Not another Aussie

Yep, just looked at the site briefly and it looks like fun.

I have always been in awe of the readily available aftermarket go better bits that you guys have over there, especially for offroaders.

I'm in Melbourne Victoria right near what we call "The High Country" which has excellent 4 wheel driving of all types from mild to wild.

I have a 94 4 Runner SR5 limited that I slipped a late model Aussie 5.0 Litre EFI V8 into (only 195Kw or about 260 Hp) and also a set of Toyota 60 series axles and diffs twin locked and geared to go in with coils on all four corners shortly. It currently runs 33" Claws.

Will possibly put some 36s under it but at least 35s which are big tyres down here if you want to drive it daily.

Hopefully I can pick up a few extra pointers from this site for the SAS.

That's it for now

Good to see more people from our neck of the woods... even if you are an aussy

just curious about the chioce of the new axles, why sixty's
Oh and before you step up tyre size you might want to source a new box, those W series box's are good enough for street trucks on small tyres but 35"s offroad and that donk lol hell we eat them on the end of lexus's
Why not drop the 60 series steel case box in they are tough as

Cheers Reece

It's ok, the Runner came with an R150F behind it's original 3VZE.

The 60 series diffs are the same track width as the 4 Runner with big tuff centres (around 10 1/4") and good strength in the CVs, they also have a suitable offset third on the front diff.


Cheers
