    what is involved in switching the auto hubs on a 1991 fj80 front axle to manual hubs... can i use the asin manual hubs from a mini truck axle? if so what would be involved

    If you're trying for 2wd, you will have 2wd, but still be using all the power required for 4wd unless you lock the center diff and pull the drive shaft or get the 2wd conversion kit from marks4wd.com. Yes, the Asin hubs work, and there isn't much involved, but unless you take the extra steps, you're just wasting your time IMHO.

    Just buy a set of Aisian hubs and go on your merry way! I believe somone here has posted the part no. if you do a search ... or you can find it on Sleeoffroad.com as well.

    You need the hubs found on FJ60s/62s or early mini trucks/4Runners. The IFS hubs are a different spline count. Nothing else for a 91/92 axle.

    Jeff, I may have another front axle for you...(4wheel steer maybe?) I looked at a Green '95 FJ80 today that isn't locked so it's a great canidate for another portal conversion.
