Your going to be the only Patrol all the time. Looks like it had no problem climbing that dune.

Awesome! I’ve considered 350 instead of rebuilding mine. Just a battle of what direction to go.

If you go with the 350 it fits perfect. No hacking up the fire walls. I also went with 400r tranny for the overdrive and it cruises down the highway @ 75 no problems plus parts are much cheaper. One other thing I did was put Jeep axles under YJ axles under it so I could just shift into 4wd from inside no lockouts. They are only about 3/4 wider so they look normal and again they are cheap and available. I have tons of pictures if you need anymore information.

Hi chester3,
Great looking - and sounding - Patrol, thanks for sharing!
If you don't mind me asking, what transfer case are you using and how does it mate up mechanically with the GM auto ? I've always wondered about that aspect of any engine/trans swap...
Also, what carb are you running please?
Cheers,
D

TC needed an adapter plate but bolted up very easy.

Thanks chester3, much appreciated...

The carb looked like a Holley 2bbl, but thanks for confirming that, and the transfer case info too.

Looks fun to drive !

Cheers,
D
