    Keith,

    You are a god among men...

    It was nice having dinner in Denver the other day too. The 110 is awesome.

    Of course you'll see it Moab! Otherwise you might not see me!!

    Scott, it was indeed fun sharing thoughts, ideas, food and drink with you while you were in town! I don't know abotu that God thing though.. I've been pushing it so much that I feel as if I've been run over by a bus!

    So, why did you decide on the TD5? I was thinking about putting one in my D2, seems it would be the simplest swap since factory parts should be available.

    But most people suggest the simpler TD200/300's would be better, even for my D2?

    Care to go into details on the process? Where'd you get the engine, what did you do with mechanicals and electricals?

    Wishful thinking and just plain ignorance

    Forget sending images, send me the D1 with the TD5 and I'll take photos for you! (and I'll take it for a test drive too to get some action shots)

    Keith,

    I'm sorry I doubted you when you said you'd have it done before the Moab Rally. You just didn't clarify which one.

    Seriously though, congrats on finishing it up. That's going to be a SWEET rig.
