    To my knowledge nothing has ever come with radius arms in the rear. that axle looks to be to be toyota. Looks like radius arms from the front of an older ford.

    advantage ? :)

    I think leaf springs (and drum brakes too) are so good for heavy load trucks and old "jeeps" and but they don't work as well as coil springs do for everyday driving and "sometimes" offroading.

    Leaf springs win in:
    - load capacity (but who load a tons in to Tacoma? :) );
    - Simplicity and cost;

    Coil springs win in:
    - flex;
    - jumping;
    - climbing;
    - ride tuning (now my own Tacoma suspension is really easy to adjust);
    - lifespan;

    The axle is original Toyota Tacoma rear axle. Radius arm from Mitsubishi Pajero II (MMC Montero in USA as I know).

    Front armor bumper, custom build :) also I change a "factory" fog lights to the 90mm HELLA Classic - the HELLA lights looks good but I'm not impressed with the "price/perfomance".

    And yesterday night I "check" the lights. I was impressed and I still impressed :)
