I Like Tg But For $80 More I Would Get A Full Longfield Set

Fully Loaded Six Shooter Knuckle Kit 299.00
I Have These On My 40, If You Want To Use Ige's Large Pattern Knuckles And Add The 5th Bolt That Works Good Too

Rock Assault Trunnion Bearing Eliminator Kit 199.00
I Have No Experience With These But It Looks Strong, Basically Gives You A King Pin Setup, Or You Can Do The Marlin Crawler 25mm Trunnion Bearing Kit, Also Very Strong


Jt Outfitters
Booster Adaptor Plate 60.00
http://www.jtoutfitters.com/toyota-e...anjfn6do9sl3q7

Total $1923.00 So Far W/o Shipping

Still Need:
Late Model 40 Series Or 60 Series, Spindle (30 Spline) And Hubs, Calipers,you Should Be Able To Get All Of This And The Power Brake Booster From Yoda Jim's, I Would Also Check To See If He Has A Complete Late Model Disc Brake Front End. You Can Usually Get Those For $350-$400
My Comments Above In Caps

I would suggest getting the 80 master and trim the plunger unless you need a new booster. I picked up a used 80 master and reservoir from yoda yard for $25.00. The bolt pattern is the same on 40's-80's. If money is not an issue go wild, but I remember when I was married I was on a budget . That little thing that looks like a measuring cup from JTO I don't have.

Thanks Keven! Yes I will need a booster as my 40 is early 1970 with no booster on it at all. The thing from JTO is what will set the booster off the firewall so it will fit otherwise, I would have to mod the firewall...

Thanks again for the input!

Same thing except Longfields are made by Bobby Long, if you get his 30 spline superset (inner axle, birfield) and his chromoly hub gears everything is guaranteed for life against breakage.

The TG stuff may be pretty good but for $80 this is one time where I say spring for the name brand stuff.

FYI...You'll need to trim the upright reinforcement bar on the firewall to make the booster fit with proper clearance and a reinforcement plate for the booster to the firewall (available from JTO or just make your own from 3/16" plate). I converted this past winter and it's been the best upgrade I've done to my '69-40!

BTW, I have a complete stock front axle from a '76 with factory discs and 4 bolt knuckle arms if you want to go that way. You don't have to take the 3rd members if you want to use yours. LMK if you're interested and I'll shoot you a price.

Randy, Thanks I checked them out and they do look great!! The MAF's also have a lifetime warranty but I like the fact that the Longfield's are made here and they have a GREAT rep...
