    So I heard from a bird that you can use Tundra 1st gen Axles on a 1st gen Taco to work with LT. Is this true???

    Yup it's true. I'm running them. But the cv joint themselves are different.

    To much to list!
    I dont know about the cv joints but the tundra axles will only work on a kit that is 3.5" over per side. so TC and Camburg are the only 2 kits I know of. Engage is 4" over and been working on trying to get axles to work for a LONG time.

    A tundra joint will not fit on a taco. I asked around last month.

    And that is true about tc and camburg.

    ? Like are you saying you tried to fit a tundra joint into a tacoma stub axle? ya it wouldnt work. The tundra has a 6 ball CV joint where as the tacoma has a "tri" pod joint.

    You need the axle from a Tundra and the joint off your Tacoma. It's a giant PITA to put them together, from what I've heard.

    It is. Thats why TC sells their 4130 built half shafts for so much.

    Home built Mid Travel Front and rear, need help new to this
    Yes, The tundra axle will work, Yes it has a better design from what i've been told. To achieve the full amount of travel you will need to trim it slightly ( I do not want explain in case i use the wrong name for things ). I purchased my tundra axles with trim with longer boots from CVJ axles and have had 0 issues thus far, cycled suspension travel with no bind on Solo Motorsports LT kit is 14" with .5" diff drop
