I'd love to see more pictures and hear more about the G-Wagen, I will be looking for a new 4x4 in the next few weeks. I'd been thinking UZJ100, but have always been a sucker for the G-Wagen.

I've got more pics of the G-wagen but they're large. I can send to email or let me resize and post.

I bought the G-wagen to swap in a 5-cyl MB turbodiesel. According to the G forum, its a direct bolt-in. Only need to mod exhaust and swap yoke from g tranny to sedan tranny. I just can't find the time.

Was the engine new when swapped in, or is there 40k since the conversion? More pics would be great, especially of the engine bay and underneath. Has it ever been repainted? Was it a professional conversion?

I am shopping for a 60/62 and would like to see some pictures and get some more info on the conversion. I'm a ways off but have access to cheap airfare so long as the truck is up to the trip home.

Where you buying in CO?
I grew up in Noble and Norman, live in Tulsa now. Bought place in Steamboat springs last year kicking around a 60 or 62 for the mountains. Can you send me additional info at jonthamilton@hotmail.com,

Just got in CO from Moab an hour ago, heading back too Oklahoma tomorrow. Snow was 15 feet deep on buffalo pass last week. Not much cruising the mountains for awhile.

More info on the 60 - I bought the engine from a fellow mudder in Dallas a few years ago who knew the mileage. My brother and I installed it together with a newly rebuilt Bowtie Overdrives 700R4 about 5 years ago. It has the stock transfer case with an AA adapter. Rust repair and re-spray was done professionally about that same time. I'll get some pics of the engine bay up a little later.

Yakima rack was in first pic, but does not go with the truck.

I believe I'm the third owner of the LX. The second owner towed it behind an RV and had it serviced at the Lexus dealer. When I bought it, I baselined the truck with all new fluids and then did the big PM items. Just replaced plugs, rotor, cap and air intake hose about 2 weeks ago and it runs great. Just got 17 mpg coming back from the Pecos in NM (it's downhill to OKC). If it weren't for the opportunity to buy the land/cabin on the Conejos in S. Colo., I would probably put new A/T tires on it this summer.
