Anyone need some fj40 OEM soft top bows? I may have a bead on some for a decent price, and would like to use them as a guide for while I build mine.

Anyone need some? Maybe we can work together on the deal.

I do! Totally interested depending on the details. What year are they from, and fit?

Early to Mid 70's and he is asking $500. I am going to go and look at them in about a week.

I'll post pics then and see if people need some or all parts!

Thanks!

BTW, Shouldn't most 70s oem bows be similar? If not what is the difference, say between a 1974 and a 1977. I have a 1977 FJ40. Thanks.

AFAIK, they are all the same... Is there a difference in pre 75 and post 75 doors as far as how they contact the door frame?

I'm pretty certain the front door frame parts are all the same. The later tops have an extra piece to attach the ambulance doors to in back, but they can be used on earlier rigs with barn doors as well.

Yup... I think I'm going to take a look this next week and will probably pick them up if they are in good shape...

Now to find some older doors to have some fun with.. Anyone have some beat to death doors they need to get out of the garage?
