    Tires depends on you’re needs. Do you drive more on dry pavement or wet or snow or mud and how much off-roading will you be doing.

    Is it too late to tell you to take off the diff drop garbage??? You won’t find many people on here that support the installation of this diff drop kit.

    Haven’t placed the order yet. Is there a reason why? Even if mine is a 4x4?

    I am using the diff drop that came with the Toytec Boss kit. Why would you NOT use it as part of the complete kit?

    Yes, even if you are 4x4. I ran a similar Toytec kit as you are looking at for many years problem free after throwing that diff drop kit in the scrap pile.

    Many people have had issues with these diff drop kits; vibrations, bearing issues, (changing the angle of the diff rotates the oil level away from the pinion bearing and the ring gear does not sling oil on the bearing), the CV angles aren’t corrected enough for me personally to justify changing OE hardware, and with bump stop/ limit strap corrections and the correct ride height your factory axles will not be stressed anyhow.

    The Toytec diff drop is specifically made for the kit. Why would a manufacturer add it if not needed or more importantly do damage? That makes no sense to me.

    There’s so many threads on these things, here and TW. Do your own research, learn from your own experiences, draw your own conclusions and pass along what you’ve learned when asked. Have a great day!

    That’s what the forums are for. Asking questions from people that’s been there and sharing your experiences that can help someone else.
