    I was just wondering if anyone has tried, or knows more about putting a FZJ-80 rear full floating axle in the rear of an FJ-62? I know the fzj-80 axle is a little wider but are there any other problems? Are the 3rd members compatible?

    The diffs are compatable and you could make it work. I would wait until a non us 60-62 rear end goes on sale. Without diff they were under $400 and bolt right in. just my .02

    The driveshaft should just bolt in. Need the parking brake cable and handle off the 80. Need 16" wheels or grind the calipers. Get rid of brake residual pressure valve on the rear circuit or use a non ABS 80 master. Of course spring perches.
