I thought it was pretty interesting. I loved my 87' Toyota Pick-up. That thing took a beating and kept on running.

I wonder if the diesel is the same?

Slap a veggie oil conversion kit in that thing and you're off.

Sweet.

By "heavy duty" I am sure they mean 1/2 ton.

Benefits of living in the boonies.

My dad paid for half of his work truck in the tax savings in the couple years he had it by running only farm diesel through it

I've heard it's supposed to be a 3/4 ton. There was talk that they would be using the navistar 6-cylinder that Ford passed on, but that was a while back.

The IRC and several other NGOs used these in the Balkans when I was there - think 1980's boxy Landcruiser with diesel and river fording kit/snorkel. Cat's ass!
