TOYOTA rear end ???

9 inch fords are getting as scarce as honest politicians down here, so I've been snooping junk yards and I've seen plenty of toyota pick up rear ends wich look as strong or even stronger than the venerable fords, has anybody ever used one?

another big advantage is that most of them already have 4.11 gear ratios.

the best I've seen so far are from the land cruiser and the stout pickup ( I think the stout is not available in USA, is a very rugged truck about the same size as a hi lux with a payload rating of 4.000 pounds)

please comment.

Augusto.

Seems like the toyota's I have seen seldom have much issue with rear ends..But since you are where you are at and have what you have I would go ahead and use one and find out..I would not turn one away if it would fit the car I am working on..

I believe the 4runners or some of them anyway run a 9inch most of the 4x4 trucks are 8inch and various carriers are available like posi,locker and spools. but like anything the 1 legged burnouts will take thier toll on the spider gears.

I've seen in US mags (mostly 4x4) several 350 chevy's transplanted into toyota pickups in USA, but the articles never mention the rear end, so I assume they use the stock rear end with the new mill wich in many cases is a hot engine, I even remember a hilux pickup with a buick GNX motor, awsome!.
I think they must be good as both of you guys state, but would be interesting listening to someone who has actual experience with them.

One more question, this Stout pickup rear end is quite chunky, could it be a problem being too much unsprung weight?

done some googlin', the stout pickup was available in America in 1964, it was the first toyota pickup up there, there is a picture I found from one in Bolivia, this is the same that is available here, man those darn things are indestructible, they survive indian drivers.

http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%94%...ota_truck1.jpg

I wonder why this site is in japanese while the pic is from Bolivia???

The pumpink looks like a dana 70 and is narrow, perfect for a street rod.

there are thousands of this ugly trucks here in Ecuador and they are prefered by several over the newer models.

The rear end in the link you posted would have to be quite a bit stouter than what i have. It looked to be a full floater.

Look at the ones in the current big toyota pickup (US market, I don't know what it's called) I wonder who makes them for Toyota.

indeed, the stout's rear end is a full floater unit in this side of the planet, but some older models had semi-floating units, looks like a narrow 9 inch ford, toyota has a small diesel truck, you know those cab over engine type rigs, wich uses the same full floater rear end, but the pumpkin and guts are the same for both full and semi models.

there are several models that don't go to the USA, this stout for instance, I bet toyota wouldn't sell more than 100 units per year in USA, but here they sell like crazy, no truck can resist the abuse this toyotas take, they are rated for a 4000 pound paylod but it is very commen seen them in the andean indian villages loaded until no more stuff can be piled up over the truck and they don't break, you must be crazy to drive one of this things, they'll break your back in no time, the rear suspension is there only for looks, feels solid, period, this things are so simple, the engine (5R and 4Y later ) had carburator and points untill 1999 when they where discontinued here because of newer polution laws.

look what I found, a stout with a SBC:

there is even a pic of the rear end in there.

Saludos from the middle of earth.
