The obvious answer is duct tape

The doors will come off but it requires a OEM pin cut and replacement with a hitch pin.
They make tube doors for them. Now top requires a lot more work.
I like it but I own a Jeep and an FJ because I have always loved both of these vehicles.

I've always thought FJs were pretty cool, it was on my short list when I bought my LJ (I liked the interior, but the lack of visibility and having to run it on premium gas were letdowns). Solid axle would make it much more compelling, of course you could say that about the Liberty too...

Eh, it's cool... I'd rather take a '96 crusher. I6 2JZ powerplant over a SA setup with a beast of a trans, supreme comfort, and originally equiped wih your choice of lockers. One of the best stock off road vehicles built by any maker in the 90s, probably on the short list of best ever. FJs just don't compare to where yota was 20 or 30 years ago, lmao.

But I have learned that if it goes over or through, I like it.

80 series Toyota land cruiser. They started standard locking axles in 4lo in 90. Became an option on 4hi in 94, I think. All are full time 4wd with viscous couplers (except some Japanese models). All have an I6, some are diesel and some turbo diesel (not in the US). It is the same base block as the coveted supra, which I have ridden in more than one 700hp+ supra.

In 96 it took 1st and 2nd in the Dakar race (unmodified class). Hell, from the beginning (1951) it was awesome - it was the first vehicle to make the 6th stage of mt Fuji. But the original BJ didn't have a 4lo.

They claim to have made it after the British land rover 'jeep', but us real jeepers know who they were really copying.
