    I have to admit something here - it weirds me out when someone calls a 60 a "pig" - and it really freaks me out to see "Iron Pig" slapped on the side of one. To me, the one and only Iron Pig is the FJ55.

    I've needed to get that off my chest for a while now - and yes, it's nice that only small things like that bug me. :D

    i have heard all round-light cruisers refered to as "pigs", but an IRON PIG is definitely a 55.

    Soa '60s always look good. ;)

    Not much else that you can tell from the picture though.

    And ONLY a '55 is an Iron Pig. Period. I should know after all. ;)

    Now maybe a '60 could be a Steel Sow, or ???

    :bounce2:

    Anycase theire say about locate the spring on the correct side.

    Question: in 60 series, OME send rear springs marks Right or Left. OK, I thought the left rear ( driver side ) are more soft than the right side, is correct . ?

    Iron Pig Offroad is the most capable FJ55 shop in the world. The owner Lance Williams has developed more FJ55 specific products than anyone else out there. Lance designed and built the way-cool SOA setup on my Pig and built the custom sliders and bumpers. The name of his shop is based on his FJ55 work. Since starting the business about a year ago he has branched out and makes a LOT of cool stuff for 40, 60, and 80 series Cruisers.

    Iron Pig Offroad is one of those small Cruiser specific shops that makes otherwise impossible to get products, gives excellent customer service, and deserves our business.

    I just bought a set of those seats and a custom built seat pedestal from Iron Pig Offroad for my FJ55. The seats will bolt right up to the pedestal and it will look like it came that way from the factory. Lance called me himself twice to arrange things and was able to save me a bunch of money on shipping by having the seats and Tuffy console drop shipped to me.

    yooper,

    do you like the seats, I would like to change mine out but have not wanted the hassle of fabing brackets are searching junk yards for decent seats. $265 each seems like a bargain.

    $265 is a very good price. They are ProCar Elite seats. I just ordered mine YESTERDAY so I don't have first hand experience to report yet. I've heard very good things, though. Here's another source with some good pics. Check out their customer's rides section to see some cool old muscle cars.

    i wont say there the EXACT same seats but you cant tell the difference. mine came out of an Acura Ledgend . So they are EXTREMELY comfy and have 8-way power movement. Can get them from a junkyard about a 100 a pop. My dad owned a Honda and Acura shop so he had them lying around then i had the back seat recoved in the same color leather like vinyl.
