Ruffstuff's Toyota 8" Front Replacement Housing

We have made these custom for years but it's time to make them a production Housing. They have the same dimensions as your stock housing so you can plug and play!

Here it is! Ruffstuff Toyota 8" front axle housing that fits years 79-85. This set up uses your factory axle shafts from your stock axle. The price includes everything in the photo except the knuckle balls, all you need to do is ship us yours and we will weld them on. (Please read info below before you cut your old knuckle balls off and send them to us.) We also include the U-bolts, spring plates, and 4 5/8" grade 8 bolts for the diff side. This housing is Grade A beef! If you choose not to have the shock brackets installed in the stock location give us a yell and we can change that.




Notes:
•If you have Toyota front IFS hubs it will add 1 1/2" per side (3" total) on your wheel mount surface and you can still use your stock axle shafts.

•This housing has a larger tube diameter than factory and our 1/4" thick spring perch adds height to the spring mounting height. Using this axle it will add a 1/2" of lift over your factory axle.

•Toyota E-locker 3rd members will not work with this housing due to the limited space on the faceplate. It will interfer with the passenger side leaf spring.




Like every axle housing we make, our Toyota 8” IFS Housing comes with the following features:


•A 3/8” thick faceplate machined flat and drilled for third member hardware AFTER welding to ensure a perfectly flat mounting surface and exact mounting hole location.

•An almost round ¼” bend plate outer shell. We say “almost” round because each of the shell pieces is made of 14 individual bends rather than being stamped round (which is the cheap and easy way.) We could do it the other cheap and easy way by only using a few bends but we don’t do that either! Instead, we do it the best way: the bends reinforce each other and add rigidity that you do not get from a round housing while the large number of bends hugs the ring gear as tight as possible making our center sections some of the lowest profile in the industry

•3.5” x 3/8” wall structural DOM tubes which offer the perfect balance between strength, toughness, weight, and ground clearance. You won’t be denting or wearing through these axle tubes! The tube keys in to the faceplate and has gusseting within the center section so it is completely supported on all sides.

•¼” thick internal gusseting tying every housing component together for maximum strength and EVERY piece of the housing is welded to at least three other components!

•Oversized 1.25” fill/inspection plug so you can check oil level and the condition of your ring gear without dropping the third member. The plug has a knurled finish for quick and tool-less removal as well as an o-ring seal to prevent oil from leaking out or dust and water from leaking.

•Top-notch USA craftsmanship by our team of highly-skilled professional fabricators. Every housing is completely hand built, welded, and machined in-house. No robots, no imports, no gimmicks!!

We have made many FJ40/45/55/60 housings like these also but we are still working on the plan to produce them so you Cruiser guys keep watching

A housing that will not smile or frown at you, but rest assured it's having a good time.
