    67 mild to wild?

    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...

    1974 FJ40 disc brake drag with front FJ60 conversion

    Mod or New rims?

    So I got a stock FJ40 15x5.5 rim from a mudder and just realized my original set is riveted and has no bead lock(little hump). Can I even run tubeless tires without tubes or they most likely going to keep popping the bead if I even attempt to run them lower psi? Since I was prepping them for...

    64 fj40 disc brake conversion

    Just purchased a 64 fj40 with SBC and power steering already done. But with the plan to run 33's or bigger the brakes also have to be done. Based on my research so far on this site it looks like the best option is to source a complete front axle assembly from a 74-79 fj60 that already has discs...

After reading until my eyes bulged out about disc brake conversions (I have a '66 FJ40 with ball and claw) I decided just to hunt down a stock disc axle. I recently placed my order for a stock FJ40 disc brake axle for about...
