    That be pretty awesome, but it wouldn't be to smart of a move for toyota cause most people buy a truck for work, or just cause they like trucks and never intend to take them offroad.

    We would all love a real solid front axle, locking diffs, etc... but it will never happen. The best off-road vehicle Toyota builds here is the FJ Cruiser, and they are pulling the plug on it next year. So the chance of a truck with solid axles is very unlikely. Im sure the Rubicon is on thin ice too!
    Its too bad.

    It'll never happen....

    Besides - it'd be a solid axle from the factory. It'd have all sorts of factory stupid stuff on it. You'd be changing shit anyway to make it more offroad worthy.

    If they were gonna do anything - they should follow what Jeep did with the Rubicon. Build a complete, solid, strong offroad rig with solid axles, selectable lockers, atlas transfer case (It's a dream right?) , lift, bigger tires, etc. all in one package.

    But, we can only dream. It'd cost a FORTUNE.
