    ok....

    I have a 78 FJ40 which came with one small style Jump seat with leg supports....I have been looking for another one, but it seems some of the 78's had support legs and others didn't....any rhyme or reason for this?

    I would like to find a matching Jump Seat, with support, but it seems like I can't do this based on the year of the 40 the seat was pulled from....

    Any idea's.....

    Thanks guys....

    Don

    Ya know, I always though the ones with the supports were longer, but after seeing a few they don't look any different. ???

    Jonathan, If you are selling those seats let me know cause I need some for mine. I currently have the pre 73 style in mine that the previous owner installed and I want to get the right ones for mine. Also if would be intrested in the ones I have since they are for your year let me know.

    Pretty sure that the '79 year gave us rear jump seats that had the fold down support on the bottom...

    nah, don and jp, i'm not sellin. just sayin what i had. ha ha, sorry for the confusion.

    also, jp, since i have a rollcage, those long jumpseats are about the same use to me as they are to you.

    e-72ish, fj40s didn't have a stock rollcage. and they could seat 7! (3 up front, 2 on each jumpseat in the back)

    oh, btw, it's lookin like i'm not goin to be able to go this weekend. some friends are comin up and so is my dad, sooooo... you know the deal.

    thanks for offerin though. if you want to hit it up some later, or even later after finals, i'd be down, mos def.

    also, if you are still lookin at the turbo set-up, get those specs from mace for the adapter and we can get it done for ya (i think).


    have a good one,

    Jonathan, That is cool about this weekend I am sure there will be many more trips to Tellico. Also the adapter mace is using his setup with the factory exhaust manifold right? I don't have mine any more because I put on headers so I don't Think his will work for me. I am definetly going to trubo charge the cruiser this summer, cause inerstate driving in the ole cruiser sucks, but I have to get my tired old engine rebuilt first too. Don't think it could handle the turbo right now. If you end up doing the turbo too let me know for sure, so I can see how its done since I have no experiece with them.

    I know 75 and 76 had no support only the rubber bumpers. Somewhere around 77/78 and up they used the leg supports.

    doubt they would fit in between the posts of your roll cage, but it's worth a shot.

    they also have armrest capability.
