Do you have a build thread?

About how much did it cost to build

X2,

It looks like you bedlined the exterior? Have you taken it many places? I am wondering how the wood is holding up from vibration.

Probably will not get out until May at the earliest.
I think it's the only time you've used it.

Has the fj been off road ever?

It's an OKA, Australian built truck. Uses Dana 60 in the front and dana 70 rear, Perkins Phaser 110 4cyl 4.0L engine.

Holds 220 litres of diesel and mine has 2 water tanks under the tray with a 300L capacity. Dual batts on slide out trays under the cabin, one each side.

The older models like mine, the XT and LT have the perkins engines, the new NT models run, the Cummins 4cyl ISB.

There aren't that many of them, well under 1000 made.

They come in a few different body configurations, single cab, dual cab, multi cab and bus, all on the same chassis and can be interchanged. Turning a single cab into a dual cab is simply getting the dual cab module and removing the rear of the single cab and bolting it together with the rear panel put on the rear of the dual cab module.

So far i have found it very capable, haven't gotten it bogged, yet. Getting a 15000 pound runva hydraulic winch for mine and running a pump off the back of the compressor of the cummins.
