    Mine is a 75 and it looks just like the example shown. A 72? Not really sure. Can you take a digital pic of your dash and post it here?

    the dash changed in 1974 to the newer style dash. I know some say 72 or 73 but ive parted out both those years and they shared the older style dash. You should be able to use that pad no problem... the only difference I remember is the olde dash has the cruiser emblem inbeded in the center of the pad.

    actually all you have to do is trim the dash pad cover a little bit, aside from that it fits like a glove

    so will these dash caps fit a 1970 FJ55? does anyone have pics of one that was modified/trimmed and installed on an earlier style dash with the center section mentioned above?

    minimal procedure to trim any part of these caps, pretty easy:cheers: not sure of the exact differences to a 1970 dash....

    just pm'd ya, my stock dash has a center section that comes down, kinda near where your green light is. My concern is that the dash cap would look weird with that area cut out. Anyone else mod these to fit on an earlier style dash with the center section drop?
