Tundras are very drool worthy. I'd love a TRD Tacoma in raceway blue for a dd.. also in regards to the made in USA I know its not a USA company but iirc the toyo trucks are made in the u.s. haha

The Tundra and it's engine and transmission is built in San Antonio, Texas. It has a 75% domestic part content.

Ram 5.7, silverado 6.0, f series 6.2, That's the new v8's, I know ford had the failed v10 and I don't think the viper v10 ever made it into anything besides the 1500 srt10

Ram had the V10 that was basically a 5.9 V8 with two extra cylinders and GM had the 8.1 big block. It's too bad the Big 3 don't put out any large gas motors anymore.

I've been liking the tundra ever since they started giving a button to raise/lower the entire rear window. I love air flow and that takes the cake for me.

The Tundra's engines are built in Huntsville Alabama.


On a side note. I had no idea this was Redlyners build thread. I thought I was somewhere in GD.

Progress towards a faster rig . East Coast Gear Supply is working with me on putting together the front Rock Assault 9"- they've essentially talked me out of the TG outers and brakes to go with Super Duty outers, unit bearings, and brakes. It knocks a good chunk of change off and it should help with steering.

A few guys emailed me about the front Rubi axle and big brake kit, Currie steering with Ironman4x4 aluminum tie rod will be available as well. Also..... new axle equals new lug pattern, so my Racelines will be available here in the next few weeks (3 to 4 week turn time on the axle build).




In other news- the tow truck is setup with Fox coilovers, Fox 2.0's and some 35"s. We took the Tundra to the beach this weekend to break it in and had a great time with it. My 2 year old probably enjoys it the most .

Details on how you're going to address the tie rod and drag link location with the Ford knuckles would be appreciated.

ECGS was pretty confident in the setup, saying that this is what they use for their D60 builds. I don't know much more about it than that, but assuming that this is the direction it takes, I'll post plenty of pictures.



This was the proposed build list:
  • FABRICATED 9" INCH HOUSING 3.5 INCH 3/8' WALL
  • D60 SUPERDUTY C'S AND KNUCKLES
  • D60 BALLJOINT HIGHSTEER ARM
  • ECGS COMP 9 - COMPLETE F9 THIRD 35 SPLINE ARB
  • Dana 60 Ford Unit Bearing Stub
  • Shaft 4340 - 35 spline
  • Dana 60 Yukon Super Joints - 4340 Chromoly U-Joint
  • TEN FACTORY 4340 CUSTOM LENGTH INNER SHAFT
  • TEN FACTORY 4340 CUSTOM LENGTH INNER SHAFT
  • Yukon Hardcore Locking Hub set for 35 spline Dana 60
  • 2 DANA 60 AND DANA 50 SPICER OEM BALLJOINTS
  • DANA 60 UNIT BEARING HUBS
  • 5X5.5 SCREW IN 1/2-20 STUDS (TIMKEN)
  • D60 Front Spindle Bearing and Seal Kit
  • D60 Outer Stub Seal (99-04 SD Vacuum Seal)
  • BRAKE-ROTOR... Dana 60 Ball Joint Brake Rotor
  • BRAKE PAD SET FORD SUPERDUTY D60/D50
  • CALIPER-SUPERDUTY LEFT
  • HAND BRAKE CALIPER W/ BRACKET
  • CALIPER-SUPERDUTY RIGHT HAND BRAKE CALIPER
  • Heavy Duty 1-Ton Cross Over Steering Kit
A buddy of mine who races 4500/4400 runs the same axle setup and his suggestions were to run a normal height steer vs. a high steer and try and upgrade the ball joints. Otherwise, it should be pretty stout. The axle is being built to handle 39" comp tires.

Hmmm.... I'll have to look into that.
