    Anyone?

    anyone ever run a v8 on toyota axles, with 35's or bigger? chromo shafts and birfs? i read somewhere if you truss the front and put chromos in it than its a strong as a stock dana 60... not sure if its true or not but thats pretty impresive

    I know you can run 40's on them with a 4 banger all day long as hard as you want but didnt know if anyone has experiance with more power on them.

    ran a 350 in a full body toy and 38 gumbos and never broke, and i beat it hard , put on 40 boggers and broke like 6 gear sets in a few months , went narrowed 60s after that and never broke,

    You will be pushing your luck.....some people can make it work with all the good parts, others cannot. Terrain, input power and driving style are huge variables.

    A lovely notion, but it just doesn't work that way. There is nothing magical about Toy axles. They are engineered well and as a result, perform very well for their size and weight. But sooner or later physics kicks in and mass trumps all of that. A D60, while also engineered well, is massive in every aspect when compared to a Toy axle and as result, can deal with a lot more abuse, power and larger tires.

    I have seen a few Toys over the years with stock axles and 44" Swampers hold up Ok - but that is with a 4 banger and playing in the mud. Conversely, I have seen lots of Toy axle carnage with much smaller tires on the rocks....with and without a V8.

    thanks for the input guys,

    I picked up a 1st gen toyota truck the other day, i pulled the axles out of it and am putting them under my sammy for now, im going to do a full frame up resto on the yota while i wheel the sammy, i have a mint 305/TH400/205 coming for the yota all done up im going to toss in it and put the axles back under it then sell my sammy off its orignal samurai axles.

    Im a very conservative wheeler and dont go out to try the hardest obstacle on the trail i just like to go cruise around only use my skinny pedal in mud really so i should be good to go once the axles are built up!!

    Thanks for all the hints and tips guys
