a friend of mine wanted to do exactly the same thing as you in QLD and he was told by various people he couldn't get it engineered. so he did the HD-FTE conversion on his FZJ105 (n/a petrol to turbo diesel)
4WDing, it's not a Hobby, it's a Passion!!!

FZJ105; 2 inch lift, ST/maxx's, HID/led lights, draws, roof rack, sat nav/entertainment system, 2.5 inch Beaudesert exhaust with pacemaker extractors, green P plates, 3 year old behind the wheel :p

I'm no expert but I'd imagine an engine swap would be a whole lot simpler and cheaper than a solid axle conversion. Besides the electrics, a HD-FTE is a straight forward swap in a HZJ105. Most of the cost of the conversion comes from the price of the motor itself, they fetch a good dollar because they're so desirable!

To do a solid axle conversion on a 100, due to the wider chassis vs a 105, you'd have two options, 1. Wide diffs from a different vehicle, or 2. modify the chassis.
If you went option 1 you'd need to get diffs from a completely different vehicle, I don't know what solid axle fourbies had wide enough diffs to get around that IFS chassis, certainly won't get anything from another landcruiser. I'm sure someone on a forum somewhere has looked this up at some point. You'd then need to do a whole heap of bodywork to cover up the wheels give how much wider they'd be, plus I don't know how much of an engineering nightmare it would be to do a 100mm+ wheel track increase.
Option 2 is completely unknown to me. I don't know what the rules are on chassis modifications, what else is central of the chassis that would need to be modified etc. but basically there'd be a lot of cutting, bending and modifying that needs to be done to fit standard 105 diffs under.
Also don't forget that the starting price of a good condition HDJ100 is higher than that of a good condition HZJ105. You could buy a really nice low kms early 2000's HZJ105 for $25k, spend $20k on the conversion, new exhaust and a few other goodies. Or you could spend $35k on an equivalent condition HDJ100. Good luck getting either option 1 or 2 done for under $10k, just won't happen.

So I'm a new 100 series owner - picked up my 2002 HZJ105 GXL Advantage on tuesday and drove it 900km back from brisbane without dramas.

Did a full service on it just now - all fluids, filters and tightened wheel bearings. Will clean and repack all WBs and CVs next weekend. It's nice and stock (best starting point imo), but did come with a GME UHF and a set of new Toyo MTs!
