    Builds 1992 FZJ75 Troopy - Project or Profit?

    Right?! If I could find new ones in that pattern... or a clean bolt of the material... I'd be doing it in my Troopy just for the Omani nostalgia.

    Well... this truck made it here. Driving the 1FZ-F has been pretty magical... but this one is going to go up for "profit". It'd be a lot of work to get this truck to where I've gotten mine. But dang that 1FZ zooms compared to my 3F. Oodles of photos in the classifieds post. 1992 FZJ75 For Sale

    That Chas/Shas is from the same broker that did the Troopy, though another buyer. We did however coordinate on shipping to get a discount.

    Yeah, I'm not sure I want to take on the scale of an engine swap project. But the thought had crossed my mind. And yeah, a 1FZ with a Sniper seems to be a pretty killer setup. A the end of the day what got me to jump on this was proving a concept... that concept being the importation of a...

    Somehow I don't think I'm going to get to hold a poll on Option 3. Ha! Yeah. Once it's here we'll see if the 1FZ is everything I dream it is... or better. That's AN option... but it also depletes my spending money on other projects. Better to have the cash to improve one Troopy than to have...

    So I bought it in February... and it was scheduled to ship in March and that vessel canceled it's port call to Oman. So I've been waiting and we finally got another vessel lined up. Export work has been done and the truck will be loaded up on July 2. Plans for this truck are somewhat up in the...

    The biggest concern I have with Troopy's out of Oman... the rear floor. They often get Swiss-cheesed with rivets and screws from putting in diamond plate material... or they get pruned by repeated loading/unloading of personnel and equipment over and over. I'm also concerned about rust in the...

    I asked for his price, he asked something way too high, I let it drop. Fast forward to February and he still has it. I ask him to go deeper on the photos. Several back-and-forth photo sessions of him sending a photo... me marking it up and asking for close-ups and more detail... and him sending...

    It presented as a typical sample of an Omani truck. It's been repainted. It's been kept running. It's a former school bus. The government has recently put a maximum age on vehicles used as school buses as well as some safety requirements... so a lot of these long-time school bus Troopy's are...

    "So I tripped and fell and bought another Land Cruiser..." It sounded like a good story, but my wife didn't fall for it. Nevertheless, I married well, so this wasn't really a necessary tale. Back in December 2021 I got pinged about a Troopy... a 1992 FZJ75. I've been toying with grabbing...
