WOW!!! Always loved old Toyotas, and Unimog running gear would just be too cool for crawling around places like Moab. TOO F'n COOL!!!!!

This is NOT on a Mog chassis. It's an FJ on Mog axles. It's also for sale on bringatrailer

Post build thread (he bought it already built and then did his own mods):

http://forum.ih8mud.com/40-55-series...d-45-saga.html

It is interesting and tempting, but the diesel is a GM 6.5 (I think - I haven't got through the thread yet) and the trans is automatic. The GM diesel might be okay, but I would prefer the MB OM617 5 cyl 3 liter. The transmission - eh, never catch me going into the backwoods with an automatic in a truck (says the guy with the Rekluse in his Husaberg).

I am about to put that OM617 in my 89 S10, but am backing it with a 700r4. They work well together.

I know I'm probably wrong but the stance of that says 2wd to me. I'm not much for lift kits but that is one low 4wd.
