Has anyone in So Cal area done, or even better, have a Cummins 4BT or Isuzu swap in a 60 I could see? I wanted Toyota, but want to explore all my options.

PM if you would not mind a bunch of questions about your 60.

Thanks,

Doug

If I were to do it again, I would find a rusted out Canadian HJ 60 rig and swap the Toyota diesel over. They are coming down in price and you can find some rusted out ones for $800 - $1200 if you check the Canadian Graigslist.

D'Animal,

Thanks for the straight talk and advice. I thought Toyota would be the best route to go, but the engines and parts are harder to find than the 4BT's. We also spend a lot of time at elevations of 6 - 9,000 feet, so a turbo is a must.

The quest will continue. I'm getting close to doing this conversion.

Doug
