FJ40 Drive Line – Transmission

Parts are starting to roll in for the FJ40 project. For the transmission I have chosen to use the bomber New Venture 4500. The NV4500 is a 5 speed truck transmission that was used by Dodge and GM in their line of pickups. Purchased from Advance Adapters the transmission has been rebuilt with the output shaft cut and the Toyota transfer case adapter installed. I have installed a short shift adapter which will shorten the throw of the sift lever making shifts a little faster and easier.
