I would like to know more about this set up too.

I have no clue what rotor is used in the pic you quoted....but....yes, the toyota rotor is typically what is used on the 5 lug swap. If you get the hub machined like was done on nis720's, then you use the toy hub/rotor and the 720/HB caliper....which mounts to the factory mounts on the spindle.

v6 rotor for....?? the 5 lug swap. The toy doesn't have a v6 option. The v6 rotor is used with the stock 6 lug hub to get slightly bigger rotors to go with the 2 piston v6 caliper.....both items being HB parts.

Any idea what the rotor in the pic is from?

So out of curiosity, what kind of rotors are you using? I am doing 5 lug conversion on my truck with Z32 calipers. I don't know what rotors to use from what car. Thank you.
I am in the middle of doing this right now for my 620. I used the Z32 rotor with the center opened up and everything lined right up with the Z32 Caliper.

Did you put the rotor on the backside of the hub(captured)? Or over the front(non-captured)? Any pics?

Does anyone know if a 82 toyota 4wd rear end will work with a 96 2wd? I found one the other day but I am unsure about the 4wd part.

I used the 248mm Toyota rotors with the factory Nissan calipers. After machining the seats for bearing races closer together(I forget how much front and back now) all that was needed was a hardened shim on each mounting bolt of the caliper and it lined right up. The Nissan rotor is 249.5(250)mm and the yota is 248 so the amount of lost rotor that the caliper seees is only 1mm and if there was a thickness difference I couldn't tell, neither will the truck the yota bearings work on the Nissan spindle as well
