    Will a gas tank cover from a later model FJ40 fit over my '72 gas tank??

    Just curious, thought I'd dress up Buddy's interior just a bit.

    No.

    At least not without modifying it....the older tanks were 18 gallons/larger than the 16 gallon tanks found in the later 1973 to 1979 40 series...


    Good luck!

    Roger that Poser... I forgot the tanks were smaller in the later models.

    Oh well, I'll just purty-up my '72 tank. Thanks!!
