AoA , Brothers soon to be entering your world of 4x4 mean machines , but need help in getting there , the vehicle i have finaly shortlisted is a 1986 lc bj74 (MWB) , the suv's body is in good nick but the gear box is on its way out , due to either its a LC gear box mated with 1uz-fe vvti , or a 1-uz fe vvti gear box( probs out of a crown) and mated with this jeep . either way its gone , i would love to keep the engine and get the gear box either replaced or fixed any ideas of cost involved ? (Ideal would like a 5 speed auto or manual) .
2ndly are their any good mechanics available in Isb & pindi area for such task ? as the vehicle might need some restoration of suspensions.
please help me out here as 1st entry in such kind of vehicles . (the vehicle is costing 900k already) .
