    not without some modifications for sure.. FJC's are a 4 link coil sprung suspension, your tacoma is a leaf sprung suspension so all that would have to be changed.. plus the FJC rear is probably a little wider than your 1st gen rear.

    Is it the 3rd member, or the whole axle?

    Whole axle... I didn't know how the FJ's were set up in the rear, just curious.

    Yeah like Kevin said, they're a link rear end so you'd need to cut off those brackets, and weld on spring perches for the leaf suspension as well as shock mounts. Also, there are some differences in the brakes between the years IIRC too.
