Very nice. Are you keeping those rims/tires on the truck? I'll have to keep an eye out once she comes on the market. Does the 40 have power steering or AC?

Thank you.

It was painted a flat/satin. I'll ask the painter and post up the info.

Not sure about a price yet. I'd love to trade it for an HJ45 Troopy or something similar.

I can't imagine selling that! But how much? Ebay just says reserve not met....

Amaurer H55's for 3B's are common in Canada. And it is not just the nose cone/bearing retainer but also the input shaft that is different than a gas rig H55. I understand that there is a different topcover for the tranny when it is used in a 42 that is much harder to find. But I don't know if this is true or not as I have not seen the different top cover.

I know, that wasn't the issue. Beast II had a long saga on this board where he bought a brand new H55 from Toyota and swapped in a 3B input shaft. The nose cones change by shaft type and also by year - that was the ordeal. Obviously he managed to get it going, however. :D

Looks great man.

Why are you selling? After all that work to get the right H55 nosecone?!?!?! :D

Thanks man. You of all people know how much has gone into her. In fact, without your help, the transmission/transfer case never would've gone in.

I'm hesitant to sell it, but one of the toys has to go as I just picked up an off-road trailer.

I had a deadbeat buyer on Ebay :mad:, so it is re-listed at a 'buy it now' price of $18,995. This is a steal considering I have over $30k into it . . . C'est la vie.
