1991 HZJ73

Hey guys new on this forum but not new to the world of 70 series,bought my first 1989 LJ73 in 1994 when I was living in Belgium.Almost every model and variant of the 70 series have been in my possession at one point in time with my 2 favorite models being the KZJ73 and the HZJ73.KZJ is not old enough to import so I have a few HZJ73's around now in Texas.

My 1991 HZJ73 is a lhd with ac which is very hard to find in Europe,it belonged to a friend of mine over there for almost 20 years and I have it now about 2 years.

Welcome! :D
 
I’m new here on this site , I’ve had a few cruisers over the last 6 years . I’m no expert by any stretch on the imagination. I was lucky enough to be a at the right place at the right time to land this cruiser. I had zero To do with its original build ...I just added a few things after I purchased it . It runs and drives amazing with the swap.
I own a RJ70 also and I like it too . It’s great for its purpose of Daily driving in El Salvador, But not for US highways, there is no way I’d want it here because they struggle after 55mph with a 4 speed and 22r.

The build thread on the BJ73 is over on ih8mud if anyone want to read it. The basics are listed below.

Year- 1985
Model- BJ73
Make- Toyota
Engine -Chevy LS3
Trans -GM 6L80E
Nation sold new - Spain
Resto mod work performed by -Torfab Everett WA
Diffs -Harrop E lockers with nitro gears sets
TC - 80 series
Lift - trail tamer springs and shocks
Etc etc etc ...the list is loooong .

The roof rack is a Front Runner from South Africa. I was at a loss as to what to do for it , since it has a FRP top. I searched the web and found zero I liked . Then Jeff at Rugged Overland Outfitters recomended the system and brand.

Since the rack is a modular system it can have the foot mounts located wherever you need them . There is no rain gutter on the rear side windows , but the BJ73 has them above the rear doors. They are actually very strong and made of metal that is embedded into the glass. I wouldn’t be afraid to put a RTT on it if need be.

The build thread, it’s not very detailed unfortunately. It was mainly a thread to show how much went into creating what it is today . There where several things changed along the way and a couple since the thread was last updatesd. One big change is it now has a GM 6l80e in it instead of a manual .
