So I looking to buy a FJ and I have read the the 07 some of them have a weak diff, just wonder how do I tell if it has the updated rear differential?

Welcome! How many miles on it? Generally speaking, if it hasn’t blown up by now it’s probably fine. I bought my 07 (build date 7/06) with about 77k mi and had no issues. But swapped axles and regeared about 30k mi later....however there are MANY high mileage 07s still doing fine on original equipment. Hint: Keep up with regular differential oil changes!

Mine is an early one. Purchased 04/06. I tend to think that it has the weak gear in it. But I'm not very hard on it, Imogene and Engineer and Poison Spider is the toughest trails that it's been on. 124k miles on it now.
