I have a 72 fj40 that needs a roof badly so I can wheel it this winter. I think the 75 roof will fit. Hopefully somebody will correct me if I'm wrong. But you can have the tub and roof for a complete roof or soft top I will even deliver with in reason.

What kind of shape are the floors in on that tub?

They look pretty solid the guy says it has been sitting on 2x4's for 25 yrs

Between my recent axle and suspension acquiring and this tub I'm wondering if a RS raffle truck might be in the works! :thumb:

just the tub no fenders, hood, doors, front clip, grill, but the split seats look in pretty good shape. somebody please trade me for a complete soft top or top I need to wheel this winter.

I guess what I should just do is get a clean tub and clean out my pile of un needed goodies and turn around and sell the wicked low geared beast! :rolleyes:

I believe the '75 and up tops will fit but you will have issues with:

the windshield channel - it won't be "notched" for your wiper arms (assuming you have a '72 windshied frame) so you'll have to notch it
the rear doors - IIRC '75 and up have barn doors, not a hatch/tailgate. You'd either have to mod your tub to use the barn doors or mod the top to accept a hatch (difficult to do I think). OR, you could mod the barn doors to work with the tailgate. Basically cut them in half. Had a picture of this once but lost it when my HD crashed. It was actually pretty slick looking :)There might be more issues with even later year tops?

Here is a MUD thread that discussed putting a hatch on a later model top.

I'm interested in the tub (actually for my neighbor who has a 66 he's restoring) but I don't have a top to trade other than a beat down Bestop Tigertop. I do have some extra hardtop glass if you need it.

how beat down send me pics and I'm not sure what year it is now I know it is the older body style but I am not sure about how to decode the vin it has a little tag that says t66 on it and the vin says fj40xxxx75

how different are they from the late 70's tubs in the rear? I might be a cash player to cut it up and use the rear.

depends on how late? there is a taper where the barn doors meet the floor that's not on the early tubs, also, sharp 90 degree corner vs. a tapered corner on some late models. width is a tad different. and, of course, different door striker holes.

I sent the pics to UB the only bad spots are the rear sill and the front of the rear inner fenders the floor pan is good just surface rust.

[QUOTE=MDH33;53386]Here's a pic of the bestop on my 40. The main problem is that part of the rear window plastic has seperated from the vinyl. Probably could be sewn up, but I didn't bother since I got my Pakistan top. I also would want to keep the windshield channel since it works with my bikini top.

I also remembered that I gave the bows and hardware to Max to see if it would work with a top he picked up but I never heard anything back from him... If he's not going to use the bows I'll have to get those back.

By the way, I have cash too if you decide to sell the tub outright. Post some pics of the condition if you have any.

I cant use it then

As I emailed back....you sent the pics as embedded instead of attachments. I guess if I get a little time I'll seperate them from the e-mail and resize them to be web friendly and post them up....

Hey Ben, thanks for hooking up my friend Doug. He has a '66 that Irbis is going to work on for him. The parts are going to a good cause. :thumb:
