lockers in a FJ60

I have a 1984 FJ60 that I would like to add front and rear lockers to. I am considering ARB but is it possible to transplant the e lockers from an 80 series? Does anyone know of a good place to purchase a rebuilt 3rd with lockers allready installed?

Thanks. Scott

For the front, yes. It is possible to install the REAR 80 series elect locker. Two longer studs and maybe some grinding on the housing and then a long spline shaft for one side. I forget who sells them.

For the rear of your FJ60, no idea. I don't recall if 60 series had C clips or not. If it does have C clips, no

The rear fj60 is semi-float and has c-clips.

Its been awhile.. guess its time for this thread again

As pointed out above, the 80 Series Rear E-Locker WILL fit in the FRONT of the 60, with slight mods, longer studs and a long-spline inner axle shaft (Longfield or OEM).

The rear, no, unless you have our install a full-float axle.

ARB's start looking cheap when you add up the cost of the FF swap and custom shafts

Not really sure what a fellow cruiser head meant when he claimed the toyota elocker to be weaker in a certain area than the ARB?

Actually, he said cheaper. Although I do hear people grumbling about the 80s e-locker and have heard of a few failing and apparently a "design flaw".

Long live the Aussie Locker!

I will tell you this from experience. ARB's are about the easiest way to have a reliable, selectable locker. I have had them is many different axles and have never once been let down or dissatisfied. From stocker DD Cruisers to Dana 60ed, getting it trail rigs ARB is my tried and true choice.
