The Tamiya FJ40's wheelbase is just under 10 inches, or about an inch too short. You could fudge it on there with some creative fender trimming, but it wouldn't be a real good fit.

I own a Tamiya FJ40 body and planted it on a scx10 chassis.
I had to shorten the links heaps to get the wheel base to fit.
your best bet is to buy the bushwacker body from pro-line, Im pretty sure thats a better fit on the high-lift chassis


this is mine

Supra is selling off his Proline FJ body. Fitted to a Bruiser (same WB as High Lift). It is the old one (not the Bushwhacker), prior to licensing disputes. Perfect condition, meticulous paint, off road decals in the windows, and a ProLine roof rack. $35
