    I'll apologize in advance for asking a question that has probably been brought up numerous times. I searched all over and have not really found as much information as I would've liked to in order to feel comfortable with making a decision. That being said..

    I have a LT kit on my 00 Tacoma Prerunner that is approximately 4.5" over per side. I am currently gathering parts to spring under my truck. My question is.. Which rear axle should I run, a T100 or a Tundra? I would like my rear end to be a little less wide than my front but have enough room to mount my shocks on the outside of my frame without notching my frame.

    Would anyone happen to know the widths of a T100, Tundra, and Tacoma rear axle from wms to wms?

    ...too much shit to list.
    You'll need a Tundra axle to go outside the frame.

    DMZ built this cage on a first gen with a Tundra axle. Good way to keep your bed space and have low profile bedcage, but far from cheap:

    I don't know the t100 width but wms-wms on the Tundra is just a hair under 66"

    Thanks. I work with the guy who owns that taco. Haha. Adrian's rear is pretty wide, although I'm sure the Walkers contribute to the width of his truck.
