It's not a quiet ride but not terribly loud. Guess I don't know anything otherwise. Hell it's gonna be weird having a extra gear and a floor shifter.

I saw your post on MUD and it looks like you have an 4 speed from an FJ40. Let's find some time to look over all the other parts to see if there are any other "gotchas" and then get on with scheduling a weekend for the swap.

You should probably read this thread too - I know Zepp had to scavenge some parts off of his '76 while in the middle of his conversion, stuff he didn't think of.
