    If you are using a 1GR, isn’t there a 6 speed available?

    Yes, I think some folks have tried the conversion with a 6-speed, but I'm not sure how that's gone. Some concerns are the length of the rear driveshaft (in shorter wheelbase applications), axle off-set, and a number of other issues. Plus our next evolution of this drivetrain platform limits us to the 5-speed, something we'll announce at the next SEMA show.

    Lots of measuring, design and development going into the various bits and pieces

    That would be nice if the window cranks, door levers, trim rings, and front door plugs were available.
    You would have the market corned.

    Very nice build, just wondering why you orientate the driveshafts as you do? I always thought the slip yokes go to the tc end.

    Toyota put a DC joint at the tcase on some 4x4 rear drive shafts. This one looks like what’s in my 4Runner

    Looks like you are sending part models off to be built by a 3rd party? Someone with a large database of models could do well as a middleman getting obscure parts built for folks like us ;)

    Is the drivetrain out of a 70 series 1GR powered 'Cruiser?
