Default Ford 9" to take care of biz.

Well I'm not going to wait for my second rear end to blow up in the back of the Tacoma so I went ahead and picked up a Ford 9". As far as rear ends are concearned the 9" has great clearance and there is no way I could break it. Parts are cheap for them and they are everywhere so that will be really nice as I'm rebuilding it. The drum brakes should be more than adequate and won't force me to change out the master cylinder.
Maybe someday I might put some disc brakes on it for looks but it really doesn't weight enough and the factory Toyota disc brakes have never even needed new brake shoes. Tacomas have some of the best brakes ever.
