Tundra rear axle in FJ?
I've tried to search, and haven't found much. I know about the Rockjock 60 and the 9" options, but wanted to search a Toyota possibility. Plus, I see Allpro's link to their Rockjock is no longer working.
The Tundra 10.5" axle is super stout, and I would say it is much stronger than either of the other options. Ruffstuff makes a fabricated housing already, Nitro Gear makes 4:88 gears (which is what I already run), and ARB makes an air locker.
I have also heard that the Tundra wheel sensors are the same as the FJ's, but I can't confirm.
The only real issues I see are width and lug pattern. Both can be solved with custom axles.
The other issue is cost.
Other options may be cheaper, and I know that, so please don't make this a "you should use THIS axle instead" thread.
I'm just sick of busting my ring and pinion. I want to fix it once and for all.
I do a lot of wheeling and camping, as well as a lot of towing. My travel trailer weighs just under 5000lbs. I want to get a new Tundra for daily driving and towing, but I'm at least a year away from that.
