Keep us updated Troy. Working kidneys is a good start... Hopefully they keep going in the right direction.


See, that's where you are adding in cost and time- 2 things I'm trying to avoid.

I now would have to buy Ranger trans, front diff, rear diff, transfer case, figure out the electronics (with 3 vehicles), and still get all that stuff mounted.

Rangers, Tacomas, and sidekick/samari/trackers are easiest, as adapters are available.

(the non ranger ones are available here: ACME ADAPTERS Suzuki Samurai Turbo Diesel)


My ideal goal- Crewcab(ish), 4x4, diesel, 40(ish) mpg truck. I've got a few (really bad) idea bouncing around in my noggin...

I have a hard time believing this will pay for itself in any reasonable amount of time. It must be more of a novelty thing.
