k-$42k total.

Would I be better off getting a first gen tacoma to make this 3 link mod fit within my budget?

You're better off getting an old school toyota made in 1985... Already has a SFA, you could convert it to links for around $6k if you want... and about $4k for the truck or way cheaper depending where you are located.

I just built a 2001 4Runner for a customer with a 3 link in the front and leafs out back. It was a 3.4L/Auto truck to begin twith and it had the electronic case and ABS. It was a $30K+ build. So no, building an older Tacoma is not necessarily going to be cheaper. Areas where you could save money: buy a truck without ABS, a manual shift t-case, and use a junkyard D60 for the front.

The problem with the older (1985) trucks is that they have no power. The 2005+ 1GR-FE 4.0L has V8-like HP, so comparing the two is really not fair.

Yes possible, but why do the SAS with no gearing options? It could always be added at a later date I suppose.

Hell I have at least 15K in my 85. Thats the cost of new parts and outsourcing when you dont have the tools or facilities when you start a build. Luckily I do now. It all adds up quick. It will be more after I start linking it.

I keep thinking it may actually be cheaper to start with a 2wd or PreRunner. Less to remove, less wiring, less flashing lights on the dash to deal with. Of course you'd have to buy another adapter or a different transmission...

My truck started life as a prerunner. Can't say it was easier to deal with but it didn't have ABS which was a plus. Once 4wd swapped, I chose to put a J-shift t-case in and trans from a 4wd 4runner. Now that its axle swapped, I'm glad it doesn't have ABS

Well I have plenty more $ in my 1st gen than your 85. So my statement still stands. Besides if you run toyota axles on the older trucks you can make it pretty bad ass for $10k... It's $10k just to swap to a SFA on a tacoma.

So if it already has a j-shift case with 4wd and no ABS... you saying that's the ultimate truck to swap?
