    Did a search, found nothing for this year 40...

    Just completed a SOA on a 1979 FJ40 and the typical anti-wrap bars don't work due to the new fuel tank location. Anyone have a suggestion on a bar from a Mud vendor, etc, besides fabbing one, which I'm happy to do.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Dave-
    Get a hold of Paul Decker
    Here is his web site- www.deckersonline.com

    Call him ro go over your set up requirements.
    I do not have his on my rig but no others that do and they are happy with it.

    Keep up the good work on the magazine.

    I have a 79 tub and used one similar to Paul Decker's design and its offset. Its working fine this way.

    It would require you fabing, but ruff stuff specialties has some nice stuff. I will be installing mine soon and will post up some pics then. GL

    Thanks everyone! The other thread was great, too. I called Paul Decker, he said his won't work with a 79 and up. But I'll give a shout over to JK and Solid Rock too.
