I bought the hooked piece from my local dealer not too long ago.
As for the crank handle, not sure where to get one. I am looking for one as well.

I took Jack’s advice and ordered the complete jack handle from my local dealership. This is what I received when we ordered it for a 78’ FJ40. I’m pretty sure the crank is for a newer vehicle but I don’t know about the other two pieces. They will at least work even if they are not period correct. Maybe Bill @wscbill can shed some light the subject?

Nolen I ordered them last week so they are definitely still available. I tried to get a clear picture of the part numbers so others might use them. With our club discount at the local dealership it was about $56.00 with tax.

Was the 78 the last year of the yellow cast jack and handle? Doesn't surprise me Toyota sells these as a replacement for the earlier style. Prime example is the amber bib lights that were used in 68/69 being the replacememt for the earlier bib lights used from 58-67 on cruisers imported to the US.

Is the crank handle you got solid or hollow? I collected a number of parts over the years. Think the one I got from a 94 80 series was hollow.

Did the 78 still have the engine starting crank handle? Thought it was interesting they dropped it in the FJ40 but had it in the FJ45LP-B. Makes it nice having a place for the handle when I replace the spare tire carrier for the modern version with a winch.

The crank handle is hollow. I do have the spare tire let down rod/engine crank handle. I’m not certain if 78’ was the last year for yellow paint.

I just looked at my 60 series jack handle, it's a stamped piece with a hollow tube for a handle. Painted yellow would look a lot more like the yellow cast ones used in the 40 series. My guess if you got one from a dealer would be just like the you just purchased. Used might be easier to find than the cast one.

Dug up a picture of my 89 FJ62 tool kit and it has the tube style handle. Not sure of the year of the one from the FJ60 or when the changed happened.
