    Horn relay location

    saw that pic and it made me even MORE confused... what 40 do you know of that ships from the factory with dual batteries. Also, this has to be a Right hand drive fj in that the brake booster is on the wrong side :) so, maybe I should re-ask the question... anyone with a Left hand drive...

    Horn relay location

    Actually a bit embarrassed to even ask this question… did the frame off, been wheeling it for about 2-3 years… street legal as far as the DMV is concerned… never quite figured out how to put the horn wiring back together :D The other day a lady cut me off and I was SO PISSED and had no...

    removing axle shafts

    See link below for diagram: There should be a bolt (see #12 in diagram) on the side of the carrier (#11) holding the center pin (#13) & retainer (#14) in place... when you remove #12 you can slide #13 out the bottom (some diffs have grinding done on the gears so you need to look for where it...

    FJ55 & FJ40 rear axle shaft compatibility

    Will the rear axle shafts from a 75 FJ55 (no races on shaft version) work in a 73 FJ40 (races on the axle shafts version). Some say that the bearing size is different on these but I would really like to know the answer to this BEFORE I need them on the trail

    Seeking Wisdom

    for the removal I did it myself... not a good idea but it was late & needed it done... for the install where you do not want the bottom you just painted to get messed up use at least 4 guys. one suggestion, drop the wheels so you are only lifting waist high... much easier.

    Highway speeds

    First of all, that flat windshield makes it a bit scary to go over 65 anyway... that being said, I found out how to make mine go over 55 :D :D :D a) RamJet 350 b) SM465 c) 38.5 x 14.5 swampers d) A GOOD radiator & ladder bar Kind of a waste to throw this at trying to go slow but the FI works...

    radiator, snorkel & nose guard

    the bars that come down in front did NOT come with the kit... I just put those together in that I did not want the nose guard to fold if I did an endo or hit it wrong (just adds more support to the solution). Would have been nice to know what winch I was going to install so I could have done...
