View Full Version : 4Runner/Truck V6 Rear Diff

Stronger than the 4 cyl diff, and good easy replacement. Will need re-geared as it is a bizarre ratio of 3.07. Clean and well serviced. Ready for a gear swap upgrade!

That is not a V6 carrier in there. That is a 4cyl two-pinion carrier based on the pics. The housing looks V6(sort of).

Is that maybe an 8" from a 1 ton 2WD? That would explain the 3.07 ratio, too. Or maybe from a 3rd gen 4Runner 2WD? Sure doesn't look like either a '79-'95 4-cylinder or V6 4x4 diff.

The case is at least a V6. I have had it sitting around for a while. It is possible it is a 2wd 1-ton as they had the V6 housing and obviously different gears to accommodate the smaller tires. I do have some other 2wd 1-ton parts around the garage. In any case, it is what it is... Stronger case and odd-ball ratio. Thanks for pointing it out!
