Rear Axle

5 of 8
The rear axle is also from an FJ60 Land Cruiser, with 4.88 gears and an Aussie Locker. These axles are 3 inches wider than the stock FJ40 axles for added stability. The rear suspension uses FJ62 leaf springs over the axle with the main leaf redrilled and center pin moved backward to extend the wheelbase. A custom traction bar and 10-inch-travel Pro Comp shocks complete the rear suspension.
