    Has anyone ever told you this is the best 2nd gen build to date? Cause it is!
    2000 Ford E350 Motovan or a 2005 Corvette Z51 towing a 1998 Aliner Sportliner Off Road edition
    New build is starting with a 1997 Ford E450 with 7.3 PSD and a 17' Grumman Olson box.

    Thanks for the comps.

    I will probably gusset the top, but there is more hiding in that bump structure than can be seen in the picture.

    Diesel was under consideration last winter, even had a complete twin turbo V8 Land Cruiser drive line located. I passed for several reasons including but not limited to... emissions BS, the fact that Toyota has an oil consumption problem on some of those engines, and the SC 5.7 has much to give in terms of product and performance. I suspect Dieseltoyz may have picked that LC unit up(?). So we'll be seeing a diesel Tundra sooner or later.

    I don't know how I've missed this for so long...
    You're doing amazing things with your truck!
    Hopefully I can see about some ARB's for my Tundra in the near future...

    OK, due to time and the 10.5" mess up (machine shop error), I'm moving on to using the 10" Sequoia diff. After some serious searching, I found a differential center that is so close to dropping into the 10" Sequoia differential that I can taste it. It will need some machining, but it will fit. A couple of new old stock Torsen Type 1 differentials for this particular application just happened to pop up, so I snagged them for a song. They even turned out to have the very common 1.5" 35 spline side gears! CV stubs are already produced for this app, so it souldn't be difficult to procure the proper pieces. This will allow size 21/Porsche 934 CV joints to be used. At 5" in outer diameter, they should prove to be quite durable.

    Stock 10" Sequoia vs Torsen.


    Here is a size 21/934 CV vs a size 15/930 joint, which is about the size of the Tundra/Sequoia CV.

    Here we were all thinking you were just goofing off during the Holidays... this should be an interesting application.

    This build is just HUGE, that is a fantastic mix you are making there.

    Would be great to have more input on this frame and this torsen diff. I have send you a pm
