I searched around didn't really find my answer anywhere, I have always had luck and seen a lot of my friends run toyota pickups on 35s or 37s with no problem. I am purchasing an 89 yj it has a 4.2l carb doesnt run has bad gas but I like a challenge. I am looking to know with a little fabbing would i be able to put a 22re in the yj? new to the forums mostly reading.
Yeap junky ole toyota stuff, barely handle 37s stock. And whats with the gear driven Tcase that can have the gears swapped to lower ones? Who needs lower gears..... And third member drop out center sections that are interchangeable front to rear, who needs that junk? Gearing ratios that are just WAY to many. And WHY would toyota not make non serviceable front bearings like jeep? And those manual hubs, who wants to get out and lock those in??? And the rear axle shaft being the size of a small baseball bat.
Obviously I am not biased in any way. I can like 2 things. I am not a "retard" as someone above so harshly called the idea and question above.
I have both jeep and toyota. The last real solid axle toyota came out in 85.. And they still have a hard core following, with many places still selling parts for them.. My toyota will out wheel my jeep any day, better wheel base and just strong built from factory.
Reason #1 is to keep things light as possible. Toyota Tcase's can be stacked for real low gearing that does not effect normal driving. That is why. The 22re is not a power house, but it can be made to put out some real good numbers.
Yeap. Dont know what they missing do they? I had a 80 Hilux but sold it to get my 4runner..
If i did not know so much about jeeps I would convert all the way over to the yota way. But.......I old and stuck in my ways..
