Re: Need Project

Lightbulb Re: Need Project

How 'bout putting a 302 into a Triumph GT6+? I always wanted to try it but was never bored enough. Let me know how it turns out.

TIM

BTW, I was planning on using a 5 speed out of a late model Mustang.

Interesting you mention this. I was in Tijuana the other day bc someone I know has a business down there anyway I saw a yard with maybe 12 cjs and tjs and 12 FJ40s. Down the street from my house there is a Chevy fullsize pickup on blocks, 4x4, maybe 1975 model, needs restored, would love to worke on that if I had the time and $. Someone I know in CO had a toyota landcruiser as a farm vehicle, cool but only had 4 spd though. I'll keep my eyes peeled anyway.

Re: Need Project

I personally would love to have a brand new FJ40 pickup that they sell in Africa. It has a 6cyl 24valve turbo diesel and electric lockers front and rear from factory....

Remi, put 400 XJs on one trail like the Con....I bet you'd see just as many broken parts. As far as waltzing, some people can dance, some can't.

Just pokin' fun...

It must have been a bad day for the '40s.... My 77 FJ40 ended up rusting to death. It drove good but the body couldn't keep up..... (Oh yeah and Birfields suck!)
