    1976 FJ40 Full Disc Brake Conversion Ideas

    Yes I know that in '76 they did disc brakes for the first year on the front, but anyways, on my Toyota I don't really want to be doing drum brakes. They are a pain and just don't make sense to have. I want to get a whole disc brake conversion for the Toyota but the kits for all 4 rotors and...

    1976 FJ40 Mashup Restoration

    The aluminum isn't necessary because I'm from Manitoba. We use sand on our roads. Ontario uses salt. That's why no one likes to buy vehicles from Ontario. Because they are all rusted out from their salty roads. The frame is fine but the tub not so sure about it yet. Might have to replace it.

    1976 FJ40 Mashup Restoration

    The frame is not cracked or bent, just a bit rusty. New tubs are expensive so that's why I haven't bought one. I could just buy one from a solid body but there are none in my area. And the only one is a different year and model. I'm going to attempt to get all the rust off as possible and...

    1976 FJ40 Mashup Restoration

    You guys asked for pictures. Get ready for the rust... So here's the engine bay obviously. All of the front is in good condition but the fenders, we bought different ones to replace them and were fixing them up a bit. It's a mess at the moment. All of the wiring and everything is going to be...

    I guess then that's what I'll go with once I save up some cash. What tires do you recommend?

    1976 FJ40 Mashup Restoration

    I am still sticking with the 5 speed Mazda. I want it to be more of a daily driver. Plus the 4 speed that was originally in it just didn't suit what I wanted. It's not meant to be a super amazing trail truck. It's meant to be a daily and to go on some trails on the weekend. The engine is a 1996...

    Awesome thanks.

    Whats the best 4 inch lift kit?

    I'll look into that thanks. Not sure yet. I think 33s or 35s. It has some gross 33s on it at the moment and it's not lifted and I think it looks like trash. But I hope a lift would make it better. I'm still changing the rooms and tires yet. I'm most likely going with 33s for a bit better fuel...

    I will send you pics tomorrow I forgot to mention that it also has a transfer case. I don't know if that changes what you think on the un reliability. I personally don't think we'll have a problem with it.

    I know this is a very old thread but how is your experience with the HFS lift? I'm interested in doing one myself.

    Whats the best 4 inch lift kit?

    So I want to get a 4 inch lift for my 1976 FJ40 and there are many brands but I'm not sure what is the best one, I want to get good quality without breaking the bank. What parts do I all need for a lift kit anyway? I see skyjackers a lot but I'm not sure if they are good or not. What about...

    Hi, I'm new here and I'll tell you about my Toyota. So we bought it in 2018 and we've only started to progress on it now since summer. Its a rusty pos at the moment but once we put the new sheet metal in it will be fine. This FJ is very interesting though because its unlike any other. So the...
