Re: Toy swap on a budget
I've read lots of posts about how getting into the Toy axle swap always ends in a wad of $$$$. That's why I've never bothered--- poor, broke summabitch here. That is UNTIL I helped E do his swap a few weeks ago. The only cost was the axles themselves, misc. fluids, and a T-adapter for the brake lines. No hy-steer just yet. It'll come a little later. Most important thing is to get it mobile so we can ride. The only lockers we use are made by Lincoln & these axles are in almost perfect condition = no rebuild.
Just figured I'd start a post so if/when someone else is searching one day, they'll find out that it can be done for less than the samurai cost in the first place. I plan on getting detailed pics. as we go along and posting as much info as I possibly can. Lord knows when I've needed help there were always a few I could turn to here.
Gotta get in the garage to start cleaning the [img]images/graemlins/bs.gif[/img] mounts off & open them 3rds up to see if we've been blessed with those 4.37s. [img]images/graemlins/deal.gif[/img]
