Title says it all.
I just bought this rig. Had convinced the wife to let me buy an imported RHD diesel Mitsubishi Pajero. Then this popped up.
The guy I bought it from had the job done at a diesel shop a couple towns over. And had $15k in receipts for the work. I am impressed after looking it all over.

It is in need of a new transmission though. I have 1st. And if I can coast up to 50 it'll go into 3rd. So I've got a new heavy duty trans ordered.

The PO said he got 20 around town and 23-25 on the highway.

Came with another set of adapters(bellhousing and flywheel, though this set requires using the stock flywheel and the Chevy flywheel)

Really wish I didn't have to wait for the new trans...

The body and interior are super straight. I'm pretty stoked.

I would run a manual trans with that for sure. Grab a pedal from similar year pickup.

Well, it's been a slower project than hoped... I have the 4l60 out. I was actually just getting ready to head to the shop to finish changing the wiring for the new computer controller unit for the 4l80 I have waiting. Finally have some time to myself to do it.
