    coaster engine is B3 3450cc or 3400 cc and it came in old Land cruisers as well
    Everything is Gear driven, minimum belts, lot of noise extremely reliable and durable.

    Not very suitable for high speeds and pickup but it can go on and on and on..........

    i used it in 1985 land cruiser for 2 years, it had a 4 speed gear box and was damn noisy but rock solid and capable of extreme Offroading in a good setup

    @Toyopat,

    It will be a good idea to have Wrangler on CJ-7 Chassis, It’s not very much hard to find one. Which City R U from?

    In Karachi, Lahore and Rawalpindi, it’s not difficult to find one. U can look in the classifieds and can also visit the local Jeep workshops.

    In case ur friend is only going to for Wrangler on CJ-5 chassis then the chassis is going to be modified as Wrangler body fits on a wider & longer chassis.

    Engine Selection on CJ-5 Chassis Wrangler:
    2L OR 3L:
    These engines provide sufficient power & Torque to propel CJ-5 (Wrangler Body) or Willys MB & M38 Jeeps.

    2L-T:
    This engine is a good balance of economy and power.
    Being Turbo Charged, they have more power.

    2L-TE: EFI version of the 2L-T engine. It has a larger head as compared to the non-Efi versions.

    Engine Selection on CJ-7 Chassis:
    3B or 13B-T Engines:
    3B’s rated power is 90hp@3500rpm
    13B-T it’s rated power is 120hp@3400rpm. It is turbocharged as compare to 3B
    & it produces a great power, which the Jeep owner is going to Love.

    1KZ-TE:
    The 1KZ-TE is Toyota’s turbocharged replacement for the 3L. This 3.0 liter engine is a new design from the ground up. It boasts high tech features such as electronically controlled fuel injection and engine and emissions management systems. The result is outstanding performance from a lightweight engine, but for a pretty heavy price.

    Chassis & Body:
    CJ-7 Chassis is 10” long and bit wider as compare to CJ-5. U can find CJ-7 original body which, with some modifications on the fenders, hood & grill can be given a wrangler shape. Or in the local market the Jeeps workshops are using locally built body tub for wrangler shape it’s an alternate to replace if original CJ-7 body is not available.

    But in case no CJ-7 chassis available then CJ-5 chassis can be used for wrangler shape AFTER some modification.

    Transmission Selection:
    Wrangler Shape on CJ-5 chassis:
    Toyota Parado/Surf OR Rocky’s 5 speed manual Transmission works well.

    Suspension:
    For Wrangler shape on CJ-5 Chassis:
    Rocky’s Front and Rear Axels are completely reliable and great in performance.

    For CJ-7/Wrangler:
    Rocky’s Suspension/Axels are good but if you use Parado’s Suspension that’s great.

    Jeep Project Cost:
    It always depends on your choice of parts. And mostly on Engine, Transmission and Suspension. If u want to go for a project of nicely restored CJ-7 wrangler shape or CJ-5 wrangler shape it will cost U in between 400,000/- Rs. to 600,000/- Rs.
    It would "go places where tankers quit and birds would go back exhausted." *****Willys MB*****
