My Mazda to Toyota solid axle swap is basically finished. I'll have to get some new springs as these used ones are pretty tired. I'll be going to a little larger tire before this winter.
Huge thanks to my friend John Rowling at Rowlin's Garage and Fabrication in LaGrange for all of the help with this project, there's no way I could have done it without him!

I added a couple more leaves to the front packs to take care of the negative arch and add 3" blocks to the rear to level it out. I'll eventually replace the front and rear leaf springs with Old Man Emu.

Looks sharp. How does it drive and how does it flex now? Any issues with front axle tramp?
. Thanks! It drives great, I haven’t been anywhere to flex it yet but I can tell just by putting a jack under one side of the axle that it’s far better than stock.
Axle tramp?

I've replaced the front springs with OME's and added some extended shackles to the rear.

I made some rock rails....





Swapped 4.90 R&P from a Montero Sport into my Montero locked rear axle...
