If they are stock seats, you could always strip them down, get new foam, and recover them with aftermarket replicas. Probably be a few more $$$ than junkyard seats tho.

Default Bench Seat

I'm thinking of going 3 wide for the rear bench seat and mounting it above the wheel wells (need room for the dog). Anybody else gone this route?

Alright, glad to see you didn't leave me hanging for too long

Couple questions that I had for the more experienced fellers in the club:
-Is that a Belleview winch on the front? It doesn't power out, only power in.
-If so, are they typically cable controlled? Or are wired versions available?
-Does anybody recognize that tub color as a stock color?

hard to tell on my little laptop, but it does look like a belleview. if it has a belt type brake on the side and not a toothed one, it is belleview and they are cable controlled. many people have adapted bike cables. as for the body color, i don't think so, but again, hard to tell on my screen

That's a GREAT deal on the Bestop seat...Someone should jump on it.

As for over the wheel well option for the rear seat...The problem you run into is the roll bar and roll bar options and of course the height as which heads will sit. Roomy is not a way to describe the rear of a 40

Default 5687

That 5687 is what I've got on the front of my FJ. IT seems to run strong, but I haven't tested it under load. I need to source the push/pull cables for the clutch and brake. The ones I've got are rusted and the sheathing is shot.

I sent an e-mail to 4-Wheel Drive Center of Minnesota, which according to Mud now owns the rights to see if they can get me something. Otherwise, I'll see what I can find from McMaster or similar.
