I searched for wheelbase stretch and found posts detailing moving axles outwards ... but what I'm trying to get is an idea of is what a FJ40 looks like with a 10 to 15 "body " stretch ... with the increase betweeen the door and rear wheel well. Appreciate links to all pic's that might be out there. Thanks.

I believe it is stretched 10", aluminium body by aqualu, IIRC. This is the guy/rig that took the real hard roll near buck island if you remember the article from the trails.
There are more pics of it in this albumn.

pygpin ... many thanks. Does not really change the "looks" much ... an issue with my wife. I'm trying to talk her into a stretched Aqualu rig. ;) Thanks again.

Is the red one a factory FJ44? Anyone know the wheel base and the increased length behind the rear wheels?

Just guessing ... but it looks like the wb is +/- 10 inches longer with +/- 6 inches behind rear wheel?? Thanks for all the info.

I really like the red one. That would allow my dogs a bit more room with the camping gear. Were there any 42s available in the US?

Interesting that the Bandiertee's are BJ55's...

FJ55's are completly different.
