Thanks for the welcome , those tires on the 25 are 15" 40 rims with mud and snows,and stock hubcaps. The larger tires on the right are on my 1963/40.Archie 1962 FJ25 said:Another FJ25 with those big tires on stock wheels....!!
Which tires are those John?
Jim, I will be doing the opposite plan of attack on my front axles, an fj40 drum brake axle with 1958/25 stock wheels. My stock 1960 axles will be for sale. John PardiCruiser_Nerd said:Hey John!
Glad you made it here. (You passed the test. )
Might want to check those front wheels....with stock axles FJ40 rims need about 1/4" to 1/2" of spacers so they don't hit the tie rod. PO of mine left me with about 1/2 the wheel stud engaged in front.
Steve, the original color was a cream color like antique white, I don't know what color it will be yet, I have not checked the brakes, I'm going to use a later front axle with drums and 3.70 gears, and the rear will be a centered diff,40 brakes and 3.70 gears. 4/fj40's, 2/fj45 trucks, John PardiLandcruisersteve said:Hey John - welcome aboard!!
And, another green 25!! You're in good company. (Let's see some more pics of your rig.)
How are your brakes??
Looking at your TLCA#, you've obviously been into Cruisers for quite a while. What else do you have in the FJ department?
Out of curiosity, any particular reason you're not going with front disks if you're doing an axle swap anyway? (Or do you just happen to have a front drum axle laying around?)pardion said:I'm going to use a later front axle with drums and 3.70 gears, and the rear will be a centered diff,40 brakes and 3.70 gears.
Archie, merely owning a single FJ25 automatically earns you seasoned veteran status in my book.Archie 1962 FJ25 said:since I joined this forum still I feel like a newbie with just one cruiser "1962 FJ25"
1969 single circut no booster, drums will work fine on this 25, it will not be my Rubicon Trail rig, 63/40,64/45,66/45,69/40,70/40,73/40 John PardiLandcruisersteve said:Out of curiosity, any particular reason you're not going with front disks if you're doing an axle swap anyway?

Are you going to be swapping out the master cylinder also? Single circuit, dual w/ booster??
What years are your FJ40s?
That's the exact transplant I recently made on my 25. (And I believe LivingInThePast has it on one of his 25s as well.) That particular MC appears to work perfectly. It's the rest of the brake system giving me the fits.pardion said:1969 single circut no booster
