Swhat is the strength difference between an fj60 and 80 rear axle? And with yours being built what's the biggest tire size you can run?

80 series has bigger brakes, a higher load rating (4000 vs 3000 if I remember right) and a stronger axle housing.

Since mine is a custom housing (even stronger) and has 4340 alloy axle shafts, I would feel comfortable running up to 40" tires on it.

But of course I instead run 35" all terrains as I don't want to push my equipment to the limit.
