Thanks Jess. The motor is a 427 Tall Deck Pulled from a 1973 C60 Truck. I have a propane kit on it from Got Propane. It will be torn down, cleaned and painted before the final install. I just put all the accessories on it so PJ could mock the chassis up accurately.

You might be single handedly saving Andy's marraige but taking this project over for him...

Thanks

Andy is going to have one nice, and comfy buggy when it is done. Glad to help on the marriage save. :) The shop is located in Mocksville, one hour north of Charlotte, NC.. thanks PJ

The only things left FJ40 will be the hood, bib, and side panels with the stock kick vents. I already have a 1977 FJ40 that is all FJ (even the stock S6 Engine), so I thought I could take some license with this one.

And Tisdale is right, marriage saved....till the next project :p

If I understand this correctly, you are wondering if there are any buggies with a 2.5T cab/clip? That wouldn't be a very good buggy imo. Not the best cab/clip choice for a buggy. So to answer the question: I sure hope not.

Anything special done to the motor? Or pretty much left it stock?

I like the build. Nice work.

Stock for the most part. High volume oil pump, aluminum single plane intake, propane, and headers. Since it is the truck version it already has a forged crank, 4 rings on the pistons, and a low grunt cam. The motor is built for longevity and low end torque, so it really fits my purpose in mostly stock form.
