WTF? Is there such thing of Landcruiser J7? Actually I’m interesting to purchase and replace the factory seats with Recaro seats. Now if you want the Recaro seats you need to have Recaro seat bracket, so I check their webs and so on. They do have bracket available for Toyota Landcruiser J7 no year, no nothing and WTF is J7? I called them and asked what Landcruiser J7 is and they got no Fawkin clue... Told me to call back within 4 hrs...Can somebody help me here?

Here is the link:
http://www.recaro-nao.com/INDEX_FRAMES.HTML click on the PRODUCT, -> CAR SEATS -> AFTERMARKET -> BRACKET then ->
ACCESSORY look up in the Toyota section what is Landcruiser J7?

Thanks all and here what the damn bracket looks like :

a 70 series Land Cruiser is what a j7 is, its writen J7 because it might be a BJ7X or a FJ7X or it may be a B(orF)J74, 71, 70, 73, 75, 78,79.

OK I'm typing slow today :D

If you can find s set of whatever slides and do a little fabbing you could save some money ;) BTDT.

BTW the "ergomed" is not for the fat asses like mine, otherwise it's pretty cool. make sure you can try one out for real before you buy, they are definately on the stiff side. good luck.

the ones with suspension seats are different from the fixed seat floor

I'm not sure the floors are that much different, I took a quick look since I want to add suspension seats on my LJ and it looks like the prisoner nuts and holes on the floor might be there under the carpet. I forgot to compare with my buddys donor truck last tuesday though :doh:

the seat are specific to a suspension or a non-suspension mount, the floor is specific as well. a suspension will work if I modify the rear inner brackets, as well as modify the fronts. then adapt a new set of seats. definately not a one-hour job :eek:
