How strong? Land Cruser?

I can get the complete running gear from a Land Cruiser for free! What kind of tranny/transfer case could it have? Axles? it has a I6 with the numbers 150 on the side of it I think?

Those are the axles sought after in a Zuk.

Re: How strong? Land Cruser?

I assume you are talking about the older FJ-40/60 type Land Anchor not the Luxo Cruiser. The Land Anchor axles are fine if you don't mind real small pinion stem diameters and changing birfields in the front every 6-8 ft.

Re: How strong? Land Cruser?

No thanks. I'm going to run Dana axles (30/44), something without a stupid Birfield joint in it.

Re: How strong? Land Cruser?

It looks like a closed knuckle axle design, has bearings and inner and outer races where a ujoint would be in a good axle. hehe

Re: How strong? Land Cruser?

A Birfield is a weak front axle joint, they hate big tires and lockers. I've owned two "Cruisers" in my time, one I should have kept, it was a 1961-62 FJ-45 Pick up with removable hardtop, the second was a 1977 FJ-40. I'm guessing the drive train your looking at is out of a mid/late 70's FJ-40 because they are the most popular. The front and rear axles look like a ford 9", both front and rear axles are offset to the right. Anything pre 1979 will most likely have a 4.10 ratio, it was either 1979 or 1980 the standard ratio became 3.50-3.55. The inline 6 is called a 2F, it is based on, but not interchangable with the GM based 225 I-6... (rumour has it the lower end is.. but I don't know of anyone that has tried) If your going to use this for a Jeep, it would be a challenge, both axle being offset, the drivetrain, even though it's an inline six, it's not the same, no adapters, etc. Hopefully this has been a little help to you.

Re: How strong? Land Cruser?

What in the hell is that contraption?!? My mother's Saturn wagon would probably destroy one of those coasting down a frigin hill!!

So let me get this straight. Instead of a u-joint, it's basically a swivel ball-bearing type joint? Is that at all close to what it is? That's what it looks like.

Seems to me whoever came up with it should be shot.
