I am trying to stay as stock as possible! Have built and installed a Orion case, am keeping the 2f anf the only option I see for a trans is an H41. I understand a 350 is more HP, but I want to stay Toyota...this being said I am also going with saginaw and an SOA. Am I over thinking, or will I be good with this set up?

Also, my lights are a-holes!

if you want to stay "stock" then you need a toyota p/s and i guess you can argue SOA is more stock than replacing the springs but you greatly modify the TOYOTA suspension.
and you CAN get a h55f and get a very low crawl the h41 is by no means your only option hell theres the 3spd auto out of 62 and 80s + all those super cool rigs not offered in the states all have "toyota" parts you can use to build a "toyota" 40

but writing all this makes me ask... isnt "staying stock" a completly different argument than "keeping it toyota" what really are you going for??

The A440F auto transmission out of a FJ62 and FJ80 are four speed overdrive transmissions. Just like the H55F five speed the rear drive line starts to get real short behind any F engine in the FJ40 wheel length. I plan to put a A440F in one of my cruisers but it's a FJ45LPB so the length wouldn't be a problem.:cheers:

Another thing if he already has a Orion transfer case it's not just going to bolt up to a A440F or H55F.

Keeping it Toyota would have been the proper term. So that answers the thread title! Looking through the classsifieds it seems that a lot of people are going with GM parts. I know of a 40 in Utah that has no running gear, no rust and Chevy axles. I dont know how it is configured, but it was offered to me free. About a 2 hour drive.

With all the parts I will have from a donor vehicle and this one I am going to pick up I am considering building 2. One stockish and one keeping it toyota.

If you can't keep it stock, keep it Toyota. If you can't do either of these, go buy a jeep.

stock/toyota/highly modified i think just having a loose starting point of a cruiser makes it different from a jeep.
if you replace everypart on a car is it the same car? my .02 the idea of that vehicle is still there, even if none of the parts are.

so no i dont think you are a tool


(you are only a tool when you listen to other peoples ideas and value what they think over how you feel about it) my cruiser will always be a cruiser no matter what i do/change/replace
:cheers:
