You can do some searching on www.4x4wire.com or on www.pirate4x4.com and you should be able to come up with the materials and requirements to make the swap. How much you looking to spend? You might be better off finding a T-100 that's already been SAS'd... :D

How does your IFS keep breaking? Are you wheeling it or rock crawling? If not, and it's used normally, there is probably something else going on that may solve your problems. A lot of IFS trucks get used as trail rigs and some are even used as mild crawlers and they seem to hold up. Just trying to get a better picture of your situation. :)

Yes it is wheeled but my 87 has never blown a diff. whats blowing on mine is ring and pinion in the front the rear seems bullet proof. I am running 35's 4.10 manual 3.4. It looks like i am probably just going to let somebody else own it because it sucks. unless i can do a SAS.
My only cocnern is what front end would fit. i can handle the rest. i have a solid axle for my 90 4 runner that i am going to install (out of a 84). but i thought maybe somebody might i have done this already.
i was also thinking a dana 44 but i do not know if there are any that have the pumpkin on the right side.
thanks

I have no idea what front end would fit, but I have seen a few on the on the other forums. But your 4runner axle is probably too narrow. You'll just have to measure. I would do as Bam suggested and go through Pirate 4x4, 4x4 Wire, and yotatech too.
