    FJ55 rear third member compatibility

    Thank you all. i recently ordered a 373HP Chevy 350 crate from blueprintengines.com with a holley sniper. I figured with the sniper kit, I’m @ at least 400HP more than I want or need. Will my stock fj55 drive train be ok? I’m on 33” Tires.

    FJ55 rear third member compatibility

    No that’s ok. That’s actually the whole reason I’m putting the ‘84 gears in because I want the 3.70 ratio. I’m using a TH350 3 speed trans in my fj55 and want good highway gearing. (I’m not wheeling this) I’m reading that I can drill my own holes or buy a multi hole flange. So that answers my...

    FJ 55 LS swap @ driveline questions.

    Thanks guys. I believe anything before 1978 is 4.11 course spline so I think I have 4.11 and I have 33’s i’d like to be able to do 75mph ok With the 3 speed. But i think I have the funds do LS swap if I decide that. 😬😬 I think my last question, is what are most people doing for the T-case if...

    FJ 55 LS swap @ driveline questions.

    cool, that’s helpful. I didn’t know if changing my axles was overkill or not for my purpose. I’ll keep them. I seriously have been going back and forth for days about whether I should do LS swap or not. I just bought the fj55. And it’s in great shape. If I don’t do LS, I like the sniper idea...
