Actually I was wrong - I just got done removing the headlight and bezel from my 1978 FJ45 (see my encounter with falling rock in the for sale/wanted section), and there is a bucket, it's just way different than the ones on my 1971. The 1971 buckets are hemispherical and more complete, the later model buckets are kind of stamped with shoulders, maybe a bigger hole where the connector goes. I'll put a couple photos up here when I take them, maybe later this evening.
