View Full Version : WANTED: U-Bolts and plates for FJ40

03-21-2007, 10:37 AM
I have put an FJ40 front axle into my Patrol. The axle fits well, but I forgot the FJ axle is thicker than the Patrol so the u-bolts won't fit on. Anyone have some sitting around that aren't needed? I could sure use them to get my rig on the road. PM me with what you have or reply to this message. Thanks!

I'm sure I have some. Since you refabbing anyway why don't you make new plates and flip the u-bolts up and get them out of the way?

I started looking at the flip, but I am just not sure that it will be feasible with the Patrol parts. Actually, I guess anything is feasible. More appropriately would be to say that I don't know if it would be practical... I might consider it later down the road after I get this back on the road. Never seen a FJ front axle in a Patrol so I am sort of winging this...

Still looking if anyone has found anything they don't need. Thanks!
