What’s up Jeff?
Finally some Toyota love! Seriously, Greg and Jeff, I was impressed by your knowledge, and only wished you had this podcast about 5 years ago. Every axle problem, and solution you mentioned, I’ve gone though. Busted stock birf, hub studs, knuckle studs, have seen it, and upgraded each one of these. I think the worst was when the hub studs went, the dowel holes got wallowed out, and I had to replace the entire hub. Can’t wait to hear more.
Main Topic: IFS or Straight Axle?
Hey guys, been listening since the beginning of the old show.
As a toyota guy you make me laugh and scream sometimes in the same episode.
I wheel a 97 4Runner that is and always will be IFS, I’m currently running 35s and it does everything I want it to do, including wheeling 10 days straight in Moab without a single issue. There are thousands of 4runners, Tacomas, FJCs, 100 series LCs and the like that get wheeled with IFS and rack and pinion steering. Please I beg of you, stop beating up on our trucks lol.
You guys put on a great show, keep up the great work.

I have listened to these guys from day one of their other podcast. I always look forward to new episodes and love hearing about old stories, mishaps, and plenty about axles. Greg, go take a jaunt on a fireroad in your JK! Jeff, build a new rig!
