IIRC, I've got a page on ih8mud.com that covers axle widths for a variety of vehicles, including FJ40's. In case you need another reference...

So were/are the majority of CJ's upto 1973.
The FJ40 rear is a nice upgrade, they use the Model 18 transfer which is offset too.

So the rear of a FJ40 is 55" WMS to WMS. I just measured the front on mine and it is around 57". Is it common for the front and rear axles on vehicles to be different like this? Just curious. <IMG SRC="smilies/massey.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/trooper.gif" border="0">

Yep, the front is 57", and the rear I thought was more like 56", but I dont have a complete axle to measure, so I'll accept 55" for now! Most 4wds have wider front axles. If you drive behind one, you'll notice it.
