Getting really close. Duals are in. Just need to cut holes for shifters.

Rear axle is in place and disc brake kit is on. We set the pinion angle today and will be dropping off drive shafts later today. Wheels are supposed to ship this week too. Hopefully it will be moving soon.









Sliders are built now too.

Damn clean work! Any hesitation on using the Rock Assault housings on a daily driver? I thought trail-gear admitted questionable pinion lubrication at highway speeds?

The 3rd member alone dictates pinion lubrication. The housing itself will have zero to do with that, so I am not sure where you heard it or whether the person who said it was talking out of their ass, but that is not true.

It used to be that TG never had a baffle to cover up their breather port. Because of this, the ring gear would sling oil out of the breather. That was the case on the original versions of these axles. These newer ones are MUCH better quality than the older version and are now baffled. They have stepped up a lot compared to early versions.

I like TG for the most part, and good work Scotty. However, I just don't like trailgears' housings. They are beyond ugly.

I won't argue with you there. Still better than a POS Dana 44 though IMO.

It really depends on what you want to do with the truck. There is so many variables. A d44 is easily sourced for parts, very cheap too. They work great until you really want to become a hardcore wheeler. They just aren't beef enough to withstand hard wheeling. Starting off with a D44 is a good way to learn and cheaper at first. But in the long run it will cost more money than just going with a stronger axle first.

I do beat the shit out of mine (so I like to think) But it's built fully, and even being built, it's bent right now... haha

Sorry Scotty, this isn't the place to discuss axles

You'd have the cash if you didn't spend your money on those sweet front/rear bumpers, icon front/rear suspension, arb front locker, and all those other goodies

Because they are more expensive to build to less strength as a Toyota based axle. Even starting with a Diamond axle. RCV or Superior shafts are $1000-$1200 alone VS. Dirty 30s or Longfields which $600-650. Highsteer is around $1200 too by the time you source flat top knuckles, have them machined and drilled/tapped, Gears are more on the D44, as is the lockers, and install kits. Then you are stuck with 4.88s unless you want to run mismatched gears with 5.38s up front and 5.29s in the rear.

IMHO, a D44 is NOT an upgrade over a Toyota based axle. Even with cromoly everything, the limit on the D44 is around 37s. I know guys running 40s on stock Toy axles with Longfields in them and not breaking.

2.28:1 is all that will ever be needed with the A/T.

Crawl ratio is around 90:1 and the torque converter doubles that to 180:1.

I ran dual 2.28 case in my old 4runner with the A/T. I had disc brakes on all four corners and had trouble stopping it in 4low sometimes in reverse. Any lower and it would just drive through the brakes. That and if you run 4.7s in the front case you are adding A LOT more stress/torque to the rear input shaft on the rear case.

Well, she is driving. Wheels showed up yesterday and its out of the shop. We just need to finish up a few little things. FWIW, this thing is tall. Frame height at 28.25" when it left. Hoping that will settle at least 2" over the next couple weeks.

Next is sliders and a rear bumper.
