    i was watching some show the other day, "extreme 4x4" maybe, and the topic was a wheeling competition. i noticed alot of the rigs had rear steering capability, even some of the ones with seemingly short wheelbases. anyone ever heard of this being done with a tacoma?

    I know some of the GMCs come from the factory with this option- so the technology is somewhat mainstream, so im curious why you never hear people talk about it on the forums here.

    Bump. I just destroyed my rear end and I was starting to get some crazy ideas that included rear steer.

    Independent front suspension is not the ideal setup for 'extreme 4X4'. Start with a solid-axle conversion and then start thinking about rear-steer.

    Do you know if it has ever been done on a tacoma? It would be a trailered rig of course. Just curious if its ever been done and how much work it would require to do it. I've tossed that idea out by now.

    rear steer is something buggies (mainly do) most of the time, they are VERY large axles with full hydro steer.... not sure if anyone has done it in a taco.... probly but id bet the only thing taco on it was the grill
