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.
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
It's got the stock TC05 right now
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.

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
