Model:  FJ40 / FJ43 / FJ45 / BJ40 / BJ41 / BJ42 / BJ44 / BJ46 / BJ43 / HJ46 / HJ47

Years: 1968 - 1984 (Any year with a soft top)

Description:  These soft top tightening loops are commonly referred to as footman loops; they are located on the outside rear fenders as well as on the tailgate / barn door area.  This is an OEM spec piece made out of stainless steel.  Finish includes 2 pre-drilled holes.  Does not include hardware.

Hints:  *OEM had qty of 12 loops for an FJ40/BJ40 soft top
**OEM had 3 installed on each 'barn door' in rear tailgate area.  And 3-4 more on each qtr panel;  4 or more for longer wheelbase models FJ43, HJ47, etc** 

***OEM welded the barn door / tailgate area; but used sheet metal screws on fenders.  We prefer a more modern approach; i.e. use rivets or bolts with rivnuts all the way around***
