I can tell you that a diesel is rare in the US and it will be the slowest, most uncomfortable ride you've ever had in a vehicle. A BJ42 will get 25+mpg and will last forever mechanically. Not sure on parts down there as they aren't as plentiful as up here but you should be able to source most parts either new or used. It's surprising how much stuff the Toyota dealers can still get for my 77. If i have the chance to get a BJ42 before I buy the new tub for my FJ I'll buy it in a heart beat. Unfortunatley, the diesels are either totally destroyed or in mint shape and selling for a fortune. Good luck. .....Steve
