    Anything can be done with the right amount of money. Personally, I'd love to do it. I did see a discussion on one of the Flog book pages a while ago about it. Didn't bother to follow it though as they lost me at the comment just send it bro.

    Yep !!! ^^^^^^^^^ As Avo said. And a LOT less headaches. On the surface conversions look simple - but you nearly always have some problems. Sometimes simple and annoying - other times expensive and heartbreaking.

    The are so cheap for what you get. Considering a Ford Everest is around the same price.

    New Y62s can be had for high 60s, mid 60s if you look/haggle enough... They're definitely a lot of evident on the road in recent times.
    The motor/power and comfort is what you're paying for.
    That motor in a GU would be the absolute ultimate. Best off road suspension/drive train ever, with the the power house of a engine.
