Lost,

Not that I'm interested in the truck, but just to clarify/avoid confusion, is the asking price in the Canadian or the US currency?

BTW, the gas mileage is similar to what I get in my diesel 80.

It's not turbo-ed, is it?

ANYWAY, good luck to your friend!

That thing must be SLOOOOW.....I am now driving a bj60 5 speed with stock gearing and 31's....IT is slow, so I can only imagine that thing!

What gearing is he running? I know when I put a turbo on my bj62 which has 411 gears and 31's it was a major improvement.

With a turbo that thing MAY have a chance......

80 series - 1995kg
60 series - 1895kg
40 series - 1800kg

None would be fast, but I have no doubt a 3B can move an 80 as well as it moves a 40.

it moves like a cruiser, slow and steady. in canada the speed limit is 100k/hr, which is not hard to get to/ maintain. there is little difference in weight from other trucks that 3b. consider as well the 3b/h55 is not has heavy has 3fe/a440.

|(there is a thread started in 80s forum about this truck as well. maybe you want to move tech q's/chitchat there, keep this thread for the sale.)

Build INfo

Interested in any build info on this rig, as I am thinking about doing this exact swap 3B/H55 with an FJ62 transfer case. I was also concerned about weight, but after calculations in gear and people in my rig I don't think it is a big deal.

80 series - 1995kg - 4398lbs
60 series - 1895kg - 4178lbs

Looks like the difference is only ~ 200lbs. With me driving a 60 it would weigh as much as an 80, right? I don't think weight is an issue. Bump for the 3B!:D

okay, i wheeled with this truck this past weekend and i can tell you that 3B powers the 80 nicely over all the mud and hills we tackled. 3B, H55F, 2 piece t/case... that bloody thing rocked on the trail.

the install needs tidying up but it worked well...

not bad for a mall buggy.

no leaks, no lockers, brakes a few months ago, along with axles seals, and even some bearings,
the top end of the motor is just rebuilt, theres a lot of work put in this one, it is a daily driver

this truck is well maintained by a diesel technicial
