Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster here.. picked up a 86 5spd diesel trooper a few months back to get into some trail driving and as a daily driver. Well the motor kicked a rod about 600 miles after I got the rig with a “freshly” rebuild motor.. guess tightening rod cap bolts wasn’t part of the job.. anyways I also acquired the drivetrain from an 88 bj74 to repower my Isuzu and get it back on the road. An 13bt with a440f, seemingly low mileage combo.

since getting the rig. I went through it front to back with seals and bearings, put in ome rear springs and shocks all around, built a stainless downpipe for the turbo and an air intake setup.

I’m currently in the beginning states of starting a solid axle swap with the axle from the bj74 and will be swapping to the rear Toyota axle as well.

anyways here’s a few pictures of the rig and the current state after popping the motor. Thanks for looking.

Ifs frame brackets all cleaned off and started getting the bj front axle mocked up. Rear mounts fabricated and tacked into place. Going to need to make some gussets for the insides of the hangers. Now need to figure out shackle hangers for the front and find some bushings.

Fabricated front shackle hangers last night, need to the correct bushings to show up and I can get this thing back to being a roller. And then hopefully start working on the steering and shock mounts later this week
