Default want new axles......?

hello i have an 88 samurai, and am wanting to put toyota axles in, as these are the bigger axle i hear that are usually put in sammis. although i am not sure what kind of toyota i can get the axles out of. and am still wondering how hard this will end up being. i have access to a toyota rear axle that is perfectly fine in good working shape out of a first gen 4 runner, but i just wanna make sure i get both axles right i belive if im not mistaking the 4 runner axle has 4.56s?? thanks for any help

4 runners usually have 4.10 like the pick ups some have 4.30 but I'm not an expert on which trucks had these. I believe they were some automatic trans models. One nice thing about the Toy axle is the dropout center section is the same front or rear on the soild axle trucks. People usually look for the 84/85 version of the front because of the longer gusset along the bottom

Axles from 1980-1985 Toyota pickup are the common swap. 1984-1985 4Runner used the same I believe. There are kit's available from vendors to make swapping the axles over very easy if you can weld.
