    I have a 2008 Tacoma TRD Off Road.
    I'm looking at doing a SAS to it. I was wondering if anyone knows what the WMS (Wheel Mounting Surface) is for a stock rear axle on a 2008 TRD tacoma.
    Trying to make sure the Axle I'm buying for the SAS matches up. If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appriciated.

    I am currently deployed, so I'm trying to figure all this shit out over the computer and it aint helping me out much lol so any help is appriciated.
    Thanks.

    Nope 65", HP44 out of an F250 with GM half ton outers is an almost perfect match.

    I don't see how this isn't a relevant Long Travel question :confused: WMS width is an important number when determining your rear track width and how wide you need to go on a custom width rear axle when replacing those pesky wheel spacers. :)

    OP, I believe the OEM WMS on a 05+ Tacoma rear axle is 65"

    When measuring WMS, where did you measure? At the begining of the wheel stud? Were the rotors off?

    Is the rear wider than the front on the 2nd gen? Would explain it all... I'm not saying you're right, but I measured it myself and was only going by that. If I was really up to it I'd go measure my 2nd gen...
