    Default Me & my jeeps (For brother Saidhi & others)

    Dear all, In another topic for the sale of RKR, i was asked by Mr Saidhi to define my two jeeps especially the upgrading of my cruiser. So, i would take it as an opportunity to also share my limited experience about jeeps and also to introduce my self.


    By profession, i am an army officer who was born in a military family, means have been knowing jeeps since i was too young. I am located at Islamabad and am basically from Peshawar. I am 34.


    For the last 18 years i have been keeping different brands including villys 45, range rover 84, 3Xdoor pajero 92, 5Xdoor pajero 92, double cabin 90, 3Xdoor land cruiser 87, about 7 suzuki jeeps (experienced SJ410, SJ 413, 660cc, 1000cc, long wheel base, 2C engine, 1300cc non EFI and EFI as well).


    I sold my last BJ 60 on 13th of august. This jeep was 84 model on which an additional amount of around 3.5 lacs was spent for its up gradation.


    After that i purchased three jeeps in the last month, two out of which have been sold and finally i started working on the 60 series.


    The first one out of those three was an 88 model SJ 410, the body of this one was swapped by a 94 model jimny, 1300 EFI, automatic, 11:43 diffs, had no works to be done.


    The second one was an original 94 model SJ 413, long wheel base, 1300cc, 5 Fwd manual gear, with removable company fitted fiber top, 11:43 high speed diffs, imported from UK in 2006, the registration no was also 413, had no works to be done. This jeep was excellent for off the road moves as the wheel base was long so was very comfortable as compared to the smaller one. I have heard that last year the cholistan desert rally was won by a LWB.


    And now i have an 89 model, UN auctioned, BJ 60, 5 Fwd gear, new 3B engine, rotary pump, islamabad registered jeep which is totally disassembled at the moment. When i was selling my LWB, i gave an add for this one as well on one of the forums of pak wheels, but the other one was sold so i decided to keep it. It was in total original condition but i opened each and every part. Working on it for the last one and half month and will surely complete it in 30 to 40 days. You can see the pics of it in the topic of its selling.


    Works already done are


    Front suspension changed, all four wheel bearings, disc plates, brake shoes, leaf springs changed, dash board removed, cooling boxes removed, cleaned and re fixed, carpet/ seats and roof cloth removed, denting done and painting in progress, tyres and rims have been changed yesterday.


    Works planned to be done


    Engine will be replaced by 13BT, rear stapni be placed as of a surf, mechanical wench is already there and all the items being removed will be re fixed in a clean way. And may be other hidden things also come in the way which will be corrected.


    If any further information is required i shall be happy to share the little of the little that i have.


    Regards


    Noman

    Noman AOA. This is very interesting thread. I am really looking forward to your engine swap and other work. I am really surprised that 13BT was quoted for Rs180,000 (assuming without gear box). I didn't know it can cost you that much.


    Last year I restored this FJ40 1982, original 2F but replaced with Landcruiser 4fwd gear box. Although I don't have any problem with 2F, but would love to swap it with 13BT with 5 forward. So I would love to get feedback if someone who has recently swapped with 13BT. I guess I just like the noise the diesel engine!











    regards,


    Imran Siddique

    @ Imran, The price of a 5 fwd gear box is around 28 to 30,000. I would recommend that u go for 1KZ. That will be a classic combination with the same gear and doesn't require much alterations. In any case you will have to go for minor wiring change as you going from petrol to diesel. And you can get a good 1KZ engine in around 80 to 85,000 with computer and its original wiring. I believe with the weight of your jeep it will be a monster.

    @Mods could you please remove ammar_r comments above in this thread. Such abusive and obnoxious writing doesn’t belong here, nor welcomed. We are very much aware of Jeep is a brand, but in Pakistan if folks tend to write Jeep for all SUV’s, such context is acceptable, although not technically correct.

    But then how would we know you are probably on “Public Assistance” in Canada, well my friend from your writing style.

    Now getting back to Noman’s suggestion:
    Noman, thanks for your suggestion. I am also inclined to 1KZ with 5 forward. But I was told to expect large modifications like tubes, Axles etc, also gear box. I do hope someday I will have time and courage to take up this project.

    Regards,
    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Infact, i have had two visits to peshawar for the same engine issue. You have a petrol engine and want to put a diesel one, right? What ever modifications you do, they'll be the same for a 13BT and for a 1KZ. A 1KZ will come on the same engine foundations as of a 13BT. The only thing you would require would be a couple of plates placed between the existing brackets of foundations, no cut and weld. And i believe the original gear box of a 1KZ would be cheaper than that of a 13BT because these 3Bs and 13BT's are also coaster engines and demand is very high and supply is low so higher prices. Where as in every second shop there were 1KZ engines available, so i would recommend a complete engine and gear swap with 1KZ.
    As far as the tubes/ axils are concerned, they are the same ratio as of diesel engines.
