My 60 has a v8 and I love it.

but... my 40 will stay stock with the 2F. It is slow and I am ok with that. The v8 swaps take time, money, and patience. Your truck with the stock motor is already figured out for you. That's pretty nice.

There's a long thread on MUD right now in the 40 series section where folks are debating F series vs. SBC:
http://forum.ih8mud.com/40-55-series...f-engines.html

Marco's 60 is sweet, and so are Dave and Kim Brown's FJ40s (as well as a few other V8-40s in the club), but there's something cool about a stock '64:
http://forum.ih8mud.com/fj25-owners-...re-thread.html

And BTW, if you do swap out the F135 at any point don't just huck it; there are many people on MUD who would like to get their hands on pieces and parts from it for their restorations...

A well-running F/2F isn't all that bad, especially if your tires aren't monstrous. There are many of us in the club running F series engines that have driven them all over Colorado and Utah with no problems. Mine has no problem cruising at 65-70 mph all day long on road trips to Utah, the central mountains or the west slope. Just bring ear plugs and prepare to not pass anybody going up the steep grades. It's no big deal. Have you gotten a chance to get out with it and actually see what it's like driving around?

I've only driven it a few times and that was prior to the axle swap. I didn't really pay too much attention to how it was driving because I was too worried about stopping. I know Kim and Dave Brown pretty well. Dave is my neighbor and has pulled me out numerous times after getting stuck while plowing. I had my 40 when I moved next door but did really consider the possiblities until I saw his!

If you want to keet to -6 and want performance, a TBI set up with an adapter to the factory air cleaner will keep it "toyota" and have a major performance gain!

I have a 75 FJ40 with a fuel injected 355 HP SBC (ZZ4) w/700R4 and Toyota TC. I have a four core Be Cool radiator and fan clutch. The TC has the propeller mount. The rig was dyno'ed at 5300' w/215 HP (261 ft #s torque) at the wheels at 4500 RPM. The propeller mount is horrible! I really need to swap it for something that works.

The 700R4 is overdriven so highway cruising is not a problem. The rig does get a little warm at extended highway speeds (>75 for >1 hour). I am sure that an electric fan would help.

Doing a SBC in a '40 is a complicated and expensive endeavor. If this is what you want I suggest you buy one that is already done and save yourself a lot of time and money.

BTW-running a rebuilt stock F is a great option.

A nice simple rubber mount off the 700r4 with a boltable, removable, mount to the frame sides is just what you need. With the auto, bolting a mount off of the factory T case, strains the alum. cases.

I have been thinking of giving you a call for a while. The adapter between the 700R4 and the TC would make a great mount location and the adapter just happens to be the same length as a Marlin Toy Box...

Nice...I like your way of thinking The toybox, split case combo is very strong and has a great gear selection! You would love the ability to be able to have different gear combos for, snow, mud, and rocks! Give me a shout if you have any ?'s with your mount or possoble new set up!!
