I have restored a 74' FJ40 inside and out. I sold off the original interior and want to put a newer setup inside. I am running new Honda Civic buckets which are welded to the ten pt rollcage.

What kind of seatbelts can be bolted to a rollcage (above the shoulder and below the inside hip area) and will work in a FJ40? I am running 4 pt harnesses for offroad driving. Again the seats are welded to the cage. I need a seatbelt with a roller system above the shoulder that is sealed in a black plastic case. The kind I can't use is the seatbelt that is built into the door pillar area without a case to keep dirt and mud out.

Anyone know which trucks or vehicles had this kind of system that I can find in a junkyard? I walked five rows in the junkyard today with no luck.


thanks

Why not just run RCI/Corbeau aftermarket 2" belts? They use the same buckle as a normal car, are 4-point for greater offroad safety, and quite comfortable. No retractable junk to screw with. I've had my RCI's for 6-7 years with no complaints.

Also, I believe Corbeau has a 3-point retractable version...

For junkyard doners, see if there are any MG's out there....also check some of the 70's Toyota cars...IIRC, those have an "external" retract mechanism

If I knew what your name was I'd use it to address this!
I drive a '74-40 and didn't feel safe with the lap only set up, so I went yarding, and came across a nice set in a mid '80's Audi, bolted right in, and work great. Earl

Thanks Earl, Woody,and Todd for all the help.

I'll try a few more yards and then just buy new.
