    Are these original seat frames in my '71? Where are these aftermarket seats from?

    I recently bought a '71 FJ40. Can anyone tell me where the seats came from? As I understand it, the original configuration was the split bucket setup (?). Also, are the seat frames original to the car? The fuel tank is aftermarket plastic. I'd also like a center console but I'm not sure what...

    Gauge cluster (Part # 83100-60180) compatibility w/ my '71 FJ40

    I just bought a new gauge cluster on eBay for my '71 FJ40. My original cluster is pretty worn out (lots of fading/scratching along with a non-working odometer) .

    '71 FJ40 with a '74 engine...

    I just bought this FJ40. The previous owner swapped out the original engine for one from a '74. It runs great (after I adjusted the crazy high idle) but there's a few things I'm curious about. I'm new to these engines so I'd appreciate your help. What the heck are those plugs on the block...

    Best Aftermarket Door Weatherstripping?

    Can anyone recommend a good aftermarket weather stripping option for the doors of my FJ40? I heard there were some self-adhering options as well but haven't been able to find them. I'd like them as thick as possible in an effort to eliminate as much rattle as possible. Thanks.
