never mind i found some on other web site .. too much work    to convert using mini truck parts and  too much $$  using MAF kits

Its one of the easiest upgrades using mini truck knuckles.  Takes about a hour a side at the most.

Correct, '69 FJ is coarse spline junk.  Best use a truck axle '79 -'85
