Howzit, :thumbup:
Any more pics?
I have a '98 IFS d/c 4x4 also with 1UZ conversion. Ran the 5l originally. Still with original 5 speed manual box, I am currently busy with some drive train fettling. Diff ratios are way too high. (3600 - 3700rpm @122km/h *gps*) Looking at bringing them down to 4.11.

Just curious to know if you guys stayed with the original diff ratios or changed them out?

My headache is that the rear axle is the import type, so can't find spares. trying to source one with a turnd out centre portion that will take the 4.11 setup.
