    I’ve had no issues. This is a 3,300cfm fan? I think. All the reviews were from big block muscle car guys saying it keeps their 454s and stuff cool. I haven’t had my pig in the mtns in the summer yet, but it does move a metric s*** ton of air for sure. @nvrlose54 has the same one in his chebby...

    @yOHda From what I know, the 2UZ has been described as a “truck” motor and the 1UZ as a “car” motor. Both awesome, but the 2 should more TQ at lower RPM. Both light years ahead of a 22RE or 2F. Toyota did a ton of research and design on the 1UZ. Ton. I have had one set of Rockwell’s and they...

    @yOHda Thanks! I want to put a 5 speed in a CC 1st gen :) :) this truck is 1,500lb lighter than a 100 series, gives it a lot of pep too @merbesfield ha! I’m just some old dummy. I’ve had a bunch of rock crawlers over the years and being poor, had to fix myself. Slowly collect tools and “skills”.

    Deo has something else up his sleeve 100% chance. He’s put over 30k miles on that rig. Craziness. Road Warrior. I think/hope it goes in the 40s. Like you said, hope a Toyoda nerd who really appreciates the drivetrain will get it and drive like it’s meant to be.

    It has actually made me really bummed he’s selling. I went and put about 75miles on mine today just to remember how awesome it is. It’s really awesome too! I love rowing through the gears and giving Heeps a wave while the drivers girlfriends check me out :D True story, at a gas station, a kid...

    Deo’s rig 100% inspired mine! He’s a friend and I lusted over his rig except I really wanted a 5 speed. Mine would not exist if not for his. I wish mine wasn’t blue so they could be brothers but not twins :D

    this set up is really really really fun to drive Thank you. it’s on the list! I just delivered my ‘69 to 2,080 miles to Montana. Between that and this Pig, I’ve put 5-6,000 miles on pigs in 3ish months. Have to take a little break and ride in something that the doors close all the way and...

    M12 compressor did great. Just let it cool. I’ve used it 5? Times to air 35”s up from 15 to 33 psi. Just not in a hurry. It’s really made for trailer tires
