HI James,

I strongly recommend against anything that decreases the rear driveline length for an FJ40, which includes Toyboxes, NV 4500s and H55Fs. Autos generally also increase that length, no matter which adapter unless done with a V8 swap at the same time.

When talking about going (fill in the blank) link IRS, all bets are off and now you are talking about a much huger scope of modification, and mating a 4 speed t-case to an A440F while retaining your PTO is a much smaller part of a huge project.

Best of luck and happy cruisin'!
