My local dealer can get 77100-60042 which appears to fit FJ40 1/75-1/79. Has anyone purchased one? Here is link on TPD.

Thanks @OGBeno appreciate the verification and images of the tank. I do not trust TPD.

Yeah, it's in my build thread as well - fairly reasonable if you shop around, different dealers had different shipping rates. Nice tank, but expected as it's OEM. I didn't expect a hand-lettered part number, but neat in an old-school sort of way.

Came *surprisingly* fast - I figured it would come by boat as an uncommon item, but I had it in a few days.

Yes. it's $390 via Toyota Parts Deal. Your local dealer will sell it for about $450 includes shipping if you ask for their best pricing.

Just received my factory Toyota fuel tank 77100-60042 yesterday. Noticed the paint is matte finish…it may even just be primer. Did you (or anyone) top coat your tank prior to install?

I didn't but think I probably should have. I was in a rush to get it installed so we could fire her up for the first time. I rinsed it out really good with water and let it dry in the warm garage. Granted my rig is only driven when the weather is nice and doesn't see the elements.

I didn't bother, but as long as it's coated it's ok to me. Topcoats are more for being able to clean easily, sunlight/UV protection, and impact/scratch resistance...none of which matter too much for the tank.

Definitely doesn't hurt, though, and OEM was definitely shiny. I'd wager it was more about plant economies at the time...probably the same paint they used on the rollbars. :p
