Hello all!
I’m new to the forum but I’ve owned these two FJ’s going on 12 years. The blue rig is the 67 and I’m ready to dig into it. I live in South Carolina so hard core rock crawling isn’t common. Most of the wheeling we do is dirt roads and swampy land. I plan to use the 40 for running around town with the kids and enjoying it off road. The wish list is:
LS/vortec
5 speed manual
Accompanying transfer case
SOA
Power steering
Disc breaks
37”-40” tires
My question to the group is what the best route to make this happen? I need to know exactly what engine, transmission, and transfer case to be looking for. I’m new to swaps, but I’ve been doing a ton of research but the more I dig in the more I just don’t know which direction to go. I need your wisdom!
Thanks!

SOA isn't great on the road, but it can be very acceptable if done right. I'd check out @A10Driver's mustard build if you are looking for SOA, 37's, and a 5.3.

I have a few fun engine swap ideas, but they aren't exactly user-friendly, yet. The 5.3, or even a 4.8 is a great candidate, and are very well-known swaps.

Also, both your bezels are upside down :flipoff2::flipoff2:

Axles on the '67 most likely will fail hard with your intended tires. My '66 didn't like 33s and a stock 350.
