Hi folks: With the increasing popularity of diesel engines being transplanted into 80 series Land Cruisers, I thought it would be neat to see everyone's rig all in one spot. These are my reasons for starting this thread: 1) Lots of people have done transplants with Toyota and non-Toyota diesel engines. 2) It would be neat to read about everyone's rigs and their experiences all in one thread. 3) I am hoping to have everyone include a link to their separate build threads so that a browser can get a quick glimpse/summary of the truck in this Registry thread, and then click on the link of the rig they're interested in and read the more detailed stuff. 4) It would be an easy resource for those who are in the process of planning their own swap...they can just browse through this Registry thread and click on the rigs they are interested in and see if it's for them or not. I know we have a Search engine, but wouldn't this be a neater way for those specifically interested in a swap? So...this is the format I propose: 1. Year and model of the original truck. 2. Brief details of the Drivetrain that was swapped in. 3. What went really well with the swap? 4. What was unexpectedly difficult with the swap? 5. Mods...aside from drivetrain, if any? 6. Driving impressions after the swap...including drivability in daily driving (if applicable), highway travel, and, of course, off pavement. 7. Realistic fuel consumption after the swap...lol. 8. Five star rating for overall difficulty of the swap: *=relatively easy, *****=don't even attempt it unless you have some real good friends who are really handy. 9. 2 to 3 pictures of your rig. 10. A link to your own build thread with all the juicy details and pictures. Oh yeah, as much as possible, try to limit the chat in this thread. Either PM the rig owners with the questions that you have, or post them in the owner's build thread. That's it so far...and I'll put up my post in a little bit.
