    I have a friend who has a frontier with Titan control arms on it. This gives him a factory long travel kit. It gives each side about 3 more inches. I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried putting Tundra arms on a taco for the same reason.
    It would be cool if you could do that. It probably does not work or companies like All Pro would not make a mid travel kit.

    never heard of someone trying this... but i know it you do that you would have to change out more than just the control arms.

    not sure they would be a direct fit, seems like the attachment points differ as well as size and alignment specs.

    Ask the Titan guys how those Pathfinder rear diffs. are working out for them, seems Nissan thought making -1- diff. for all their trucks/SUVs was a good idea. Not.

    before i bought the taco i was always on the frontier boards.
    of coarse you will need a few small items...but the titan control arms fit the frontier perfect. great cheap upgrade.

    but tacoma for the win:thumbsup:

    I have a 2008 Tacoma double cab 4x4 and a 2010 Tundra 4x4 regular cab. Is it easy to measure and see if the fit is the same?
