I called them and they are sending it out this morning.

Just a little FYI for anyone. and thanks again Michael!

There is a new part # N2-83-288X that is for Toyota. The one I have has more than 1 hole pattern in the flange end. It also has 2 pilot diameters a small (Toyota) and large (Ford). They just make one part that fits both.

yeah i could have done that. if they had good junk yards around here it wouldnt be a problem but all the ones around here think everything is new, so new price comes with it.

yeah i know i just don't know which axle to use...

Waggy axle would work but its low pinion.

78-79 F150 D44 Would work but i would have to get new axle tubes because of the C notches...

I want a high pinion D44, i plan on just buying upgraded TJ brackets so i can use the same front arms, shock setup, coils...

then new steering and trac bar....

get a 78-79 F250 d44 (its 8 lug). It is identical to a 78-79 bronco with out the wedges. or get a 1976 f150 housing, which has weld on wedges.

you have to remember though that HP44 are all Fullwidth, they dont make a narrow HP44.

hrrrmmmmmm....so the new part numbers that hosse posted is the same flange, just drilled for a Toyota correct? If so then I could just drill out the flange for the ford pattern. If thats the case, there is a flange 5 miles away from me suckas. :)

hehehe

Even if I have to drill out a new set of holes, no biggy, like you mentioned, beats having to buy a SL shaft.

Bought my flange today from Six States Distributors. Part #N2-83-288X. It was nice having one of them 5 minutes away from where I live. I bought the only one in Utah's inventory, the only one left on their website is located out of Idaho.

Looks like the flange is drilled for both flange patterns, so this is going to make the drive shaft conversion easy.

Is it the same as the one in the pics that Zach posted. I can't find any info on that part number. At the Drive Line Service Co. website where I got mine I found that number was replacing the N2-83-287x.

Yup. On the box it even says "replaces part number N2-83-287X"
