Great info! I didn’t consider the transmission pairing with the engine.
From some quick reading, if sounds like the H151F pairs better with the 1HD-#. Does that sound about right?
Gorgeous. Colorado looks pretty nice too.
Here comes another newbie question.... what does "SW" stand for?
Also, thanks for the feedback. I hadn't connected the dots on that major distinction (livable inside is what sets the troopy apart, if needed). I guess for me, "stealth camping" would be something I'd certainly want to be able to...
All excellent points, and I agree (with those that I understand enough to agree with -- given that I haven't worked on them yet, I can't say, but they sure look easier to work on).
I'm trying to eliminate electric (at least, the more sensitive electric components involved with the primary...
Good point -- intentions are a miss by me-- I'll add to the main post, but in short:
being able to travel damn near anywhere and not have to plan far ahead for hotels, etc. (e.g. ALCAN highway, the 101, etc.)
deep woods camping with the ability to not get stranded
Oh no no, I didn't get that sense at all. It's great info, so thanks for adding the context for us newbies. I know about Prados, for instance, and assumed they were considered a 70-something based on their similar aesthetic, but wasn't sure even about that.
Excellent feedback! Thanks for the breakdown; Exactly what I was looking for.
If you're interested (being on I8MUD, I suspect you are), this is the one I'm looking at:
I met the owner last week...
Noob question time. I was looking for a FAQ section in the 70-series threads, hoping to find bullet points to help answer the following:
What are the major distinctions between the 75s and 78s? EDIT: I should've specified (now that I have a better sense) Troop Carriers. 70-series Troop...
Just throwing the net out here, since every possible Avenue adds up (and the ones I’ve tried thus far still have left me empty-handed).
Looking for a:
HDJ81 (or HDJ80)
5-Speed (manual) transmission
(Just like everybody else.)
It’s going to be an heirloom truck to work...
I’m in the same boat as you. I talked to him (he called) in early/mid Jan. I haven’t tried getting in touch since then, since we covered all I wanted at the time, but now I’m wanting to at least get a check-in, so… it sounds like I’d run into radio silence.
At this point I’d like to see if he...
I’ve been trying to get a HDJ81 5 speed for years, but finally solicited the help of an importer over a year ago after little success in tracking one down.
Yet, after a year, I’ve had as much success with an importer as I had myself. In fairness, I *hear* things are weird with imports and...
