    Some of you who want to do the FJ case swap into your Tacoma's, have the six speed transmission and as such you need the six speed input gear set to make this swap work.

    Some have tried to use the six speed t case from the FJ but have found that there are a couple of issues with this move. First off the six speed FJ case is a full time t case with a center differential. But the biggest problem is that it is longer than the standard FJ case and the tacoma case. You now get into drive shaft issues and such.

    Here is the six speed FJ case.

    And here is the standard FJ case. Notice how the standard FJ case is shorter than the six speed FJ case.

    The best way to make this swap if you have a six speed Tacoma, is to find the FJ case from an automatic FJ and swap out your input gear set from your Tacoma six speed case and put it in the FJ case. Then you have have to mess with the drive shafts or fumble around with having fulltime 4wd when you don't need it. Not to mention the fact that you couldn't use the twin stick option with this case either.
