I just recently got a 1979 Toyota Sunrader.. Planning on swapping out the 1/2 ton rear axle for a 1 ton full floating axle.. My only problem is Im not quite sure where to start.. If I get a newer axle, will I be able to convert it to fit my older model? Any suggestion on what to get an axle of of (make, model,ect)m Thanks in advance.

great find Derek. Almost identical to my experience swapping in a 1 ton axle on 1985/6 Sunrader the only difference was that driveshaft mounting was fine no needed mods. I had to have new bracket plates with shock mounts custom fabbed, custom Ubolts made etc to accommodate larger axle tube.
