07-11-2006, 03:36 PM
First of all, thanks to Chris, "Shark Bait", for bringing Rising Sun to my attention!!

Sold my '76 FJ40 :( but I still have a lot of parts that I acquired over the years that didn't go with the Cruiser...I'd like to sell them locally if I can and avoid the hassle of shipping and more importantly the pain of listing them on eBay!

I can ship any of these items but obviously if you are local and can pick up or I can meet you part way for gas $$ you can save yourself some dimes!! I'm in the Littleton/Highlands Ranch.

I don't have pictures for everything but I can get them if you want to see the particular item. I'll list more as time goes by but here are the first items that need to go:

***SOLD*** OEM Rear License Plate Holder w/ Lamps ***SOLD***

No tears, rips, etc that I am aware of
Although not shown in the pic I have all of the bows
Came with the '76 in 2002 when I bought it and has been stored inside ever since

I have more items that I have to go through and list later such as a complete air cleaner/filter assembly, OEM headrests, OEM bumperettes, heat riser kit, an old Kayline soft top with a slight tear, and a used Kayline bikini top, birfield, etc.

what's the measurement between the spreaders on the tow bar?

07-11-2006, 10:00 PM
How does the Kayline tire carrier mount to the truck?

07-11-2006, 11:05 PM
What do you want for the used bikini top? Do you have the windshield channel for it?

it mounts to the body

I measured the tow bar. Outside to outside is 33 3/4", Inside (the measurement you asked for) is 32 3/4", and the attachment points are 1/2" thick each.

Let me know if you need any other measurements.

How does the Kayline tire carrier mount to the truck?

Dug out the hardware and took a picture. I never had the carrier mounted in the 4+ years I owned the '76 FJ40 it came with. There are a couple bolts in the box but safe to say you'd need to buy some bolts etc. Looks like 8 mounting holes on one side and 4 (maybe six) on the other. It might be hard to tell from the picture but the brackets that mount to the Cruiser are curved to follow the contour of the rear quarters. Looks real stout. I don't have any instructions for installation of the carrier (I'll keep looking) but it looks pretty straight forward. I did find a picture of the carrier installed on a FJ40 in the old Kayline catalog. Bottom of page 19:


Let me know if you have any other questions!!

Edit: Removed pic - Carrier moved to its own thread

._.)']What do you want for the used bikini top? Do you have the windshield channel for it?

I'd have to dig it out and see what kind of shape it is in for you. I've got sooooo much stuff getting to things is sometimes a challenge :(

I do have a windshield channel (new) but I'll probably sell that and the new bikini top together as a set when I get around to digging them out. I really need to learn to not buy stuff until I need it! :eek: If some of the stuff was wine I have some great vintages.


07-12-2006, 03:30 AM
Had some interest expressed in the rear license plate holder deal so I dug it out and snapped some pictures of it. Plus, I have what I think is a front plate holder and maybe a battery tray bottom? Anyone know for sure? :confused:

Thanks for all the interest!! :)

Edit: Removed pics of license plate bracket - SOLD

07-12-2006, 09:30 AM
not a stock front plate holder. looks like some kind of store bought thing. and the other piece is a splash shield.

Thanks for the info!! Did you get those measurements for the tow bar I posted?

07-16-2006, 02:10 AM
Edited the main listing. I found the windshield channel for the Tigertop so that goes with it!! Brand new still in the box. http://forum.ih8mud.com/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif

I thought I bought one way back when but couldn't find it in all the stuff. Right now I have interested parties in the Supertop, tow bar, and PS bracket but nothing firm (i.e. no $$). I will give the interested parties first right of refusal should another party become interested.

07-17-2006, 03:12 AM
Tow bar is sold...Hopefully the other stuff sells soon too or they're off to eBay...:(

On a side note...I can only locate one used Bikini top and the new one. The used one is the older Kayline type that uses a different windshield channel than the typical Bestop type. So, I'll probably sell that with the Kayline soft top I have unless someone out there needs a Kayline bikini top and already has the correct channel.

07-17-2006, 12:17 PM
Did you say you have a bestop Bikini top as well? I would be interested (price?) and I already have the channel for it. How negotiable are you on the visors? Thanks.

I sent you a PM with the deal of a lifetime ;)

Thanks for your interest!!

07-19-2006, 04:32 PM
Visors and the bestop bikini top have been sold. THANKS!! :)

Also, discovered that the used bikini top I have is a Kayline (STC) so it will NOT work with a tiger channel. I will include it with the used Kayline (STC) top that I have if someone buys the tops or if you have a Kayline top and would like a bikini top that works with your windshield channel you can PM me with an offer. I believe STC still sells these for about $73 although I could only find reference to them on the pricing and instruction page.

07-20-2006, 01:05 PM
Supertop and 2-pc doors are sold...Thanks!! :)

07-24-2006, 01:01 AM
New give away prices on all items that have not yet sold!!

07-25-2006, 05:52 PM
For those interested, here are some pics of a Kayline tire carrier installed on a FJ40. The nice person that has a FJ40 up on eBay (check it out!! http://tinyurl.com/ebtvw (http://tinyurl.com/ebtvw)) allowed me to use them so folks could see what the tire carrier I have would look like installed. Check out the auction for bigger pics and possibly for a new Cruiser http://forum.ih8mud.com/images/smilies/smile.gif


Edit: Removed pics of installed carrier - moved carrier to its own thread

Updated the JTO PS bracket part #. Apparently they have changed the part # somewhere along the line so searching JTO's site on the old part # I supplied didn't provide any results.

07-27-2006, 03:59 PM
JTO PS Bracket is SOLD...Thanks all for helping me clear out my garage and basement! Making progress.

08-16-2006, 02:13 AM

Tigertop is SOLD!! Down to just one more top left, a used Kayline/STC top with 1/2 doors and bonus bikini top. I don't have any pics yet but if anyone is interested let me know and we can go from there.

I would REALLY prefer to sell this to someone local. All of the boxing and taping and boxing and taping is wearing me out!!!

08-16-2006, 09:18 AM
Bring it to the rally! :) Lots of potential buyers all in one place.

08-16-2006, 06:07 PM

I'm trying to work the rally into the schedule for sure and if I get a chance to bring some stuff with me all the better!! :)
