F toy chassis

what are the best year frames to use for a ftoy project. Have a line on a 84 extended cab rolling chassis. Is this good for a 2 seater, what does it take chassis wise for a 4 seater

With a long bed or extended cab frame the Formula Four chassis would work best.
You can use the longer frame with the Formula Toy chassis and cut it off in the rear but people have complained that the curve in the frame for the rear axle ends up being to far back.

Only if you stuff really well. My tires hit the tubes before my axle gets close to the frame.

Xtracab with a standard chassis pushes the curve farther back and gives you more room above it for a wider rear bench seat (if you go 2+2 seater). If you're only going to be a 2-seater, don't worry about it!

Can you use a 85 4runner for the 4 seated?
