    Welcome the the frequently asked questions about the Fj40 and Fj45. As Fj55's share a fair amount of components, there may be some links to posts involving 55 series.

    The FAQ will be locked, but the topics that are linked to will still be open, so if new info comes up, or someone has a better way to do something, you can continue the discussion in that particular post.

    If there are a number of good posts on the topic, the link you follow from here will contain an index of these posts . Hopefully that will keep this post less cluttered.

    Clear as mud eh?

    if you have any suggestions, or want to recommend a topic to include in the FAQ, or a post with good Tech, PM me. If, for privacy reasons or whatever, you don't want you username given credit for any suggestions, please include that in your PM. :cheers:

    Hopefully this section will help.



    A good place to start with any project (SOA, Onboard Air, Engine swaps, and Front End Rebuilds, welding diffs Etc) is


    IH8MUD Tech Links

    A N D


    Tech Triva (Which is now a part of the Land Cruiser Wiki) This will include specifics on axles, trans and tcases, driveshafts, special parts, such as SPEEDI SLEEVES etc...

    ===================================================
    Also, for those Cruiserheads who are working on restoration-type projects and have specific questions regarding the history and accuracy of their projects, we suggest you check into the specific group forums for your vehicle.


    FJ25 Owners Group

    FJ45 Owners Club

    FJ55 Iron Pig Preservation Society


    Please use these sections only for those oddball items relevent to these rigs....tech issues on engine, transmission, axle, and other mechanical concerns should remain here in the Tech section, since these are universal to all early models of Land Cruisers.
