    Finally got the toybox and split case installed. After delay and delay, it is in and working great. I picked this setup from spaceghost on IH8MUD. It is Toybox # 001. My current setup is:

    SBC 350
    SM465
    Toybox and Split case
    Stock axles/ Welded rear, Lockrite Front
    Stock springs sprung over
    Saginaw PS
    Disc Brakes all around

    Soon I will be installing a HP FZJ80 Electric Locker High Pinion up Front.

    Here are some pics as it sits right now.

    That looks awsome. The stance of your FJ is exactly what I am going for with mine. SOA, Stinger, winch, flares and MTR's.

    Great job, and congrats on getting her back out.

    Thanks. Next I am putting a mini truck axle under the front with a fxj80 electric locker. Want to be a little different. I can go 70mph down the road with no problems.

    Why exactly? As of now you have redundancy in parts, this is a good thing, I would not go mini axle front unless it was coupled with mini rear also. Not to mention paper think weak housing. Unless you find great need in having a high pinion, which is cool.

    I got good deal on a hi pinion e locker and housing the has been trussed. Its something different. Everyone always has the same stuff. The hi pinion will be plenty strong enough and so will the housing when I get done with it.
