    I found this on EBAY after I passed on two FJ45's due to them not being original enough. One of my biggest concerns with both FJ45 that I had found were the added buckets not being OEM like the seat I find here five hours from my house. I thought this would be impossible to find....Then I find this on EBAY

    so cal, going 45
    Driver's seat frame looks like a 40 series, not a 45. Passenger should have the cutaway at the back where it wraps AROUND the filler neck and goes closer to the passenger door than a 40 series does.

    No kidding. I'll be pulling out my stock seats when I have it built next winter, so they'll be available.

    I'm also pulling out pretty much everything else. Truck is 99% stock now, and after the build the only stock parts will be frame and body. :D

    So I take it the passenger side is accurate but what are the differences on the drivers seat from a 40 to 45?

    Fj45 Seats

    Hay guys someone told be there was talk about my seats here. Yes they are completely original except for the recover job at one time. They are out of a completely original rust free unmolested Oregon FJ45. They are different from FJ40 Seats. Seats do not have all the levers on them for the rear passengers to exit as if it were a FJ40. Mounting points may be different as well, can't exactly remember. The reserve has been lowered as well to $360.00. If they do not sell seats will be stored probably for the next ten years. Thank you everyone! GOOD LUCK on your projects.
