is fj80 engine, drivetrain and suspension easily installed on fj60/62?
Wow at that guys garage and collection. I would never dare do a body and frame switch. Just wondering if parts are bolt-on, which they are not.
One interesting thing I got from his thread is that his over-built fj62 got its a$$ handed to by stock fj80. I was under the impression of the complete opposite, thinking the older slimmer fj will do better on the trails. Any more info on this?
What that guy is doing is what I have been thinking about doing, except not with a 100 series drivetrain. Ive been bouncing back and forth between a Scrambler of a 43(decided its too small), another 60 and an 80. I just plain do not like 80 series Cruisers at all but man would I love to have coil suspension under a 60. I had the 4" MAF shackle reversal kit on the 60 and it rode pretty well for leaf springs but a stock 80 was much better on the trail with much more flex. A linked 60 series would be fantastic. There are a couple out there but they have been seriously cut up which is not what I would want to do. I used to think that the 60 series was big but dimensionally, its slightly smaller than a 4th gen 4Runner.
