    I'd love to add a LT kit to my truck, but without 4wd I'll never get to where I play at out in the woods. I remember reading up on someone running tundra axles with an LT kit on a 2.7, but can't recall where I found it. Trails near me swallow 2wd trucks, and it's the only way to the sand pits. I'm not looking to LT a rock crawler or anything, but there are a couple decent mud holes along the way.

    Is it possible? Or am I S.O.L.? :rain:

    IIRC the front suspension of I4 and V6 4x4 Tacos, including front drive train, are identical, so modified tundra axles will work. Click this link and look under parts NOT included:

    Thanks blackhawke.

    Your truck is easily the sexiest 2nd gen I've honestly ever seen, brilliant work man.
