Matt I have not really thought about the rest of the steering assembly. Here is a little more information.
9/72 FJ-40 Needs a Rag Joint -which I have a line on.
I plan on running 35's with a 4" OME system - I personally don't like the SOA conversation - It always seemed too involved and I have seen some done very poorly/unsafe.
I want to remove as many tie rods as I can from the 40. Way too many links and parts to fail.
I will use a Toyota PS Pump, as it will bolt straight to the engine block.
I think the hardest part would be piecing it together from the firewall to the Gearbox. Most likely will need to find a specialty shop to help fab up some linkage. 55's are too rare and I'm sure someone with a 55 is looking for the part.
Might end up replacing the knuckle housing to a 60 or a 6 shooter.
