    My 75 fj40 has a mini truck conversion by the previous owner. Which inner axle is typically used the mini or the FJ40? Are they the same lengths? Just curious. I should have measured them when I had everything a part :doh:

    if you have a cruiser front axle with a minitruck disc conversion, the inner axles are still the FJ40 length.

    Yup, Woodys the man.... ;)

    Any disc/drum FJ40 axle will have the same inner axles (assuming 30 spl. at the diff)... regardless of the dic conversion uses (assuming Toyota parts used)

    The Minitruck disk brake conversion uses minitruck knuckles and birfields, but retains the stock FJ40/55 inner axle. The mini inners are about 1" longer. I saw this page right after I read your post and though "Hey somebody just asked about this!"

    Negative...

    The mini long side is ~2.5" longer than the 40/45 and the short side is ~1" shorter than the 40/45.

    :D
