    For Sale FS 1984 LHD High-Roof Turbo HJ60 - SOLD

    I've never been down that far, but a few connections for you: I only know two mechanics in Baja. Monchi in Punta Banda (near Ensenada) and Alfein in San Felipe. Both build/mod/fix race trucks and are top notch mechanical wizards and could do a transmission swap. I know of a body shop in San...

    Nice. Does it line up with the troopy mounting points?

    FREE BJ74 Rear Bench Seat Washington

    Would a rear seat from a '74 fit a '75 troopy? Mine is an RV / 6 seat configuration but I'm missing the forward-facing rear bench & seatbelts.

    For Sale 75 series Troopy rear seats

    I don't suppose you happen to have a forward-facing seat? Mine has the RV 6 seat configuration but is missing the rear bench. I don't think I can install these without custom mounts (unless you happen to have the wheel well mount points?). I don't think I'd get seat belts with side jump...

    Wanted  WTB: Rear seats & seat belts for 75 Troopy

    I'm looking for a forward-facing rear seat with rails and seat belts for my hzj75 troopy. It's got the 6 seat RV configuration, but I bought it without the rear seat (had a custom storage shelf/bed built into the back). I can see mounting holes and the VIN plate shows it should have a 6 seat...

    Roger that. The radiator was recently re-cored. I'll check on the fan clutch. Not sure if I can get a pyro fitted on this trip but it is on the project list.

    Bought a 1990 HZJ75 Troopy

    She's at Valley Hybrids getting good once-over before our inaugural roadtrip to Baja. It had a pretty bad fuel leak at the IP, so that's getting rebuilt, along with injectors. It's also getting brakes, transmission/transfer case rebuilt, wheel bearings, and a few other things. This is a good...

    In Australia hunting parts for my Troopy, Anybody need anything?

    Roger that. I'm just getting started looking at other people's builds. I've been watching too much 4xoverland lately.

    In Australia hunting parts for my Troopy, Anybody need anything?

    Thanks. Even an external screen would be an improvement. I'll take what I can get. Do you have any recommendations on things I should be looking for that are easier found in Australia? I just bought a 1990 Australian Troopy. I'm still learning the platform. My goal is to build it up for...
