    Hey, I got another question. Have a FJ40 with '72 frame and a '74 body. The engine is an F. The mini-truck PS conversion is something that looks interesting but I've seen them only used with the 2F engine. Should it work, that is, install o.k., for what I've got?

    What tires you running? I think the minitruck PS works well with tires like 32/33 or under. If you are going to go with 35's or larger and plan on doing slow rock crawling then you may want to look at other PS options...

    P/S Brackets

    I have both brackets to do the Mini truck gearbox and
    the Saginaw P/S pump.That includes all the mounting
    hardware,spacers and adjusting arm.
    They are $95.00 each plus shipping. If you buy both
    they are $180.00 plus shipping.
    Send me your address and what you want and I will
    email you a total.
    You can see pictures at the below web site and a good
    post on ih8mud. Thanks

    You'll be fine, I am running 35's and have no issues. I would install a cooler either way, makes everything last longer.

    Bill is your man for the brackets!
