    That's an excellent deal. Did you buy the shifter and clutch components?

    Also-don't forget to get a rebuild kit for your transfercase. No sense going to all the trouble of the swap and not change out the seals and bearings in your transfer.

    You will love the H55F, one of the best things I did to my Cruiser... :D

    Out of all the ones here in the SLC that we dealt with, I can only think of a couple that are disgruntled, and those are guys that put them behind V8's... :D

    They didn't last too long, but it must be said that they are very agressive drivers too... :D

    Does that mean this (V8/H55) is not a good combo? I am getting ready for a V8 swap and was thinking H55...

    "$1625 to my door from Toyota of El Cajon CA. Talk to Andrew and tell Mitch sent ya"

    That's how much Stevens Creek Toyota sells them for with the TLCA discount.

    I called Toyota of El Cajon, and spoke with their parts department. Andrew was on vacation today, but I did speak with a guy (forgot to write his name down) and he rememberd the 5 speed transmission that they sent to Mitch in Ft. Worth. He's going to have Andrew get back with me next week and confirm the $1550 price plus shipping, and I'll let everyone know what I find out. I spoke with Toyota of Dallas yesterday, and they were shocked that they could offer this low of a price. The next best deal I found was liquid-offroad, which could sell them for $1650 plus shipping.

    That is a give-away price. Hurry before they come out from under the ether and close the gift shop....:D

    It it doesn't pan out I'll sell you the one I have in stock......

    How did you come to have one "in stock"? My local Toyota has never heard of one, let alone, stock it.
