View Full Version : Axles and stuff

11-18-2009, 04:15 PM
I have a few items that I'm not gonna use after changing the direction of my 40 build a couple of times.

first up is a set of freshly built fj60 axles
They both have ARB's with 5.29's. All of the bearings and gears have been cryogenically treated. The long side has been trussed on both axles also.
The front has been cut and turned for spring over by Proffitts using stock front springs. It has the knuckle ball gussets. It has Longfield's 30 spline superset and the 4340 hub gears. 4x4 Labs High Steer arms with drag link and tierod with Chevy 1 ton tre.
The rear has Poly Perfomance 4340 alloy axles shaft and the disc brake conversion. The rear has no perches on it but I have a pair that go with it so you can set your own pinion angle.
ASking $2800 obo for the pair. If this is unreasonable I'm sure y'all will let me know.:D Sold
I have the stock 40 axles from my 76. $350 obo for the pair Sale pending
The stock axles from my 70. $250 obo for the pair. The rear is missing some brake parts.
I have a Advance Adapter 350 bell housing with tranny and split transfer out of an 82 FJ60. It is the smaller idler shaft not the big one. It comes with the crossmember that has been modified to fit between the frame rails on a 40. It tucked up really nice. $500 obo
I also have 2 sets of barn doors. One is pretty nice the other ones are rough.
The nice set has a couple of rust through spots.
The other set has no hardware either.
You get the idea. $125 for the nicer set. $75 for the other
I have a set of 5 new steel black D window wheels 15x8 with 3.5BS
I had tires mounted then dismounted so these never saw the road.
$125 for the set of 5. Sale pending
I also have 5 new Stauns for these rims. $550 I bet you can't beat that price anywhere. :D

Thanks for looking. If you have any question feel free to call Shaun 719-339-1005. All items are located in Manitou Spring CO

ooooo tempting........

5.29's seems high for a daily driver though... man o man

For around town I bet they would be nice. and probably be able to keep pretty decent mileage with 37"+ tires.

I have 35's..

3250RPM at 75mph...

I drive long distances in the truck regularly. I wonder if the v8 would be happy at those r's for 12hrs straight.

I think that is a very reasonable price on those 60 axles. I paid $2200 and had to drive to Wichita for an almost exact set-up. Powertrax in rear, 4.11 gears, and they had been wheeled for a while. You easily have upwards of $4000 into those puppies. Good luck with the sale:beer:

I figured it up the other day and I have close to $4500 into the axles with all new bearing, seals and the cryo treatments. They also have Marlins heavy duty inner axles seals also.

Marco, you know you want 37s. You know you do... and these could handle it.

Heck, go all in and get 40s.

I have come to dislike 5.29 (I'm on 33" tires tho). Loved them for the first year or two when it was trips up into the mountains or Utah. Well within toleration for driving to work and back.

But the past two years I've had to do quite a few Denver<->St. Louis loops and I am sooooo ready to punt them.

5.29s were really needed for Red Chili 1 with a 3.slo and 33/12.50x15 MTs.

5.29s were ideal for the Chili 2 with 35s and a four popper. About 4-5% lower than stock I would guess.

4.88s are ideal for the Chili 2 with 35s and a 3.4 sixpack. 5.29s worked but I kept reaching for 6th. 4.88s are about equal to stock for an '87, but lower than 4.10s and 265s in the donor 96 4Runner.

All depends on the powerplant and the tire size.

I found with my 40 that my speedo is accurate like when it had stock size tires if I used the following gear/tire combos:

4.10=stock tires
4.56=33's to 35's
4.88=37's to 38's
5.29=39's to 40's

True, so true. I'm collecting things (just need that illusive free 4.10/8" diff) to go back to 4.10 on my truck, but been running up against a serious budgetary wall this year. Eventually I will be back to a 22R-E/4.10/30" setup, which was the last combo that really worked.

True dat, but though the speedo is correct at those ratios, the amount of power consumed just to push those big meats around is also greater. Hence the need for 5.29s with a 33" shod 3.slo 4Runner, definitely down on power. The 4Runner came with 4.56s and 31s though, so not the same starting point.

It is still a curiosity why, then, 5.29s worked great with a 22RE and 35s, except that combo was lower than stock, not equal to it. Made up for rolling losses.

So my guess would be, based on your list but correcting for rolling resistance as well as speedo error, dropping one slot, 5.29s on a 40 pushing 37s-38s would be about right.

Words of a friend:
In theory, theory and reality are the same.
But in reality, they are not.

True, but currently my 40 (which I had weighed at 5,000 lbs) and a very worn out F.5 motor has 4.88's and 39's yet manages to run 65 mph on flat ground. It does require gringing along in 3rd if you have much of an incline.

This was the original plan for these til my rig building ADD kicked in again. :D
