    The only "real" ones I've seen pics of have been the Australian ones. I can post pics later, but they have flatbeds.

    the Aussie 25s were all either a 25 with the bed hacked off or just the cab chasis(with a local bed or tray)

    Yep, I think we determined all the Aussie 25's were shipped as cowl and chassis and the tubs were made there. I think the pickups did have some extra wheelbase....as in FJ28....have to look it up though. ;)

    Well - now I'm confused ... I've got the one I posted saved as a FJ25LP and I've got this picture saying it's an FJ28. Anyone?

    Don't be confused....I'm convinced that the artists and illustrators made up half this stuff. I don't trust anything unless it's an actual photograph. ;) If you look at the next page of the brochure it says the FJ28 is a 96" w.b. which I think is true. That illustration is definately a 90" w.b. and labeled FJ28, but then a few pages before this 96" (or longer) w.b. truck with no model number is pictured. :confused: Of course then there's the FJ21, 24, 27.............

    If Land Cruiser Junky's counts as a 25..... ;)
    I'll do that someday with one of my spare bibs. Actually what I would like to see is a soft top SWB....done with the soft top tub...... :idea:

    Who? Me? Only if the '66 FJ45 LWB in the drive next to the '60 FJ25 soft top tub counts. Picking up an EFI/HEI'd F motor in NJ after CMCC for the project. Got 34x9.5 Swampers on the 45 already. Just picked up a new pack of saw blades at Lowes and refilled the bottle for the MIG. Parted a '77 FJ40 for some disk brakes, 4-sp and a chunk of firewall for the brake booster. Got the 25 bib and aprons in the garage. A couple 40 frames out back for the stretch. Yep, just about got all the parts together to build a phantom extended cab 25 soft top, long box pickup with an OEM PTO winch. :)

    Did I take good notes Cruiser_Nerd? Got any suggestions for tail lights?
