    Strange premise tho. Seems like an instalander with no real need for LT. I would want it set up as loooow as possible and get the ground clearance from the tires. I’d be scared to flip that truck sitting so high with all the camping crap dude bolted on top. Wouldn’t handle well in the desert

    Is anyone looking for or needing a set of 2.75 RCLT RCV Axles? We were accidentally sent an extra set, or should I see the wrong axles? DM if interested Will be discounted. They will be sent back to RCV if there are no takers, but they have offered a deal to see if we can move since it will cost to send them back.

    I’ll have to get back to you on that info. It’s sitting on stands right now doing fluids and final checks. It’s decently low though.

    Never done it, but my understanding when I had a setup of tundra axles and planned on it is you cut down the lip on the inner cv cup that the boot is mounted on. Then replace with a 930 style boot

    make sure you get the oem tundra axles with the sliding rezeppa joint don’t use tripods they are all aftermarket I think? They got hard to find for a while, if you are going to be hard on it then rcvs are nice so you arnt breaking expensive cv axles, or atleast they have a warranty lmao

    TC example on where to cut
    https://www.chaosfab.com/PDF/97300.pdf

    for the boot just call kartek and tell them you need a boot for a modified tundra axle on 4runner/tacoma long travel. Something like this but idk if they are different

    Dang, was hoping it was more plug and play lol. What did you end up using for CVs?

    Already had rcvs so I just ordered joint rebuilds to freshen them up and longer bars for the LT.

    I considered the parts store slip joint axles, lifetime warranty etc. but heard stories about them snapping at the splines in the diff and that is a bitch to fix especially on the trail. If you will be medium hard on it maybe they are worth considering but I’m glad I kept RCVs with how many jack shafts I have broken.

    if tundra axles are expensive or hard to source the rcvs will pay for themselves…eventually

    or go all in with a shortened tundra 9” haha

    Oh lord stopppp haha I’ve got to keep this thing semi chill. Hopefully I can find some OEM tundra axles. Looks like just the boot face gets cut off? That’s not a huge deal. The TC link you sent made it sound like the shaft had to be cut out. Maybe I’m not reading it right.

    ahh no I didn’t read it lol

    That’s instructions for a LT sequoia or tundra where they have to remove the outer for a longer shaft. Just leave the outer on and slide on the new inner boot since the shaft is the right length

    Oh ok I see that now. Once I crack one open it’ll probably make more sense what would bind in there.

    Did you come up with a rear sway bar solution? Guess I need to figure out front and rear coils, too. Wonder if stock location rear coils can handle 14” smoothies….
