Last week there was a "FJ45 Flatbed" listed on Ebay....the "Tin Lizard".
My understanding was, it was a FJ40 tub mounted on a FJ55 frame.
Does anyone have any insight on this type of set up?
That truck looked like S**T, but the concept is pretty cool.

i think i read some where that the 55 frame is stronger than the 40 frame, so that would be a plus. but the 55 has a much longer wheel base, doesnt it? i dont think that would work out.

Its not a whole lot longer I think its like 10-12". Its a cool idea, I agree with poser you can make it work if you want to do it.

Its actually two 40 bodies put together though so they didn't have to adjust the frame. Just cut the second tub to the length they wanted.

Hi All:

Which rig is it? The custom 40/45 Series short pick-up?

My wife liked the pic of the pretty pup and lady at the end!

Looked like a good trail ride!
