    At The moment i dont have any pictures flexing. I did the rear and go it to sit level with no blocks but the angle of the shackle was kinda shitty. So im working on fixing the shackle angle and making it look better and more functional. I got some more pictures of when it was on 33 and a leveling kit flexing hard.... I thought ill put my buddy truck in here if you want some flexing pictures.....

    Do you want a picture of the front hanger. Its going to be a little bit because im 6 hours away from my truck.

    Cost wise i would say under 2 grand for axles and all the stuff to solid axle it and get it on the road. I got 1600 bucks into brand new mtr's the old style and 3.5 inch back spacing pro comp rims.
    Its just taken me awhile to round up enough money to blow on a toy. Ive ran into a lot of problems with putting a ford hp 60 in but its well worth it.


    My buddy truck didnt have a driveline in in that picture but he put one in and it flexed the same. But he narrowed the rear of the frame and moved the axle perchs towards the pumpkin and used dodge mega cab spring for the rear.

    lolz..

    cool truck btw.

    i never gave much thought to a solid axle swap but, when i pay this thing off i'm wanting to do a heavy duty one!

    lol buy an older 4 runner to drive around while they work on the taco.

    i knew it was a lot to do to your truck but, to see it all laid out is overwhelming lol i could never do this myself i would need an accomplished shop to do it right for me and thats a shame because that makes the price borderline retarded for a top notch set-up.

    If i was going to redo it i would have GOT EVERYTHING up front. My biggest problem was figuring out the brakes. Since i have toyota chevy and ford trying to match everything up and make lines and doing disc brakes has been a nightmare. Now i can tell you exactly what you need if you need help.

    Another one that i would consider again is my suspension. 4 link front and rear but money forced me to do leafs. Im stoked on how my front leafs came out im super happy with them and flex and drop out good.

    The junkyard has been my friend but some stuff you have to buy for full price lol.

    Some pics from my rear disc 14 bolt hd swap :confused:
    I use brackets from http://www.jkwoffroad.com
    Pretty basic kit but i ran into problems. I had to cut the brackets to fit since i have an axle thats an odd 14 bolt. I ended up putting my brackets behind the flange instead of bolting them to it. I talk to Trevor at WFO concepts and got his input. He told me to match a 3/4 inch gap between the rotor and bracket in order to have clearance for the pads. Then you have to adjust the height so the pins that hold the caliber dont hit the rotor. I used a penny to keep my height right. After i figured out all of this it went really fast.

    Sorry i dont have more pictures of doing the swap but i wanted to get it done...

    [​IMG]

    Another flex picture nothing special but found that my steering shaft was hanging up. So i have to build another one with 2 u joint instead of one at the box... more pictures to come and hopefully some wheeling ones:D
