I got mine from Dan Martz. He’s out. Any of the guys bringing in the 79 truck beds will have them. I bet they are still available and cheap via @partsouqDefinitely a slick looking tire mount. I suspect I'll have to do something similar when I move up to 235/85-16s as my 235/75-15 spare barely fits in the stock location. Mind sharing where you picked that one up?
Absolutely it would. It really makes these trucks fun to drive to bring in a “modern” late drivetrain. The split case is my favorite mod. It really makes it so smooth and quiet paired with a finely tuned 2FSeriously man, you make a 2F look incredibly sexy. I don't know if anyone has ever uttered that phrase, but I stand by it. I'd love to experience what one of these motors with a Sniper kit on it feels like. I think it would probably deter a lot of motor swaps.
You should do the PowerSurge I have 3 of them and they are the easiest....especially for a tank with that much hassleSeeing your in tank pump set-up is inspiring me to do the same on my Sniper system. Not looking forward to pulling the cage to do it though. Oh and swapping to a steel tank from poly. Hmmm.... I guess I could use this opportunity to powder coat the cage though.
So clean under there you could eat lunch ...!There are a couple of options when adding a split case. Source a 2F 40 bellhousing and let it hang (short version only) or build a crossmember.
In the past I’ve modified the center section of a 3 piece pre 85 60 series crossmember.
This time, I had a 62 crossmember in the house and a new isolator would went to make it work
This turned out to a lot more work but I pressed on.
I had to drill and cut the isolator holes out for the wider bolts

Then I had to put the crossmember up and measure width then it came back out to cut it to width

Then I got some flat plate and made my frame mounts. Tons of grinding and drilling later and it’s all in place to burn it to the frame.

To close this question.....the 85-87 FJ60 bellhousing uses a short little push rod on the slave. Lou came up in his 86 and I was able to see first hand.Tech question
The three 2F bellhousings I have here on other trucks use the little triangle thing that offsets the slave a cylinder to the bellhousing.

On this truck it looks like the slave needs to stay in line with the existing bolts but it needs to go horizontal away from the fork.
Is there a Toyota bracket for this? If not I guess I can make one
