I wasn't calling any business in the open Kurt and wasn't intending to (sorry to offend you). I posted my message out of frustration of trying to get parts and support the local businesses here on mud such as yourself.That was us.
To clarify, we stock over 6500 part numbers, a large number of which fit the 7x Series, everything from steering parts to dash parts. We specialize in servicing our in-stock parts with same day shipping, that represents 98% of our orders. We do add to our inventory daily, much of which is based on customer inquiries or parts needs from our wholesale partners, i.e. if we see general demand for an item, rather than buy one we will buy 10 and keep them on the shelf. If it's not a part we will sell more than once every a year-two or we've never had previous inquiries on it... we can't dedicate much shelf space to it, it simply costs $$ to service parts on the shelf or special order. Now, as many of our regular customers will attest, we can and do often bring in onsey-twosy small trim parts, etc for them as part of regular orders but for us to setup parts in the computer, order them with our regular freight from Japan, receive them and ship... it just isn't a workable model for customers ONLY using us for that portion of their business... i.e. you've spent $12.50 with us ever, certainly you've got a source for your regular Cruiser maintenance and upgrade parts that you have been "resorting" to? IMO hey should be your go-to for special order parts as it's frankly a service not a business opportunity
I'd love for a business to prove me wrong, we would love to have a place to send customers for $10-100 international special order parts as we did with Beno for years.
I think you are talking rear axle since this one has the VZ standard Dana axle. No, this is the front axle that was Toyota spec. I am going to see how the diff cleans up before making any big purchase. Honestly, I would put a set of locked 80 axles in it before purchasing anything else!Kelly, I believe Joe had a set of axles for sale recently, might be easier to just start with a different set that match.. IE, not the weird stuff.. Why waste good money on something that is a 1 off..
Sold my last complete HZJ73 front axle to Trey last week but if you have a 8"HP front axle I probably still have a good used front axle housing around , no 9 1/2'sNo worries @FJ73Texas or @cruiseroutfit . I get it and support Kurt and other vendors here -- but understand it is a business for them.

If that really is wear, it’s the most consistent wear imaginable.... if so, I agree JB Weld, then paint. Did that on Foo years ago to fill in all the rust and it held up very well.
Hello,Need to figure out what pinion seal I need for the rear axle. Here is information to help me identify what DANA rear it has.
Plan is to tear rear axle down soon... next up for tonight is to put in the freeze plug and try to pressurize the cooling system.
That is awesome, thanks for your help!! Yes, any original tag is long gone!Hello,
Usually there is a small metal plate with 4.11 stamped on it attached to one of the bolts on the left. I guess it broke off a while ago.
The 37 x 9 stamped on the ring gear confirms it is a 4.11:1.
As for the e-brake and brake drums, you can use Toyota parts. They fit.
No disc conversion is necessary.
