Toy FJ60 and I think FJ80 too.

I didn't see anything in my scout box that was any beefier than my Toy IFS boxes though. The Toy box has a thicker sector shaft and is more compact. Also harder to find and get parts for too though.

Last rig had and IFS Toy box (rear swing), current rig has a Scout II box, which is how I did the comparison. I went with the Scout when I went to forward swing simply because it was easier to find and find parts for.

The 78/79 bronco f150 box it outside the frame foward facing box that is beefier that a scout box. I use one on my EB because I got tired of breaking the Saginaw box. Scout and Early bronco are same basic boxes just bronco is rear facing and scout is forward.

The 4 bolt one is, yes. I think the 4 bolt one was on the 250/250's The 3 bolt one is not quite as strong, but not a bad choice.
