i wanted to just go with 4.11s 'cause i figured i could find those for free from someone upgrading to 4.56s or 4.88s, and then the 55% reduction of the new t-case gears, and see i still do want to keep some semblence of good fuel economy, and once i have the money for the turbo i should be sitting nice for highway driving again...gotta remember this is a daily driver and trail rig combined...
any fine spline, so, does that mean i am limited to fj62 and 1978 fj40?
can also use the 4.11's out of the rear of any 80 series, these are prolly as(or more) plentifull then fj62, lots of guys swap to 4.56 or 4.88. this is what I used in my 86 fj60, I had one rear set from my 80, got another set for free.
fwiw I think the 80's are 4.11 and the 62 is 4.10 or it's the other way around, but they are different...not alot but just a bit.
alex.. you could almost use any 4.11 out of a cruiser. The easiest route have been posted above. older 40 4.11's are more plentiful... if you can't swap the flange bc of fine vs. coarse you can mate the drive shafts, you could run an adapter, you could redrill your flange.. etc. I have a set I'm putting in the 70 too I just need to get around to it.
I was going to do the 411 swap yesterday but the wind chill wasn't cooperating and It isn't a huge priority. Most likely next weekend. I'll let you know how it goes.
I ripped out the radio and cb to put in a cd and orig box so it's cleaner and closer to stock. Other wise things are the same beside some new fluids and a primer pump, and a few small things. Trying to save up for OME. I truely enjoy driving a 3B.
