The latters are dime a dozen since they are the same as a mini truck, 60 etc.

All 40's had drive plates from the factory with dealer added locking hubs

All the 55's came stock with aisin hubs with disc brakes from the factory 75+. I'm not sure about pre 75 but I would assume they came with driveplates and then got either selectro or warns from the dealer.

Can you clarify on the difference in body length on the Aisin? I pulled mine off an FJ-60 to put on a 1976, but I am going Longfields (no c clip)
1976 FJ-40
2001 UZJ-100
