    Not yet. :p Instead of getting a full front bumper built, I'm going to slap on some bumper caps to match the lines of the front fenders. For now, as long as I'm running the stock front bumper, the skidplate is staying.

    Btw, truck looks good. Let's go offroading sometime and test those new UCAs and coilovers. Are you eyeballing those used T100 4.10s on EGS?

    Yes.

    I found some on the local Craigslist for $30. Just need to know what truck they're out of. It says Toyota 8", but it might be an 8.4"

    Using the Tire Size Calculator, 3.91 running 30" tires will put you with 'factory ratios'. You should be getting 20+ MPG.

    Not all 8.4" are the same, i.e. Toyota Sequoia are also 8.4", but their gears will not work in our 5 lug diffs. Just because of the design of our carriers.

    V6 Tacoma (2wd) and T100 gears will work on a 5lug diff.

    The key difference between Tacoma 8" and 8.4" is the diameter of the pinion gear shaft. The few guys that have regeared a 5lug have had to purchase a new diff carrier to make it fit.

    BTW, the truck looks awesome lifted. :cool:

    I knew I had to stick with T100 and Tacoma's. Didn't know I had to stick to PreRunner Tacos. Good knowledge there.

    Thanks for the compliment on the truck. I got some backlash from the lowered community, but fuck it. BUTT FUCK IT.

    gearing depends if you are auto or manual. if auto you should look into 4.30 or 4.56

    Already have the fronts. Just have to get the bumper caps and rear glass.

    Two sets of 4.10s for $30? Damn, if they are for our 8.4", can I go in on that deal with you for a set?

    Hmm, I'm auto. Care to explain?

    I guess i'll be the first to chime in about about us lowly first gens with the 7.5" rear end. It's really fucking shitty trying to find c-list/used parts on the cheap for this axle...
    Anybody know what other trucks this axle came in? I think it was just a bastard set up for 1st gen tacos. Or did the earllier toyota 5 lug pick-ups use the 7.5" rear end as well?
