They are not a bolt in as such.
You need custom engine mounts and transmission mount.
All of the kits I have seen, have an engine crossmember reshaped to allow the FJ20 sump bowl space.
This can be achieved by reversing the 510 crossmember and reversing the control arm pivots, or a custom replacement crossmember to suit.
Not being flushed with $$$ and being a 1/2 reasonable oxy welder, I had a lateral think and cut and shut the sump to move the bowl rearward to clear the standard 510 crossmember :idea:
The oil pump pickup tube was lengthened to place the pickup into the re-located bowl.
I added an new dipstck tube, gave it all a good clean, a coat of paint and VIOLA! job done 8)
Once I had the engine in the car and sitting on a 20mm block of wood on top of the crossmember, I proceeded to make the engine mounts.
Just plugged away cutting shapes and tacking them together until the engine sat where I wanted it.
I re-used the stock 510 rubber insulators.
For the trans. crossmember, I used the two ends of the 510 4 speed member and welded a custom centre section to it to mate up to the FJ20 5 speed rubber insulator.
The tail shaft needed to be shortened then it was all go :D
If you want to see some pics. have a look at my Sony Imagestation which is behind th WWW button at the end of this post.
You need to sign in to it but there is no cost or obligation on your part.

sorry to bite your head off as you are new and all that, but you should really try to use the search function. There are heaps of fj20 threads like this one where answers are already given and things already discussed. If you cant get the right answer from searching, then add a post at the bottom of THAT thread and reopen the discussion. Welcome to the site anyway - when i first started i found heaps of things through searching through older posts.
