    FJ40 Hi lift jack front bumper mount options?

    Actually, the Hi-Lift sits pretty flush with the fender and step; so, if you you are going to hit something, it will hit first the fender and then the Hi-Lift. Besides, due that the jack mount is attached to the windshield hinge point, it makes it a pretty good bush guard.

    Disc Brake Master Cylinder and Booster Compatability

    Australian?? Ok, as your Cruiser is an Australian model, they didn't come with disc brakes 'till 80's, so, my advise, get a single reservoir out of a 60 or 62 series and you can use your booster but you will probably to either used shims between the booster and the master cylinder or cutting...

    finally!! got my new 40!!

    Nice !!! Really nice and original Cruiser, I know you already ordered the 4" lift but, a suggestion, is better the 2 1/2 from OME and extra 1 1/2 shackles on it, better ride and more stable, however, it looks pretty good. Congrats !!!
