Does anyone know much about these truck that were offered from japan. It has the 12h-t motor(6 cylinder turbo diesel )and I just want to get an idea of how strong these motors actually are.

they bring these trucks into Canada. What exactly do you mean by "strong"? A deisel engine is nearly bullet proof IF well maintained. They have great torque but they are NOT drag racing engines! If you want longevity and reliability with "go anywhere" brute strength go deisel, if you want to "smoke the tires" getting there forget going deisel.

the manual tranny may be at the limit with the torque of the 12H-T, some need rebuilding every 200k km or so, otherwise it's a truly awesome truck :)

Ya I think I will throw one on the boat in the next month or so, the 74 would be my choice.

Just missed a cool unit with cable lockers, low miles. Only downside is it had the auto.

ROB THAT'S NOT A DOWN SIDE!

Damn, that auto has such a GOOD over drive that you could have put 5.29 gears in that and some 35" tires and she would have PURRED on the highway. Anybody that has wheeled hard stuff will tell you that an AUTO rocks off road!

Infact, when I get a BJ-74 I'm going to insist on an auto!

The Rubicon, Moab, all over Washington state, I've wheeled enough places to know that an auto is the way to go.

Damn.

Hmmm, learn something new everyday ahh Tom.

I am working on a HZJ80 that Land Pimp put my onto in Gig Harbour, its very close to what I wanted to pay for a high milage one owner 80.

Must thank him for the heads up, its very clean in and out and will serve my wife well.

Might be time to put the 1985 BJ60 up for sale.

Rob, that rig down in Gig Harbor is a Fzj 80 not an Hzj.


Sigh.
