    Well the install was much more strait forward than I firstly anticipated.

    Only real boot fab was taking the fitting off the toyota speedo cable and adapting it to the speed sensor provided. The problem being the kit comes with a mechanical speed sensor or transducer.

    Everything went in very well, first time around took about 6 hrs, should be able to shave some time off the next one.

    Been thinking about offering a 24 volt version, kinda nice for those long trips.

    12 volt kit cost around 700.00.

    Two controlers if prefered, one dash mounted left and the other steering columb mounted.


    I will test drive and adjust the unit later this week after the long range fuel tank, turbo and conditioning is installed.

    Well, the verdict is in..............

    No adjusting needed and works perfect, I would definitly do this install for myself. Especially with the turbo installed, on the island highways I left it in 5th with not a problem.

    Not sure if it would climb the Malahat.

    Dieseldog, I have not forgotten you and will send the PM soon, this day started at 5:00AM and finished at 10:30PM.

    John: I know this is a super old thread, but are there any solutions around for cruise control for a 1993 HZJ77? :)

    Bahh. My 3Bs have always had cruise control! It's the throttle cable under the dash. Nice job by the way.
