The Aqualu Landcruiser FJ40 replacement tub fits models that were produced in 1979 and later. This body like all Aqualu bodies is constructed from 5052 marine grade aluminum alloy that is 5/32”(.156”) in thickness. This replacement tub is designed to work with your factory steel cowl or you can opt for the aluminum replacement cowl and windshield frame (part #AQUA-4008. This tub will also work with your factory side doors, rear doors, hardtop, spare tire carrier, seats etc. We have reinforced the area where your factory spare tire carrier bolts up to but we do not recommend fitting anything other than a stock size tire/rim combination to the carrier.
We have also provided the cut-outs for the factory rear side marker lights, fuel filler, and there is also a provision in the floor for accessing the fuel gauge sending unit. Aqualu bodies do not include any nut-inserts so when it comes to mounting components you will use the nut and bolt method. The tub is shipped with a pair of our aluminum checkerplate running boards, transmission cover plate with shifter boots, Sikaflex sealant, instructional DVD and a good assortment of stainless steel fasteners to assist with the installation.
