    Interested in a set of 4 SP Road Grippers. I'm assuming I can buy just the tires (no rims)?

    Yes, you can purchase 4 w/o. We'll start taking orders as things are sorted.

    @beno no tool kits in the cabs, just the big rubber band that holds it. I have one more to call to make concerning them.

    Also on the list

    Factory "Land Cruiser" snorkels
    Center consoles. gray, Rhd
    Vinyl floor mat (not carpet), gray
    Rear bottle holder (mounts on rear cab wall)
    Front fender flares

    Put me in line for a snorkel, depending on price and my funds availability. Also, some better photos of how it fits up to your BJ73, I have an 89 BJ75 Troopy, so the fender and windshield angles should be close to yours. Do you drill into the A-piller to attach the upper bracket?

    Interested in the console - what is a 79 series console like, and will it drop into a 73? My truck is RHD.

    For the 79 series with a 1HZ (so a bare bones setup) there are two different center consoles: a large and a small.

    The console would have to be a RHD and be a small console for it to fit (theoretically). The console has to have a cut out for the brake handle. Of course, you can modify the console to accommodate the ebrake handle if it doesn't fit.

    I'll get pics of the snorkel fit up later today.

    These consoles are RHD. The cutout section for the E-brake handle can be swapped for a LHD piece, I'll grab the part number for it. This console looks exactly like the unit in my 1988 BJ73. If mounting tabs are required, I can remove them from the cabs.

    Thanks very much - looks identical to what is already in the 73. Also, I'm interested in those 225/90's. Any ideas on cost? PM if you would like. Zip code 37363. Tires only, no wheels.

    Interested in center console and vinyl floor mats. I have to check the heater controls back there.

    The console has a panel that can be swapped for the rear heat.

    The doors fit great. The upper corner of the frame at the top of the A-pillar is rounded, so sharp cornered fold down windshield models will need a small piece of gasket orwe can easily come up with something.

    $990/ pair + shipping for complete doors... all new take offs, shell, glass, roll up mechanism, lock, handle, latch, gaskets, weather stripping, 1/4 flip out windows.
