The swap is written up here: FZJ80 Swap
Yeah we went through 3 jerry cans and that didn't even matter because we would have needed at least 6 to make it through to the halfway point. I was on my KTM so I was getting great mileage (only filled up twice) but the DI was getting around 8mpg or less.

I will tell you what... it is near impossible to get a truck on that thing that has a blown transmission. Took us about 7 tries with a 10,000 winch and 2 snatch blocks! We finally got it up there and just drank beers by the fire after
