    New 1983 D50 4D55 owner

    I am going to be finally picking up my 1983 4D55 truck this next weekend. I have several questions so I'll line them out. Looking for answers from either Mike or 4D55Performance.

    -What year montero exactly do I need front control arms from for the front lift?

    -What's the year or part number for the rear Toyota shackles to raise the rear?

    -With both of those items could I run 29" tall tires without major rubbing issues? If not how tall?

    -Where can I source the 12mm plunger plate for my injection pump?

    -Has anyone successfully swapped Jeep Cherokee axles into a D50? Running a HP Dana 30 in the front and the 35 in the rear?

    -Where can I source a bushing kit for this truck? It's been sitting a long time and I'm sure it needs new rubber.

    -Has anyone successfully installed a TD04-13T on a 4D55? That's the turbo I'm thinking of running. Or at a minimum a TD04-11B.


    Thanks in advance for the help. If someone wants to call me to discuss I would appreciate the ability to phone someone who is knowledgeable and has experience working on these things.

    Jeff

    Do you have the wastegated td04-9b or non wastegated tc05-10a?
    12mm plunger I cannot answer but I think the pump has to be bored for it

    you will need the td04 hotside, and probably the intake manifold from the wastegated truck, i believe the d55 like the d56 mounts the wastegate on the intake manifold.

    You can however, upgrade your TC05 to a TD05 turbo direct clamp into your hotside, though td05 is a little limited to a stock starion 12a, or a "custom" turbo. If you get the housing bored a few MM you can use td05h and there are a lot more options. i keep watching for a tc05 to pop up to use to upgrade from my restrictive td04
