I love Wheelin my 80

Keith, I know we had this conversation before, I don't think the difference is a FZJ versus a FJ or early or late model. After looking at the axle again, I now think the difference is ABS versus non ABS model. In this picture you can see the ears hold the ABS wire.nope; you should have gotten the flat bracket - not the V-shaped one that is for the later FZJ (vs FJ).
HOWEVER: a couple of my prototype guys ran that one on their early axles; they made fill plates and welded them in the voids and carried on. (That would be my suggestion since you've fully welded the bumper side already.)
The voids are the only difference between the two versions, btw. And I'm glad you posted this - it's a great example of the difference between the early and late factory mounts!
