I am looking to do a V-8 conversion in my FJ40. I want to install a vortec motor and maybe a nv4500 transmission. I do not know much about Wardens work on conversions and thought I would ask around to see if he does good work..Does anyone have Pros or Cons of this shop? Just doing some checking before I drop the Bling Bling on a V-8.

I dont know whose workin for Danny these days, maybe someone on this board does. Back when I worked there, it was mainly Jeff(now Hangtown Extreme)Rod and I doing the conversions. Take a look at some of his (shops work). That will tell you right there. Also give Jeff a call. He does some killer fabin'.

Andy is his name, he did some work for me on my FJ-40, used to work for All Pro Offroad and before that was one of the main guys at Cruiser Outfitters.

I would let Andy do my work over anyone, hell of a fabricator and a Cruiser expert.:D

Danny is closing shop but keeping the business, he can be reached through his website and email.
I don't understand, is he just going to sell parts etc thru the web or what?

Thankx for all the info out there...Sounds as if Wardens did good work...No one wrote about any conversions gone bad..But it looks like I may have to shop some place else anyway..I will do some more looking..

I couldn't say enough good things about the work that Andy can perform.. the dude is a true artist... Seems liek he will make a great addition to Marlin just as he did to All Pro and Cruiser Outfitters... :D

since your tag line on here says that you're a fireman in oakland, i think one of your brothers in arms has had and is still having a major problem with a vortec conversion that danny did on his 55. i am not passing judgement here, but from what seth has described, it's been an absolute nightmare and right now his truck is at TLC. they quoted him $5k just to get the engine to run properly by rewiring it and replacing or reprograming the computer.
maybe that's why he's going to have simon look at it next?!;)
