Trail-Gear is proud to introduce "The Strongest Samurai Axle Housing
The Samurai Rock Assault™ Axle Housing is a Toyota IFS
width axle housing that is offset for a Samurai t-case. This housing
features a heavy-duty, press formed, 1/4" plate steel center section
shell that 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 and comes with our Differential Stud
Eliminator Kit to ensure that your differential never pulls out of the
housing. The outer offset flanges are made from 4130 chromoly to
prevent distortion or bending. Axle tubes are made from 1/4” thick DOM
tubing, with a 3” outer diameter.
This exclusive design features axle tubes that have been offset
above the housing center-line. 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 center section is
offset to line up with the Samurai t-case so that your drive-line does
not vibrate from being offset.
The Samurai Rock-Assault axle housings use stock or aftermarket
1986-1995 Toyota Pickup/4Runner brake backing plates and brake
assemblies and uses a custom length chromoly axle shaft that Trail-Gear
is also very proud to manufacture. The Samurai Rock-Assault axle
housings also use a Toyota 8" differential. An optional fill/inspection
cap can be installed for an additional fee.
Overall housing length is 51 1/2 inches from mounting flange to
mounting flange. Axle is shipped unpainted and lightly oiled to prevent
rusting. We recommend degreasing housing inside and out before
installation and painting.
Note: For an additional $79, we will install the inspection hole kit in the location shown.
