I am convinced this rear end is made from hens teeth. Even called Toyota and they can't get one anymore. It's looking like we will have to buy the ring and pinion and then the rebuild kit and put it all together. It's the gear ratio of 4:10 and the fact it needs the speed/abs sensor on the top and it's for the 91 V6 4x4...freakin hens teeth! Don't get me wrong, I love a good challenge, but this is crazy. Thanks again for all of your help. I am still searching and making a list.

Gee, you sure picky, I have a 4cyl. Toyota pickup w/o an engine, but with the running gear, that I will let go cheap

Somewhere, there's a warehouse, the size of Rhode Island, where they horde all the hen's teeth and 4Runner rear axles. With the market cornered, they can sell only new unimaginablably expensive Shelby Fiat crossovers or something. Or name their price for 8" 4.10 ring and pinion.

The 4R got a big chunk of the existing market for Broncos/Rams/Blazers, Land Cruisers/Land Rovers, HiLux/Ranger/mini-pickups... What were production numbers for '91, I wonder. And where is that warehouse?

Thanks Steve, but that won't work in our application. :( We are still hunting and will find what we are looking for then it will just be a matter of how much do they want for their set of hens teeth set in unobtanium. :rolleyes:

Assuming you already tried Randys and National?

:confused::eek::cool:Hey Dana Tony--

Ring gear looks hammered! W-A-Y abused!! If it wasn't about the shim pack I'd say a master kit is in order. Shim shim sheroot, I'm not clear if you get shims with any off the rebuild kits? I mean IF the used ones in your abused 3rd member aren't right for the rebuild, do you have a source? More to the point, what is the project you have in mind, just the ring'n'pinion or a rebuild? I gather cost is an issue, clue us on budget. Don;t say "As cheep as possible", say "$400" or "$1500", so we know how much you need to make this make this runner go.

Note, if that's covered in your rebuild thread, n'mind. I'll read about it.

Also noted: RETIREMENT IS FUN. Kiss the old drag g'bye, learn how to hear your own self think again, it is worth the pain :confused::eek::cool:

I wish KC was here to spell it out in emogees, I miss the master, RIP.

Where in WI? You want me to take a look at it?

Thanks Ned, we are looking for all the pieces to this puzzle. It will likely come from various sources. He wants a master rebuild kit, that does come with shims and either a crush collar or a solid spacer, then we also need to find a set of 4:10 gears to go in the back. It will happen just not fast enough to make him happy. I am just super nervous about spending $$ now that I am no longer working. First time in my working life I have ever been unemployed/retired.

Remember we still need to put new tires on it and haven't even looked at PMing the bus for this big adventure. :rolleyes:
