I checked these guys out...
I can't imagine spending 26 grand to convert my FJ to diesel.
Wow
:surprise
Diesel conversion is not for everyone. The fuel savings alone won't justify the expenditure. But having the power to outrun raptors and getting 40+ mpg and torque for days is very exciting.

The motors they are importing for this are not cheap! Hopefully someday Toyota will come out with a US based Diesel at which point this will become much cheaper.

Quick Heads up. Registration closes on Sept 1st or once we hit cap.
So 3 1/2 weeks left of XX number of trucks ( not sure on current count ).

Wanted to make that clear so we had time to provide for the shirt printing and food vendors to have meat ready!

They only claim 25mpg and 165hp 277 lb/ft Torque @ 2,200rpm, so they won't be out running anyone.

:wink

Now if we were talking 40 to 50 mpg and 300 HP, that would be something else entirely. I'd rather have a Supercharger for 1/5th the cost.

So our site designer is working on shirt orders
No update on the food yet as it is much harder to track.
Waiting to hear back from the food vendor about ordering a little extra
