I had read about Neon seats working well in the FJ40 and decided to pickup a pair. I start to look at installing them tonight and it seems they are too high. This is a 1970 FJ40 and I had a set of brackets from a 76. I am capable of fabricating /welding but the main problem seems to be the height of the gas tank that will set the height of the seats. Does anyone have any experience with this or a suggestion on a lower profile seat from another vehicle? These were 97 Neon seats and they are suppose to be the same 95-99. Any suggestions or help appreciated.
The Neon seat is a bolt in for the 79 and later 40 series, after you bend one part of the seat mount area flat.....

Have not ever seen them in anything other than a 79 and later truck....

I installed these...and they were significantly lower than the molded baja seats that I had in there before....


Good luck!

Hi All:

I've heard that some models of the Toyota Celica have bucket seats that are straight bolt-ins for FJ40s.

One can also fab-up "custom" (maybe jury-rigged is a better term!) seat brackets for pretty much any seat.

Good luck!

they sat higher but it was kinda nice with the added leg room


I used Saab 93 seats... mmmm leather!

They sit high, but the school bus steering wheel doesnt help either... got to love the leg room if your tall.

POSER, got any pics of your seats installed into your LC? I have very similar APC Bucket Seats and just wanted to see how they looked installed before I actually install them myself. (Just purchesed from Summit on the sale rack! Great condition!)
Try some PT cruiser seats- cheap on ebay
