    ROTW Trim Levels

    While this isn't the most interesting topic on the board, I am having difficulty finding trim levels in non-USA models (ROTW). For example, a 200 Series in Oz can be had in GX, but only comes with a 1VD-FTV and a 6 speed automatic transmission. Some mod cons are also included, i.e. it isn't a...

    Builds 75 Series cab on 80 series chassis with Cummins 6BT

    I have seen an ISB5.9 on an engine stand in a diesel shop and it is amazing to me that engine will fit in an 80 Series Land Cruiser. Do you have concerns with the Toyota components taking the weight of a 1200 pound engine? Cool build, man. If you combine a 75 and an 80, wouldn't the result be...

    Builds Isuzu 4HE1TC into FJ62

    Fixed it for you. This is not an Isuzu Rodeo board, nor is there any such vehicle as an "FJ". The 'F' refers to the motor, i.e. F, 2F, 3FE, etc. The 'J' refers to the truck series. Thus, a BJ40 and an FJ40 are nearly identical, save the engine. Both are J40 series Land Cruisers. :D Should you...

    Has anyone siped Goodrich Krawlers?

    BFG specifically states that Red Label tires are not to be used in cold weather. The compound is formulated to flex and grip when it gets warm. When cold, it will become hard and brittle, leaving you with a very poor performing tire. For winter driving, tires should be removed and stored...

    Builds NEW Cruiser buggy - Sunray Engineering

    Does it still have the 1550's in the axles? That was pretty wild for the times to see that steering angle front and rear.

    Builds Mercedes OM606 Turbodiesel into FZJ80 - engine refresh and more turbo fun

    Great build sir. Hats off to you for all of the DIY on the ECM/TCM, injectors and so on. Do you have a wet weight or dimensions on the 606 by chance? Cheers

    NEVER QUIT Overland's Extreme Isuzu NPR Build & 4x4 Conversion

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I have not been on the board in a while, so apologies for the lack of updates. The owner of the truck has been traveling, the camper box is being built by another company and the owner of the fab shop doing the work is taking some time off. That said, here are a few...

    a few more pics Crossmembers were made to be removable so they could be powder coated, then installed. There are two layers of 11 gauge steel through bolted with rated fasteners.

    NEVER QUIT Overland's Extreme Isuzu NPR Build & 4x4 Conversion

    NEVER QUIT Overland's Extreme Isuzu NPR Build & 4x4 Conversion

    Time for a quick Saturday morning update. I was at Matt's shop yesterday to meet a potential customer, wanting a 4x4 conversion done on an NPR to surf in California and Baja. Springs from Alcan arrived for the Never Quit truck and Matt was able to get the CAD files that he needed from Warn...

    NEVER QUIT Overland's Extreme Isuzu NPR Build & 4x4 Conversion

    I stopped by Matt's shop yesterday to give him a ride to the dealership and pick up the new NPR. It was quite interesting to see the trucks side by side and to see the reaction of all the Isuzu salesmen and mechanics who seemed to be very interested in the 4WD conversion. Only one or two of them...

    A few updates have been made to the original post and we will try to keep it updated as changes are made to the build sheet instead of making a new post each time. Lighting details would not fit in the first post, so they follow below: A few updates have been made to the original post and we...

    NEVER QUIT Overland's Extreme Isuzu NPR Build & 4x4 Conversion

    I am posting this for two friends; one is building the truck and one is the owner/customer. Several weeks ago, Matt at Angry Iron Metalworks in Georgia, was contacted by NEVER QUIT Overland, to explore the possibility of getting a 2019 Isuzu NPR crew cab, converted to 4WD. After seeing and...

    Work Weekend at Ralph's

    How did this event turn out? Hope everyone got some trail riding in and enjoyed the nice weather. It was in the high 20's along the GA/NC border Friday night and Saturday night, so I presume Dawsonville was about the same for anyone who was brave enough to camp at Ralph's.

    Work Weekend at Ralph's

    Dogs are not a problem ALA they are friendly. There are usually other dogs there, so laid back hippie dogs that get along with other dogs are probably best :D
