    70 Products -- TRAIL TAILOR

    @TRAIL TAILOR I was thinking about bumpers. I don't know about everyone else, but one thing I have noticed is a lack of basic stubby and high clearance bumpers available for 70 series. In my case I don't plan on running a tire bigger than a 35 and my suspension will be only tall enough to allow...

    1993 LJ70 2LT LHD 5-speed manual Prado looking for a new engine swap, please leave suggestions, thank you :)

    If you’re going with gas, just go LS and make it easy on yourself, you can adapt any number of Toyota manuals to it and there is a roadmap to swap it into just about anything. Sure it isn’t Toyota anymore, but after the Toyota porn factor wears off an LS will serve you well and is so easy. If...

    70 series newbie...which diesel engine

    I get it. I'm not saying you're wrong. But I've worked in motorsports with all sort of s***ty 4x4s, driven them all over the country and beat the crap out of them for money. A brand new $40K Jeep would overheat in the same spot I was just mentioning up until Jeep put on its big boy pants and...

    70 series newbie...which diesel engine

    This! Yes! I don't worry about how fast I'm going anymore. It drives my wife crazy when she's being intense but that's about it. I had a 400hp small block powered mini truck and that mofo ripped. I got speeding tickets and broke a lot of stuff. I'm over it. If that's your thing you can swap...

    70 series newbie...which diesel engine

    I drove mine cross country in the middle of the hot summer. Was it amazing on the divide? No... but it did it. I had to kill the AC once driving through the middle of the desert on my way back to LA on the 15 on that long grade back up to the mountains, but that's about it. It was fast enough to...

    No, auto tranny kills the fun on all of these less than super powerful motors. Take what I say for what it's worth, I can't stand a slush box in anything with under 400 hp.

    70 series newbie...which diesel engine

    Yeah but 1HDT didn't come in 70s and also the 1HZ has zero issues. Doesn't the 1HDT have bottom end issues? I guess if you're doing a rebuild yourself just to make sure you're safe. I have driven a 1HDT powered 80 series and it had some serious shove, I liked it a lot. That being said I'm going...

    Just stumbled on your build, very nice looking truck! I need to start my thread....

    Why not just run a split case with 4:1 gears and keep your life simple? Not than there is anything wrong with NV4500s, but no fancy adapters required if you keep it all Toyota, it'll all just bolt in.

    70 series newbie...which diesel engine

    I have owned a 1HZ powered HZJ73 and I currently own a bitchin 13B-T powered BJ74. I can say unequivocally that while the 13B-T is fun and I don't dislike it, the 1HZ is a vastly superior motor in every way except for the fact that the 13B-T is a simple tractor motor that I can tinker on with...

    70 Products -- TRAIL TAILOR

    Ok... well.... s***.... I got really excited there I really like your stuff... what about an "interior tube assembly for mounting of accessories for off road use only" that happens to have seat belts? ;)

    On this note, built in speaker mounts for the rear, possibly in from door panels too.

    70 Products -- TRAIL TAILOR

    Dude. So exciting. Seriously, roll cage with rear seat belts and a rear set belt kit. Can be the back half like the factory Euro rear, or even better some sort of slick cage that integrates into the factory "roll bar" thingy and hides in the front, kinda like what you see with modern set ups for...

    I drove one with an auto and it really kills the performance. I am also really anti-slush box so take what I say with that in mind, but a 1HZ with a 5 speed is enough to do whatever you want.
