We'll tell you right now that this truck is going to eventually get a solid front axle, and because we planned on that we also had to figure out which transfer case we would use behind the doubler. Czajkowski has kits to run either the older mini-truck passenger-side front-output geardriven case or the stock driver-side front-output chaindriven Tacoma case, and though some of us think geardriven cases are stronger, we decided to stay with the Taco case to facilitate an easier install of the solid axle (no need to mess with the exhaust, plus we can keep the IFS working till we get ready to tear it out). So Czajkowski's tech Rockey Gleson pulled the driveshafts and transfer case to start the rebuild.
