LHD 73/74 built in Japan LX/ZX are not that common for global/ROW markets.
gas engines seem to be common for cars shipped to Middle East. ROW got the diesels.
06 was last year for MWB in ROW countries.
The one I would love to own and drive...
You probably already know this but it appears that you have a late model 3B engine commonly known as a 3BII. I suspect so because of the year but also your valve cover in your photo is a tip off. It is pretty similar to the 3B but has a bit...
Welcome! Looks like it will be a pretty blank slate for you to give a lot of love to.
Lots of adventure ahead, you are in a great spot for learning from the best. Plenty of really cool Troopy builds here to learn from!
We are J and K and we are “The Franks Worldwide. “
We are not some reality tv show. No, thats easy. We are two folks who decided to take up overlanding. First step: buy a troopy.
Now what do we do with our 1985 LHD MTM 3F Petrol FJ75 from Oman...
Not taking over at all. Absolutely love your 74 and pictures. Super cool and rare.

80 vs 105 flange
80 is 30-spline, 105 is 32-spline. Additional benefit, 80 short side elocked axle shaft is NLA, 105 is not. 🤠
Thanks! It is a long ways from being ready to go, but I'm excited to see how it does.
I purchased and had an H152 converted to fit the 1HD input shaft from Australia. It will be nice to have the .75 OD gear which will hopefully be a bit better...
It drives really really good. I'm pleased with it. Just need to get the suspension good. Super bumpy in the rear.
You are lucky. Most people on this forum have never been on the trails in Colorado. Fall would be my favorite time to explore...
I used to live in Denver. Right before it got crazy with too many people. Some of my best memories I had in Colorado. I hope to visit again soon with my wife and kids. Summer is the best. If we ever make it there, we'll probably go to Ouray...
Thank you! You will have to show us some pictures of that beast. Probabaly most missing cold weather and snow! 2-4” on Tuesday coming.
Last year FZJ74!!!
Is that the fuel injected or carbed 1fz?
