    I think it is but you would have to get rid of all the auto locking diff. things
    Edit: not really auto locking diff.

    So the ADD means that the cv half shafts arent spinnin when in 2wd? so basically like lockin hubs but you dont have to jump out and lock em?

    i think you can swap them. but you cant run hub lockers with the ADD. hub lockers are better IMO because the front drive train isnt spinning (less wear, better MPG)

    i know this is off topic but you have the billies on your truck right? my buddy is gonna give me his spacer from his 01 tacoma to put on mine since he sold his. should i just wait and save up for the billies or put the spacer on and then save up and put the billies on later

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    Manual hubs are possible on your truck. I had them added to my 02 4Runner. I don't really have any more information other than it's possible because I don't know anything about how that stuff works. :laugh:



    I'm pretty sure my ADD is disabled now, as it's not needed with the manual hubs.

    I bought a toytec spacer lift kit for $50 just to get the AAL. What does that tell you?
