Since I daily drive my 40 and also cart my kids around regularly I focus on repairs which make the truck as kid friendly as possible. For my 3/79 this meant new seat belts to replace the forty year old worn out Takata belts. Lots of choices on the internet but I decided to go with Cruiser Corps. I like to support Land Cruiser vendors and their belts looked as good as any others out there in the pictures. US made was a huge factor as well. Installation was very easy, however I had the advantage of all my original mounting bolts still present on the vehicle. If you are missing your mounting bolts it would be more challenging as the hardware provided is not enough to compensate for this. Especially for the shoulder mounting point on the roll bar junction, the original bolts were necessary. These belts look really close to OEM and function very smoothly as well. A bonus with the rears is they can hold up the jump seats when folded up. For function and aesthetics I would rate these belts as top notch.

The buzzer stopped working with the electrical connector no longer connected but the seatbelt warning light still lights up for a few seconds on startup. I like the wonky old buzzer and I will try to extract the wiring and contacts out of the OEM drivers belt latch and see if I can revive it.
