Toy axles in Jeep?

Anybody put thought into this? Toy axles are pretty strong and good gearing from the factory....

I was thinking Land Cruiser FJ-80 axles, full floaters, disc brakes, factory locker, 4.10....

Front reverse rotation high pinion.....

Just thinkin' when I did the brakes on our Cruiser I was looking at the hub and holy cow!!! they're big, just about the same size as the rear hubs on my friends PowerSmoke!

I'll probably catch hell for this!!!

Re: Toy axles in Jeep?

I've seen a few with toy rear axles. But would you do front? Wouldn't they have the crappy birfields(sp?) in them?

yeah but the FJ-80 axles are WAAAY beefy, I think someone was telling me like D-60 beefy, they are very large 32 or 35 spline

Re: Toy axles in Jeep?

You probably will catch hell for this, but just from people that haven't tried it. I've got early 80's Toy axles SOA under my CJ-5 locked up running 36's. I wheel the wee out of it. I have tried to break them just to see how strong they are and I haven't broke anything yet. True, I am paranoid about the front birfields...any time I hear the slightest pop I think it is a birfield...but it hasn't been one yet. But you can get the Longfields or Super birfields (same thing different name). I haven't heard of anyone breaking these yet. I also lucked up and got 4.37 gears in both my axles that came out of different trucks. Also, it is fairly easy to do a crossover steering set-up. Which you have to do because of the gay Toy J-arm. I also have Toy driveshafts, which are WAY beefier than stock Jeep shafts. I had them cut down and got the correct size yoke for the t-case end, had them made at my local powertrain shop. I am digging this set-up for now, but I will still end up going dual 60's one day. Just my 2 cents. Late, Casey

when I was 18 or so I had an 83 toy regular 22r blew it and pulled motor trannie and transfer case out of a suburban and shoved in it, the gears never gave one min. of trouble and I was running 35's and smoking them ?

They work well, though. And that's what it's all about....whatever works. If Satan can follow me down the trail...he can have me!

Do a search.

A friend was running the Toy axles in his Scrambler behind a build 289, and they held fine, no problems.
