1995-2004 Tacomas have c-channel frames that are notorious for bending and cracking. The c-channel frame also contributes to axle wrap and wheel hoop at the rear axle. Toyota?s answer to this issue was to box in and reinforce the frame on the newer 05-09 Tacoma?s and FJ Cruisers. Our solution is our Taco Rear Frame Reinforcement Plates.
1995-2004 Tacomas have c-channel frames that are notorious for bending and cracking. The c-channel frame also contributes to axle wrap and wheel hop at the rear axle. Trail-Gear?s answer to this problem is to box in and reinforce the inside of the frame. Our Tacoma Rear Frame Box Kit comes with two 3/16 inch thick plates that will completely box in the frame, and two pieces of DOM tubing. One tube is used for reinforcement and the other tube is used as an upper shock mount. The upper shock mount tube comes with metal sleeves and all the necessary hardware.
Even the strongest frames need reinforcing when rock crawling and rock racing are your hobbies, that is why Trail Gear is now offering our Rock Defense Front Frame Support Kits for 79-85 Trucks, and 86-95 trucks and 4runners. These Rock Defense Front Frame Reinforcement Kits are precision laser cut from 3/16 inch thick steel and can easily be welded onto the outside of each side of the frame to provide extra strength to a frame that has been torched, welded, and hammered on over and over. Each kit includes two frame plates, one for each side. Kit is shipped unpainted and lightly oiled.
If you plan on doing or have already performed a solid axle conversion on your early model '95 1/2 to 2004 Tacoma, then you will need our Taco Frame Plate/IFS Box Mount kit. This kit not only provides your frame with a 3/16 inch steel brace from the VIN number stamp to the body mount, but incorporated into that brace is the strongest IFS box mount on the market. The box mount will allow you to install an IFS steering box from an '86-'95 1/2 Hilux Toyota while making your frame much stronger than stock and giving you a solid place to weld your shock hoops.
No matter if you are pre-running, rock crawling, or just mall crawling, your 95 1/2 to 2004 Tacoma frame is a weak link in an otherwise tough and dependable truck. The portion of your frame from the door to the front bumper is only about .095 inch thick, which is about 3/32 inch, or a little thicker than a nickel. That means that rocks, rust, dunes, or even curbs put your frame at risk of bending, cracking, or breaking.
