    SAS.. Need I say more.
    Addicted is a 3rd party company, they just sell TG products as well as other products. They don't really have too many of their own for SAS stuff.

    But Scotty does amazing fab work on trucks :cool:

    It's not fully boxed because it's designed to stay "low" If it's boxxed, thats 2" higher lift.

    Rock assault housings are MEH. Get a ruffstuff housing if ANYTHING. personally if you're building the older toyota, leave it toyota front/rear. Toy axle with birfs is plenty strong to handle 37s

    I would prefer to keep it Yota F/R the problem is finding the front housing. I had a good opportunity in December but with Christmas tomfoolery I couldn't pull the trigger. I've been looking all over Race-Dezert, Craigslist, here, and there and can't find diddly.

    I was looking at running 37"-40" tires. So you're saying just go with the rear axle I have now? I was wanting to go with a D60 up front, isn't there quite a bit of width difference?

    Id say 40s with a shaved 14 bolt. But thats just me, thats what I plan on doing. I dont trust the stock rear axle for anything, broke mine with 33s.

    I've heard about it a ton with the 2nd gens, but not to much with 1st gens.

    x2 on RST. I love reading through the different build threads.

    yea, if you plan on tires that big get a d60 front, and a shaved 14 bolt rear. for sure, unless you wanna build the hell out of a set of half ton axles. if you awnna do that either a ford 8.8 or 9", both have great aftermarket support, and a HP d44, with 40's though you will have build it and pick your lines carefully
