Nah just still running the engine fan Troy. Been a bit slack of late. As far as how it sounds, it's a bit different now to what it was in the vid because of the block huggers that's been put on since that video.

Heres my 77 shorty.
Bought it about a year ago stock as a rock. The bloke was in tears when i left he loved it so much. Its got a 2f on lpg.
Heres what i have done to it since i got it.

33' silverstone extremes. fitted at standard height but rubbed a bit.
60 series front disk conversion with bigger hilux callipers, bundera booster and 60 series master cyllinder.
2" dobbinsons front springs and home made extended shackles in the rear.
factory toyota P.T.O winch i scored off ebay for $460. Put 10mm dynamica rope on after i forgot to take winck out of gear and drove so it snapped the cable like it was butter.
Lockright autolockers front and rear.
Disk brake conversion on the rear. I made brackets from hilux knuckle housings, hilux rotors and 60 series 4 spot callipers. pulls up like a racecar now.

What i want to do to it.
Power steering
SOA if its legal
12HT engine. Cant seem to find any info on bolting a 12ht to the factory 4 speed.
maybe 55 springs in the rear.

Here are some pics
