I'd estimate roughly 8 or 9 grand depending on the condition of the drivetrain. BTW, how high does it rev in 5 gear when you're going about 70?

80 is 3g's i think

same as my taco

drive train is good

have a guy looking at H55F b/c i don't need it anymore, but now i am thinking it will be too much $$ to build right, should just go mini truck with 4.3/dualcases/4.88/37's

instead of
cruiser 350/465/(203 eventually)/205/9-60 hybrid

i love my cruiser but it costs too much

I'm gonna be getting rid of my 465 pretty soon. My current setup is 350/465/4sp. I was considering the h55f, but decided the overdrive gear isn't high enough. its something like .85 where as an nv4500 is around .73 which I more what I'm looking for.

A dozen quarters at the car wash and you should be able to get 8K for that rig.

Dude, keep the cruiser.

Sell the H55F, get a GM tranny, and buy marlins soon to be out reduction box to the split case.

You are going to pay the same money to upgrade mini axles.

Trucks are not selling for that much right now....buyers market.

I respectfully disagree, a 1970 FJ40 with drum brakes and stock condition, even upgraded with a 350 and an H55F probably won't reach $9,000 or $8,000 in the current market, I think you'll be lucky to see $6,000-$6,500, give or take depending on the location, and that's top dollar.

it is in cali

has minitruck disks

and is clean right now

the 350/h55f install were done professionally

there is no way i would stick to cruiser axels with a 350. If i keep the cruiser i will go 40's

I have all but about $1000 in parts to finish both axels
i have most of the PS stuff
TBI
465/205

It will need a doubler and 203
Cage
coilovers (maybe quater elliptic rear and coil front)

all said it needs another 4K to be done and then i would have 15K in it

If i could sell it now i could take that money and build a full mini truck

I want to keep it but it doesn't seem reasonable with no income

Keep the cruiser.:D

If you do sell it, I'd be surprised if ya got more than 60's estimated 6-6.5k. Probably more like 5k. Not trying to piss you off, but if you look around at the deals that are closing, they are for a lot less.
