So if someone had a '67 tub, could you put a '78+ floor in it for the fuel tank?

You mean a floor with the tank under the body?
Why would you want to do this? I take it you are looking for info for the 79 you just bought here. https://forum.ih8mud.com/40-55-series-tech/214041-glutton-punishment.html
Are you going to change the body mounts and all the other bits to put a 78 or earlier tub on your 79 frame? If you don't want to deal with the 79+ FJ40 differences sell what you bought and start with a 78 or earlier rig. You will probably be much happier in the end.
I think you see that the 79 and later cowl are different then the earlier style. The early ones have a tunnel cover and easy split right at the front of the doors. The 79 and later only have a inspection plate on the tranny tunnel and no easy split along the floor.Plus alot of little differences on the fire wall. A 67 didn't have the brake booster and steering is different.
