Let's make the ultimate SHTF Hilux

Theoretically, would it be possible to make a Toyota Hilux with a 2 stroke diesel engine? I'm thinking for a SHTF scenario where you would need a tank of a car with an engine that's simple to repair and would run on biodiesel or even vegetable oil if needed. Are there any engines that would have the appropriate size and power?

          Yea but would an airplane engine realistically fit in a Hilux?

            The Jumo should fit within the width of an average Hilux engine bay, the height is a non-issue anyway....now ok, it's a little long, but it's nothing a little cutting&welding couldn't fix.
            At worst you could definitely fit it in the bed.
            You could even add some Bandvagn-type powered trailer.

            If a fockin' Merlin can fit a Rover than a Jumo should absolutely fit a Hilux.

    >2 stroke diesel engine
    doesn't seem to be much advantage to doing this, the toyota diesels will already run forever anyway, and the loss of fuel efficiency and oil burning seem like big negatives in shtf when resources are limited. assuming it's an older mechanically injected diesel it will run on bio or SVO without problems, you'll just have to clean the injectors more often

    But such a vehicle already exists OP.

    In all practicality it'd probably be easier to just scavenge a replacement engine or parts for a common 4-stroke than to do engine repairs on a rare 2-stroke at the side of the road in such a situation.

      Thanks for your input. I'm obviously a car noob just trying to learn.

        Nah man, fantasising about sick future builds is cool. I like Hiluxes too, check this shit out https://youtu.be/6k7yBqxNzzY?si=WXAlPG9cjrq3pwuw

    I love your post anon, not sure why I am so excited of near future mad max scenarios though. But self reflecting, my new favorite car is an old diesel merc just cause it can run on fricking sunflower oil

      Thanks! Glad you liked it. It's my first post here so I wasn't sure how people would respond. I also find the thought of having the option of running my car on vegetable oil intriguing, surely it doesn't hurt to have multiple fuel options in these unstable times.

      where the frick are you driving in an apocalypse scenario where you're likely already dead

      get a fricking mountain bike and hit the gym, you'll be walking anyways

      SHTF doesn't necessarily mean a nuke or civil war, moron.

    A Detroit Diesel is what you need. Doubt the b***h ass suspension in that pathetic truck would handle it tho.

    I’m sure you might be able to shoe horn something small like a Detroit 4-53, but you’d be much better off working with a factory Toyota diesel of that era. The 4-53 weighs about the same as a 12 valve Cummins all the while being less efficient, noisier, less powerful and slightly more difficult to source parts for. Also good old timer Detroit mechanics are a dying breed. Maybe get one of those ancient Mercedes diesel engines if you want to scratch the swap itch.

      There used to be a lightweight 3-53 used in some military vehicles that would also be suitable.
      It shares the same "advantages" you've already mentioned, while being nigh upon unobtanium short of scrapping a Gamma-Goat.
