Aren't you about at the point you're going to have to get a dealers license if you sell any more vehicles?

lol...just about Randy. I thought I was very happy with just the 80 and the FJ and then the BJ came along. Farnham, the first post has links, I will get some pics of the BJ up soon.

Yeah you guys are right...the cost and difficulty of finding parts makes the BJ a much tougher build...

Nobody want's to drive behind the guy in a deisel at club runs. Not even Wes. Keep the red one. Sell the smelly one.

lol.. i never knew it was so bad. I never minded being tail gunner though.

finding bj parts are not that difficult esp since the rest of it is just a 40. really only the engine if different the cases are the same as a 40, and the rest is the same. It's probably actually easier than finding some 64 parts. Depends on where you really want it to end up. Even with a turbo that thing will be a slug in the mtns. IMHO the 64 is cleaner but the diesel has the cool factor. If your going to build up the 80 i'd leave the 40 mostly as a home depot runner and mild day wheeler.
