    I have bought some really nice 80s in the 5-7k range. You're looking in the wrong places.
    1992 Explorer Build with axles, tires, and bolts
    2007 Lexus GX470 with sliders, roof racks, and tires
    2005 LJ with low gears and poor fuel mileage

    Solid axle swapping a runner is a waste of money. Once you take on the wheeling it will do you will start blowing differentials.

    Yeah, I picked up the diff drop and installed it at the same time that I did the front lift.

    Just some quick figuring:
    -Allpro 3 link kit- $1,400
    -Allpro steering kit -$800
    -axle, plus upgrades $200-???
    -driveshaft $300
    -shop time 10 hours? @$75/hr

    Minimum $3,500? You could save some money by using leaves, but performance and ride would suffer. You could save money by not buying a kit, but it will cost more in labor...
    You forgot the coilovers in the quote lol! Yeah, I checked out AllPro and it seems to be the kit to get if you are going linked.

    You'll have a lot of money in a SAS if you get someone else to do it, i think a solid axle Toyota would be awesome, but i've never felt limited by the IFS considering i have to drive it everyday. That would quickly spiral downhill.
    The front got lifted approximately 3". My hub measurements showed it being 3 and a 1/16th on both sides. I did look at getting rid of the ADD front diff setup and putting the taco manual hub setup on it. I have been reading over all kinds of build threads on a few sites and have seen pictures in almost every one of them with cv axles blown to bits. Someone mentioned stronger cv axles and then it started blowing differentials lol!

    I parked next to a SAS'd Tacoma in Inman and that really sold me on getting rid of the IFS. In fact...that is probably why the boots ripped lol, truck looked great and was definitely wheeled!

    I have no plans to take this thing to KOH and try to go up Backdoor lol! I am planning to keep it in the 35" tire range. If I could keep it low enough, would keep it on 33's.

    As for getting a dedicated trail rig...no go. I live in an apartment complex that doesn't offer garage spaces. Not to mention my wife is the assistant manager so I am sure that wouldn't fly lol

    What size tire are you running?

    Only way I see blowing it up bad is wailing on it in a bind. I've seen a lot of ppl run 35s and 37s on stock shafts without problems. Finesse saves parts, redline puts on a show.

    Do it. It will be cool but it wont be cheap. Trail gear makes a kit that's a little more affordable.

    Yeah, I don't do redlines.
    The TG kit is tempting as well. I was checking out their multiple kits. Still can't see how they would charge 5K for a kit and still need parts for the included axle lol
