We are going to run a awesome special on these diff brackets along with the matching bash plates in the lead up to Tuff Truck 2013, 12-14 April.


The Diff Relocation Bracket Kit has a RRP of $595, and the price is usually $550 for forum members, plus freight.


The bash plates are $475 for the Front Bash Plate and the Dropped diff bash plate as a package.


We will be offering the for $895 as a complete diff drop kit until Tuff Truck.


With freight it's a saving of just on $200.


We can deliver them to you or you can pick them up at Tuff Truck if you are planning on coming down.


Here are is the Diff Relocation Kit:

Cheers,

Hey Fellas,

We have an awesome new product that will really help take some of the nasty angle out of your CV's if you are running any kind of suspension lift over 2".

The MR REKON Diff Relocation Brackets form part of the new REKON IFS Solution for 05+ Hilux, you can see the the full package on this thread:
http://www.newhilux.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=8258

This diff relocation kit will be off interest as a stand alone product to anyone with 2" or more suspension lift.

This is the basics of the kit:

3 Diff brackets which replace the factory items.
They are a direct replacement and you use the original factory bolts and bush from the rear bracket.

Image


And some photos of them installed: (Thanks to Monaz and Twisty for posting these photo's in their sheds and build thread)


Image


Image


Image


Image


Image



So here are the CV angles of a truck with 3.5" of lift after the REKON diff relocation kit install:


Image


Image


These photo's show the improvement on Twisty's truck with 3" lift,

Before MR REKON - With 1" Spacers only
Image

After with MR REKON - Big Improvement!
Image


So this kit will RRP for $600.

We will offer this kit to NewHilux members for $550.


Basically we drop the diff down an inch, but also move it forward to relieve some of the CV angle.
Note... We do not move the wheel forward, as the axle position/stub axle do not move.


So we have limited stock of these kits on hand now, and once these sell out we will have them back in stock around the end of January... hoping to have them sooner, but things move slow early in the year!

These diff drop relocation brackets will also be complemented by our extended ball joints, see this thread for more info:
http://www.newhilux.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=8223
These extended ball joints are $250 delivered, but if you combine them with a diff relocation bracket kit we will send them both for $750.

So if you have problems with your CV angle, drop us a line and we will send you out a diff kit to solve your problems.


Cheers
Matt

3.5" of Lift and near flat cv angles......GOTTA BE A GREAT THING. This will help heaps cv strength and durability when offroading especially when using a front locker compared to angled cv's doing the same......

Awesome work yet again matty ;)

G'day fellas,

First of all cheers to those that replied, Im really happy with how the truck has turned out so far. The MR Kit is really far beyond what I expected...I have uploaded a couple of photos to my shed from its first true test test to give you idea of its flex..as you can see, its a heck of alot better than standard.
One thing I havent mentioned yet, is that I am still running the standard toyota brake lines, I was deliberaltely trying to flex it up yesterday to see if they needed replacing? So far with the MR 3.5in lift the answer is no. There is plenty of tubing left for maybe another inch even...

Cheers guys.....

Yeah, we have found no need for any brake line upgrades until about 4.5" of lift.

Glad to hear your happy Monaz... we aim to please!

Cheers

Mate i believe Buddy is working on one!
Give it a few weeks and we should see a modifyed plate to suit this bracket. Yet Matty will confirm this once he sees the post.

Otherwise you can mod his existing plate like i have see my thread (viewtopic.php?f=41&t=6765&start=260), untill Bud has finished his of course than ill more than likely upgrade...

Yep, as Jack said we are currently working on this new bash plate to protect the dropped diff.

The prototype is pretty much finished so we now move to CAD, laser cutting, bending, welding and zinc.

We are hoping to have this to market in around 4 weeks.

I would suggest the answer is no.

eBay is and get on board with the REKON Army :twisted:

News flash.

We have limited stock of these brackets for $400 delivered.
Usual price is $550
They are the first version with the black bushes, not red as seen in the second run we did.
They are the ones from the pictures shown in this thread, exactly like this.

Image

We have this one batch to clear, so this price will stand on these until sold out.

We are also doing the new version of the extended ball joints for $150 when bought with this product.

Image

So $550 for the diff brackets and the ball joints delivered.
Usual price is $700.

PM or email to purchase.

Cheers
Matt
