Maintenance records would be an obvious.

If wheeled, which it doesn't appear to have been outfitted for, inner fender bulges. CV boot leaks/tears, 4wd and rear locker (if equipped) engagement, and general mechanical.

General reported failures, if wheeled:

CVs
Rear diffs
Axle housing bends
Rear links bending, as well the frame mounts
Slip yokes ( were never slated for dealer lubrication)

May have better luck researching on FJCruiserForums.com, in all honesty.
It's the land of sunshine and unicorns, but a good resource overall, especially considering the inactivity here.

^^^ what he said. Mine is for sale on there also. It's got some serious beef under it already.

If you're going to wheel it, replace the rear lower links with something stronger and get some armor on the front frame mounts for those.
