will the yota diff's handle em.?:rolleyes:

with longs and the rest of the upgrades the diffs *should* be okay, but the next weaklink will start to be the t-case.

09-06-2006, 08:17 AM
even if it's 23 spline?

09-06-2006, 08:54 AM
do it trev, do it. im sure you'll find a way to break it no matter what sized rubber you use, and this way its awesome-er

09-06-2006, 09:10 AM
alllll about how you drive it, just gotta be cautious were the wheels are turnd and when you put the power on, said this before and ill say it again.. my buddy ran 40" boggers on toy axles with a 350 and didnt break in 2 years, little bit of luck, and knowing how to drive, i dont see a prob with runnin the 38.5's personally...

09-06-2006, 10:07 AM
even if it's 23 spline?

outputs are still the same size and thats the part that breaks

with longs and the rest of the upgrades the diffs *should* be okay, but the next weaklink will start to be the Trevor behind the steering wheel.

09-06-2006, 11:22 AM
I havent had a problem trev

09-06-2006, 11:31 AM
just do it trev, just use some common sense when you get into certain areas.

09-06-2006, 12:00 PM
buddy ran 38s on toy diffs with no problems...he had the v6 3rd members and he was good.....till he welded the front then he started breaking birfs....i would go for it they hold up well...

09-06-2006, 02:46 PM
resee seems to be ok on his the ocasional breakage but hes pretty hard on em with the 5.0

09-06-2006, 02:56 PM
They seem to eat up detroits.


09-06-2006, 03:16 PM
no neverto high resee not murdumb

09-06-2006, 04:28 PM

09-06-2006, 06:59 PM
why you want 38.5s trev......lift your toy to much so the 36s look stupid or what

09-06-2006, 07:59 PM
upgrade the birfs and dont be stupid.......

although sometimes being stupid is fun.....

just try it... if you break lots of shit, and think its to big sell them or trade them for smaller tires.... If you break shit and dont think its to big go 60 and 14bolt....

09-06-2006, 08:20 PM
well i have ofield's and a lockrite in the front...

and i just got my BRAND NEW IN BOX detroit.

froma dealer in langley.


ok enough bear poking...

common sense when you get into certain areas.

like family camping spots?

09-06-2006, 09:00 PM
doooooooooooooo it!!!!!!! but 4 runners look like they will roll easy with bigger tires on them.... easy on the donuts eh?

09-06-2006, 11:07 PM
she's gunna be tippy as is.

it's a toss up.

09-06-2006, 11:35 PM
if it where me I wouldn't...I think 37's are pushing it....

09-06-2006, 11:52 PM

wheel it for a while first trev before you decide 36's aren't enough.

09-07-2006, 12:31 AM
if u have longs and shit do it, may as well before u lose some money after running them

09-07-2006, 07:02 PM
i dono man, with tires that big and the way you drive, and you know how you drive i wouldnt do it.....besides 36s will be plenty of tire...wont it?

09-07-2006, 07:29 PM
keep the 36's

looks mint its a good height nmot too big id leave it dude[cheers]

09-10-2006, 01:53 AM
Dont do it unless U have longs and all the studs etc. I ran 38's with smurfs and locked v-6 third short side axle shaft becomes the weak link and snps like twigs [16]

09-10-2006, 09:43 AM
take off ur skirt and do it all ready ......[f].......[5][5][5]

09-10-2006, 11:17 AM
I agree with Jimmie, same deal here, 38's + toy front= blown birfs.

09-10-2006, 05:27 PM
I agree with Jimmie, same deal here, 38's + toy front= blown birfs.

sure ... if ya drive like an idiot .

back in the day .. we drove on em' just fine ... all comes down to how good of driver ya are .

09-10-2006, 06:11 PM
Are you for real? So back in the day you must have been a really good driver on all those logging roads. Dont you drive a 2wd truck? I can guarantee, anyone who rolls on 38's with a locked front and actually wheels....will break birfs/smurfs or any other aftermarket stock style birf.

09-10-2006, 06:35 PM
you built what .... 1 truck ?

I was drivin' Toy 4X's when you were still in diapers ... YEAH .. "been there done that "

I drive a /86 4x4 right now as a daily driver .. and am building a custom 2WD .. but am by NO means new to the toy truck world ..2 OR 4WD
27 years ... YOU ?

I guarentee ... it's the way you drive ... " skill factor " that has a huge bearing on whether you break things or not .

09-10-2006, 07:08 PM
I'm not going to get into a pissin' match here ...

bottom line (in MY opinion)

drive it (I think its strong enough) ... if ya break it ... then replace it ..

09-10-2006, 07:46 PM
Wow you must be old? Wheeling in 1985 wasnt the same as it is now. When you were pimping your KC highlights with neon shock boots, what was the hardest wheeling around??? Clear Creek? Yah this is the only truck i've built [16] ...and me and everyone in the world that has blown birfs have no driving skill, you win. Good argument.

09-10-2006, 08:31 PM
so your saying trails get harder every year, it took skill to 4x4 back in the day

09-10-2006, 10:22 PM
sure ... if ya drive like an idiot .

back in the day .. we drove on em' just fine ... all comes down to how good of driver ya are .
I have snaped shafts idleing If u read this he has 4.7s and duals it will break and u dont have to drive like an idiot to break it [16]

09-17-2006, 08:52 PM
This thread rules...
So basically as long as your a good driver things won't break! AWESOME!

09-18-2006, 12:56 AM
apparently I'm a horrible driver then [wako]

09-18-2006, 07:56 AM
Ya dood, me 2 :o

09-18-2006, 09:40 AM
apparently I'm a horrible driver then [wako]

welll...... have you seen the body damage on your vehicles[f] [cheers]

but i also think 38's are a litte big for the weee little toy diffs........

09-18-2006, 10:09 AM
hey now, my rx7 is still has straight body panels[9]

09-18-2006, 10:47 AM

09-18-2006, 10:56 AM

09-18-2006, 11:05 AM
i think 38" is a bit much but im gonaa run em

09-18-2006, 11:54 AM
toby's gotta leave the driveway to ever have a chance of breaking something[f]

09-18-2006, 11:57 AM
i know i know gota bell housing i can borw

09-18-2006, 12:05 PM
nope, no luck... Try contacting the guy at www.supracharged.com I know he is working on casting some custom bellhousings for the 1UZ swap (lexus V8). so he may have access to some stock w58 bellhousings (or know where to get one) for the 2/3rz.

09-18-2006, 12:08 PM

09-18-2006, 12:22 PM
maybe you should just skip that puny 4cyl and do a 1uz swap. Lexus 4.0L V8 with around 250hp & tq:cool:

and they've been around since early 90's so prices are actually pretty reasonable. But they never came with a manual, hence the custom bellhousing he's working on.

09-18-2006, 12:37 PM
i would rather a 5l toreg deisel

mmmm vokeswagon v10

09-18-2006, 12:54 PM
mmm turbo deisel[g]

09-18-2006, 12:59 PM
i'll take one too.

09-29-2006, 11:03 PM
what the hell, who can piss higher over the fence, who cares!
Lets talk tires....
Back when i built toys, i ran 33's,35's,38's and 40's. If i was back into toys I would run 38's in a back road second. With the right gearing. As far as what breaks and what dosnt, blah,blah,blah, run what u got!
