    Yes to the 1st one.

    Scared that if I go back to the shop I’m going to spend more money. :spending:

    that’s exactly what I thought. Lol I assumed that Harry needed all of the outer internals for the 934 orders.

    You may push the limits somewhere. I haven't heard of the axles snapping but heard of component failures such as cv bearings, diff gear, etc. Eventually the only answer is to overbuild and go 9" and 934 in front ;) ask Harry though. They're open and honest about building it and goals you want to obtain. Nothing wrong with overbuilding as long as it fits your needs.

    How many front diffs have you heard of breaking. I know more RCVs that have broken than the yota front diff. I've broke several stock shafts and 2 inners. Never a CV bearing guessing you mean the needle bearing and never have I seen or heard of a front diff. The rears on the other hand are notorious.

    I’ve personally seen a chromoly +2” axle snap in half. It was mostly driver error but not out of the question for anyone else to pull off.

    Yup. Installed it in February last year.
    So I think with this install I may have reached full JDFab fanboy status. +4 kit, LCA tab kit, slide rack and Howe steering kit. At this point I will no longer off-road my truck. Mall status only. @kasnerd Where do we meet?

    I’m not sure what I want next, the inner fenders or the steering setup. Once my current steering setup dies I’ll likely be more motivated.

    Somebody posted their front gear on here when the subject came up. Can't recall who but I don't see it entirely impossible. Havent came across RCVs breaking catastrophically but mostly due to bad design or user error: seen the boot go leading to the bearings eventually going out. And by cv bearing, I mean the tulip bearing. The tulip bearing excessively plunged out at max angle and broke the housing due to lack of/broken limit straps.

    Raises hand..

    1 broken front diff
    1 broken Currie Enterprise chromoly +2 shaft
    2 broken outer cages

    only mentioning the rear diff and axle shafts for fun..
    1 axle shaft
    and too many rear diffs to count, which is why I carry a spare

    Im at the point now that I can easily rebuild my front and rear diffs no problem. It's not hard, just need to understand that it takes time and patience to get the desired numbers

    The latest front diff rebuild i did
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/monkeyproofs-misadventures.697489/#post-24678861

    And my most recent rear diff rebuild..
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/monkeyproofs-misadventures.697489/page-4#post-25613239

    And speaking of rears, theres only one very crucial Tacoma product that JDFab has not put out to market yet, which is a fabbed rear housing. I heard a rumor though, and I hope it's true..

    was hoping to install some JD stuff, but tucking the front and making skids took all weekend. It ain’t pretty, but everything is as tucked up as I could possibly make it. I think that’s as slim as an ARB can get, too.

    Anxious to get started on the JD stuff next.

    Oh that would be rad. @jamesepoop def agree I’m usually about overbuilding and a new rear end is on the longer term map for sure. Not sure what I want to do for the front but taking to Harry I’m sold on the Howe kit for sure but need a few other things first.

    Anybody found a way to put boots on the slide rack yet? Curious to see if we could all come up with something.

    Too many to remember
    The driver side will be the issue as the clevis bottoms out right against the steering input shaft casting. I’ve had zero issues running the additional outer rack seals that the kit comes with

    My main concern is the drivers side is definitely getting pretty nasty. I do have concerns when it comes to winter driving as they are pretty liberal with salt. With that said, the truck will likely be parked for winters after the long travel stuff.
