    I need to know if a disc brake backing plate from an 83 Toy mini is the same as that of my 77 FJ40. Mine got chewed up and I've located one online from a guy, but want to know if it will bolt up the same with no problems. If anyone has any insight on this I'd appreciate it. ???

    Do you know if the calipers are the same? As far as location of mounting holes, etc?

    The mounting holes are identical. The location of the brake line bracket is slightly different IIRC, but the hardware fits. The calipers are different, mainly due to the cruiser having vented rotors
