    I bought Mastercraft suspension seats for my 1977 FJ40, thinking it would be a pretty easy swap. Well, I was wrong. I wasn’t thinking about how low slung the factory seats are and how high the gas tank sits under the passenger seat. I need a solution or series of solutions. I know I could spend big bucks and get a custom fuel cell made to fit under the rear of the vehicle and custom mount the seats, but I was hoping for a cheaper fix. All suggestions welcome.

    Thanks for posting up here. My only concern is I plan to link my FJ at some point. Any measurements or pics on how low it hangs down?
