    It's an 81-87, but you can tell the exact date from the data VIN tag on the driver's side door jamb and/or on the firewall on the driver's side.

    No headlight washer - '81 or '82, Chrome headlight surrounds - '83 or '84, non CV front driveshaft late '85 or newer. As for parts, most are the same for '81 thru '87.

    Couldn't it be a FJ62? I thought that the only way to tell between the two was the auto tranny and the square headlights.
