Chromoly Rear Axles

Does anyone know where I can get some good quality chromoly rear axles for my 2001 Toyota Tacoma TRD locking rear differential 4X4 non-ABS.

Not trail-gear, but others likely make them. Might have to be custom drilled. One of these manufacturesr may be able to get some for you, they just need to be drilled differently.

Pros: More strength
Cons: Less money in your pocket, not really needed until you are running big power, you have a bent shaft that needs to be replaced anyways, or you are running big tires (or drag slicks)

Or if your 1/4 mile time will be 10.99 or faster, then NHRA requires you to have an aftermarket axle & can't use the stock axle.
