full floater rear toyota axle

A buddy of mine was telling me that you can convert a rear toyota axle to full floating and have hubs on your rear. He said this makes it easy to swap out broken axles on the trail as well. Any body got any info on this? Sounds interesting. Would allow for a spool with a single hub locked for street driving.
Just curious...

Front Range Offroad sells a kit for Toy rear axles. I have a Four Wheeler or Petersons mag that has the install in it too.

I don't think I would either, I think I might try to do the disc brake swap on the back of my Toy axles, but I still have to look into that. $ permitting too.

The rear disk swap dosen't look to bad. Looks a lot less involved than the sami version. I'm thinking about that myself since I'm going to have to replace everything back there anway. Rears are frozen and not working.

What makes you think your going to brake a rear Toyota axle??
No way would I spend the money for full float Toy axle.

Rear disk brakes are the way to go if your looking for easy axle replacing.
Not that your going to brake a rear Toy axle anyhow.

I've only seen two rear toy axles brake and both were V8 powered trucks.

I don't think I will be breaking them really. I was just trying to get some info on the full floater as I really didn't know much about it.

Ive got the Front Range Offroad FF kit. 4140 chromoly axles, disk brakes. Along with a V6 third member it's just about as strong a set up as you can get with a toyota rear end. I used the flange plates from an FZJ80 with it instead of hubs. I had no desire to unlock the rear end and the flange plates are stronger. Ive always liked the idea that the axle now ONLY is responsible for the drive stresses of the vehicle, and not carrying the weight of the vehicle too.
