    2018 Lone Star Cruiser Round Up

    I still have all the equipment, but haven't brewed in a few years due to life becoming crazy busy.

    2018 Lone Star Cruiser Round Up

    Holy cow, can’t believe my login still worked. You can blame Havis for me being in this thread. I’m trying to find a way to get the 45 there. Can I register on-site if I can actually pull this off?

    Finally done.

    Yep. I'm going to redo a couple things (steering wheel and gauges), but overall I am very pleased. I've put about 700 miles on it, and it runs/drives beautifully.

    Thanks! Color is Toyota 6H9... it is more green in person, but it just doesn't photograph color-correct... here is a pic where it comes off as really green... I'm very happy with it.

    Newbie (Neverbie?) Buying Decision -- 45's for the oversized?

    I'm 6'4" 225 lbs, and daily drove a stock 45lpb for a while. Once I got used to the steering wheel being 2" from my chest it wasn't all that bad. I definitely had more room in my 40 though.

    Which diesel to put in my 45lpb...

    The 4BT is something Proffitt had sitting in his shop, and it is freshly rebuilt. The tranny is also a fresh rebuild. As far as I know they came from independent sources. Thanks for the heads up on the Orion. I'll check out the tq rating. I had my fj40 for a few years before I started...

    Which diesel to put in my 45lpb...

    Mark, Send me a list and I'll see what I can do. I'm going to keep the glass fuel filter as a paper weight. :p And after daily driving the 45 in Houston traffic, there is nothing you could have done/said that would change my mind. :) -mike.

    Which diesel to put in my 45lpb...

    Time to piss some people off... Did some horse trading with Proffitt yesterday, and worked out a deal I couldn't resist. My driveline will be 4BT->th475->Orion HD on sprung over fj60 axles. I'm also adding A/C, power steering, and all of life's comforts. As for staying stock, this 45 had...

    Which diesel to put in my 45lpb...

    They mentioned it will take the better part of a year. It is entirely possible that I'll pick it up for the '09 Cruise Moab. I stopped driving it about 15 months ago, so at least I have some space in my garage again. :D

    Which diesel to put in my 45lpb...

    I dropped the truck at Proffitt's on Friday for a full frame-off resto-build. These are the diesel options I have to choose from. I was originally going to go with the Ram Jet 350, but I changed my mind. From what I've been reading a lot of people like the 12HT, and that they are pretty...

    Which diesel to put in my 45lpb...

    I have to make a decision soon about which diesel to put in the 45. Here is my list of choices: Cummins 4BT Toyota 1HDT Toyota 12HT Toyota 1HZ Cummins is fresh from the factory... well factory rebuilt. All Toyotas are used. Guess I could make this a poll.
