I aim to misbehave
Hell yeah! We have a trip planned to Sedona AZ next year in the 60 and am really hoping i can get it dialed before then. I REALLY didnt want to drive the 2f across the country. That would have been terrible100% yes. I still have a few minor things to work out, but I'd jump in it and drive cross country tomorrow if I needed to.
TW does not use OEM factory Toyota joints. I'll take a Toyota u-joint any day of the week over a 1350 or 1310.Woody, do you like them over TW?

JE Reel is doing FACTORY OEM slips, flanges, u-joints, etc...with their own tube. I have one in the rear of my FZJ80 and have one going into the rear of my new buggy build....that is going to be on 42 stickys
JE Reel has been working to source the factory Toyota stuff for a couple years. Knowing how busy Jim and his team is, it will be another year or three until they get anything online.
So... bad news. Lokar shifter is weeks out, Advance adapters is a month+ out. I freaking hate covid. Georg is checking what hes got on the adapters. If he doesnt, Marks4wd in australia has the exact same kit AA does it looks like so might have to order directly from them and pay arm and a leg on shipping it to the states
Someone had to be sitting on all that somewhere.
Unless something has changed AA sources the adapters from Marks. They may make their own now but when I did my V8 swap I ordered directly from Marks in AUSTRALIA on a Thursday and they were on my porch when I got home from work the following Tuesday. My advice is to skip the middle man and go direct, PayPal will handle the currency conversion. As far as shipping goes air freight was $120 in 2016 dollars.
Pertaining to the shifter check summit, JEGS, speedway etc as they stock a lot of Lokar parts.
Going to cal them tonight. I ordered a oil pressure and water temp adapter from them last week and it was no issues on the conversion and everything. That’s the last ditch option if Georg doesn’t have a complete kit I thinkUsing PayPal I've ordered several parts from vendors in Australia over the last few weeks. Suggest using Australia Post if it's an option. DHL sucks. Good luck.
I’m hoping that guy is Georg. He’s checking what he has in the shop and is going to get back to me. He said he’s got bits and pieces but is seeing if he’s
damn I had no idea! I was looking on the marks website and they legitimately look identical in the pictures. They are like 13 hours ahead of us here, going to give them a call tonight.
I’ve been calling around for the shifter stuff, it seems everyone just drop ships straight from Lokar. I’m looking for the black cable operated 12 inch shifter and everyone I’ve checked with so far says lokar is on back order. I haven’t given up yet though. Seems people don’t keep those in physical Much
