    An adapter hub most-likely....... post up a link as to the target...........

    The Fj60 wheel is a nice up grade and still maintains the oem feeling........

    note: a small mod will be needed to retain turn sig. cancel function......

    x2. Power steering is a must with a smaller steering wheel.

    I've got a little chrome 3 spoke wheel/foam grip type.....No power steering....and I like it....Not too bad to steer with....although I'm not trying to steer over rocks and I don't have large tires which both would be a reason for power steering...So, depends on your tires and what you do with it I guess......

    I have power steering and kept my large stock 1972 Toyota wheel. Looks awesome to me.

    Kind of right there with you, Flash, though I do use a wheel from a later 40 on my '71 (cracked the original before power steering). I only contemplated going with a smaller wheel when I was 30 lbs. heavier than I am now.:steer:
