    Looking to buy Toyota Tacoma or Jeep or similar SUV with TDI swapped into it.

    Live in West Michigan and I'm willing to travel a fair distance for the right vehicle. Please message me if you are aware of any for sale. Love the TDI engines, ideally want a small truck and don't have the time to do a swap myself. Thanks.
