Trail-Gear introduces a new concept to the axle housing design. This
exclusive design features axle tubes that have been offset above the
housing centerline. The inner axles ride near the bottom of the axle
tubes rather than in the center. The results are an increase of 3/8"
ground clearance under the axle tubing.
The heavy-duty, press formed, 1/4" plate steel center section shell is
specially shaped to ensure a minimum of 3/4" additional clearance under
the differential. The differential mounting surface is made from 1/2" plate steel to ensure studs can not pull out, even under heavy loads.
The outer offset flanges are made from 4130 Chromoly to prevent
distortion or bending. Housings are precision aligned using
start-of-the-art, 3D digital imaging equipment.
The axle housing measures 60 1/8" WMS to WMS and will fit a 95 1/2 -
2004 Tacoma. This housing also includes a drain plug. Spring perches,
shock mounts, and vent not included. Differential stud kit and RTV
silicone are included and are recommended for use with this axle.
Unpainted bare-metal, oiled finish to prevent rusting. We recommend
that you degrease the housing inside and out before installation and
