Trail-Gear Rock Assault Axle Housings
Rock Assault™ Front Axle Housing
Suits Toyota Hilux
Trail-Gear is proud to introduce the newest addition to the Rock Assault™ Axle Housing family, our Rock Assault™ Front Axle Housing. This exclusive axle design is the first in the industry to be released with all new parts. That's right, our axle housing is not made with 30-year-old used knuckle balls. Our knuckle balls are forged from 1035 steel, making them much stronger than stock, eliminating closed or bent knuckle balls.
The axle tubes have been offset above the housing centerline, so the inner axles ride near the bottom of the axle tubes rather than in the center. The result is an increase of 3/8" in ground clearance under the axle tubes. The axle tubes are made from 5/16" thick 1020 DOM tubing with an outer diameter of 3". The short side of the axle tube has been lengthened by 3", making the axle IFS width, so there is no need to run wheel spacers. A 27 or 30 spline short side chromoly axle shaft will be supplied with the axle housing.
The heavy-duty, press formed, 1/4" plate steel center section is shaved to give you 3/4" of additional ground clearance under the differential. The differential mounting surface is made from 1/2" plate steel to ensure studs can not pull out, even under heavy loads. Our housings are precision alignment checked using start-of-the-art, 3D digital imaging equipment to ensure that all Rock Assault™ Axle Housings are 100% straight and true.
The Rock Assault™ Front Axle Housing will come in your choice of bare tubes, with spring perches installed, or 3-link ready with a panhard bracket included. For an additional charge we can install an inspection cap making inspecting your front ring and pinion a breeze. Axle housing is shipped unpainted and lightly oiled to prevent rust during shipping and storage.

Note; when using a Rock Assault™ Front Axle Housing with our Front 3-Link Kit, you cannot use hi-steer.

The axle tubes are now made from 5/16" thick, high strength DOM tubing and engage 5/8" farther into the center section. On top of that, there is a 360° gusset welded around the tubes on the inside of the housing to ensure unparalleled strength.
Trail-Gear introduces a new concept to the axle housing design. This exclusive design features axle tubes that have been offset above the housing centerline. The inner axles ride near the bottom of the axle tubes rather than in the center. The results are an increase of 3/8" ground clearance under the axle tubing.
The heavy-duty, press formed, 1/4" plate steel center section shell is specially shaped to ensure a minimum of 3/4" additional clearance under the differential. The differential mounting surface is made from ˝” plate steel to ensure studs can not pull out, even under heavy loads. The outer offset flanges are made from 4130 Chromoly to prevent distortion or bending. Housings are precision aligned using start-of-the-art, 3D digital imaging equipment.
The Rock-Assault™ axle housings use stock or aftermarket 1986-1995 Toyota Pickup/4Runner axle shafts. An optional fill / inspection cap can be installed for an additional fee.
Overall housing length is 51 3/8" mounting flange to mounting flange. Empty housing is 54 lbs. Includes drain plug. Spring perches, shock mounts, and vent not included. Differential stud kit and RTV silicone are included and are recommended for use with this axle. Unpainted bare-metal, oiled finish to prevent rusting. We recommend that you degrease the housing inside and out before installation and painting.
The original design concept for this axle was created by Jason (Locktup) Stanley. This rugged, high clearance design proved to be extremely tough and helped Team Trail-Gear win first place in the 2007 We-Rock F-Toy Series. Thanks Jason!
