This here is my 2001 SR5 2wd Toyota Tundra. Wanted to see if some guy on here had info on doing a straight axle conversion. Not trying to go crazy with 1ton axles. Just want a nice, different and bad ass tundra. I need info for front axles, breaks, steering shafts etc. trying to do the most bolt up parts with slight modifications as possible.
Also because my truck is 2wd, would a sequoia 4wd transfer case work and bolt up like the tundra 4wd transfercase? Would I need a 4wd ecu?

Bolt on and straight axle don't go together. I converted my 2wd 88 pickup to 4wd with a solid front axle. Even that is nowhere near bolt on. You have to commit once you plasma cut or grind the stock suspension mounting points off.

Best way forward probably is to pick up a 4wd truck that is cheaper than dirt due to rust or rear end accident damage. At least you can compare and contrast between the two and pull the right parts off the 4wd to put on yours.

This was asked in another thread it is literally cheaper to sell your truck and buy one already 4x4 than it is to convert. If you are dead set on converting look at salvage for a 4x4 you will ideally find one that has a good frame but has been rolled or rear ended head on is more likely to have damaged parts you will need. But the 2nd easiest way about this would be find one that needs a new cab and bed bolted to the frame.
