    This is all very interesting, and JBerry813 is obviously a genius. I admit, I don't understand any of it... except for this. [​IMG]
    When any project requires expanding foam, I get skeptical.

    The 9" is a nice axle and definitely a better diff but the regular 31 spline axle shafts arnt really any stronger then stock Toyota stuff. Did you go 35 spline?

    Currie's Tacoma OEM abs sensor compatible axles come standard with 35 spline axles.

    Nice! I wasn’t aware of that. I haven’t really looked into them as I’m running fj80 stuff in my first gen.

    Do 35 spline axles replace 31 spline without modifying the diff?

    Thanks. I figured the spiders would have to match.

    Very nice writeup and I love the Currie 9" Axle. Big money, but big reward. I have a set of Currie Rock Jock D60's on my jeep. I beat the crap out of it on the rocks and have never broken anything.

    Just read the whole thread. Definitely a good solution the our rear diff problem, although also not cheap.

    I"m wondering if the 3rd gen 8.75 rear diff would be another option for those looking to upgrade while spending a little less money and a more direct bolt in. I'm guessing it would be a direct, or pretty close to direct, swap. Next time I blow a ring and pinion I might find out

    But you could be an active participant. I'm already thinking that 9" would be awesome in my truck. Just about the time I think I'm done, somebody charts a new course and I have to have it!

    I didn’t read the whole write up, but how long did the whole shooting match take?
