    I'm thinking about replacing my old FJ45 PU seats - would like a later pickup bench seat with headrests. I know I'll need to fab brackets, but does anyone out there know of a model/year that is a good fit to the 45? Traipsing around the wrecking yard with a tape measure isn't so fun in the wintertime . . . (I know, what a weenie!)
    ;)

    So, was the fire extinguisher there because of the fear of your "original" seat catching on fire from that gas leak? :p

    the fire extinguisher is present in all my Cruisers, I've never had one flame up but I refuse to stand and watch one burn to the ground becuase I didn't put a $10.00 extinguisher in the cab.

    The tranny hump was modified by the previous owner, I assume the GM 1 ton tranny was taller than the factory 3 speed. Yes, the previous owner screwed a silly handle to the drivers door and as usual did some things to make me say W.T.F. ???

    Thread Hi-Jack complete :D

    Rusty, please let us know if you find something that works, I'de like a nice bench seat that would seat me and the wife and the boy.

    Hey, you've got to love the onslaught of questions/comments whenever you post a pic of YOUR Cruiser.

    You've successfully survived the Ih8mud.com picture gauntlet. OOOOOOhhhhh.....what fun... :rolleyes:

    I like that truck. :D

    Classy Huh!

    those are long gone, I took all my current pics before I did any work (for posterity) and I need to update my photos. Maybe I can drop the top this weekend and get some new photos since it's going to be 70 degrees and sunny :D
