"What's the price and mileage?"
Diesel Toyz, up till recently, charged $20,000+ to convert a [email protected] Now, they won't even do a conversion on a 1st-gen, and they're only selling already-converted, newer [email protected] So, I'm asking $22,[email protected] Considering the engine is essentially NEW, the time invested in labor, AND there's a nice truck to go with it, I believe I'm pricing [email protected] The body and rear axle (hubs too) have 276k on [email protected] I know the mileage of the rest of the truck is high, but almost everything mechanical has been replaced or is new.

"How do I get this registered?"
You must register it in a county that does not require emissions [email protected] This truck is equipped with an engine that was never sold in the USA, and therefore does not have an EPA certification to which it can be tested, and will not pass, even if it is "cleaner" than any diesel sold [email protected] I realize it limits the potential buyers, but that's just the way it goes.

"So, is it hard to get parts?"
Not [email protected] Roughtraxx 4x4 in the UK has a TON of parts on the shelf for this motor, and everything else can be found on eBay from JDM [email protected] I never had any trouble finding [email protected] For example, you can order OEM Toyota oil filters for this motor on Amazon
"What if somethings breaks, or there's a wiring issue?"
I will include all my wiring diagrams and spreadsheets to the buyer, as well as all other documentation (pictures, service history, which I have kept down to the T), I will make myself available via email or phone to help troubleshoot if something goes wrong, since I built the thing!

"So, anything else wrong with it?"
Here's a list of all tiny issues that I can think of:
- No cruise control (the battery takes the place of the actuator, and you'd need to fab another throttle bracket on, but I will include the actuator if someone wants to add it)
- Radio antenna has been removed (I took it off because it hits the CB antenna, but I will include the antenna if you want to put it back on)
- Tailgate looks nice from 10 feet, but has some dents and scratches, and is sorta delaminating on one side (I will include a spare tailgate that just needs a tiny bit of bondo and then color-match, or we can work that into the price)
- Driver's seat trim panel missing (I kept kicking it off so I just removed it)
- Cracked lower rocker panel plastic trim
- Various scratches, only a couple actual dings
- Tiny bit of surface rust on bottom of tailgate (see picture)
- Small hole drilled in dome light for mounting a reverse camera switch
- Scratch in paint on dash (see pictures)
- Sap on the hood
- A few stains on the carpet

"What about service history?"
I have a 100+ line spreadsheet documenting everything I've done personally to the [email protected] You're welcome to check the carfax on your [email protected] VIN number is 5TEWN72N61Z864680

There's my honest list of all the "little" things. I'm listing every little thing for full disclosure, but for not being a show truck, it's in darn nice shape.
