Yeah I have thought about sc, but don't think I will ever do that. For the cost I think I would benefit from the 4wd more

The reason you see most of the parts I used out of pre 01 trucks, is because I went with manual hubs (which only came on 95-00 tacos) and because most of the junkyards in my area rarely get tacomas, and when they do, the tacos are usually older.

4x4 LT, eh?
Ok so my question which I'm hopping som can answer is.... if I have an 02 & the donor truck is an 01 ....everything should just be drop and rebolt on ... right...?????

Yes. If the engines and transmissions are the same, it should all bolt up. You also have to look at whether or not both trucks have ABS, and wheelbase for the correct rear driveshaft. (Double cabs and ext cabs are the same, but reg cabs are different.)

It may be a little different since they are older, but at least on the newer automatic Toyota transmissions (not just Tacomas) the E is the 2wd tranny and the F is the 4wd tranny. ie A750E and A750F. They are identical trannies except for one thing. The A750E is setup to connect a driveshaft to the rear of it. The A750F is setup to connect a Tcase to the rear of it.

I just checked out wikipedia and interestingly enough all of the 4wd vehicles that use the A340 tranny use the F version except the Tacoma. All of 2wd versions of those vehicles (4runner, Tundra, T-100, pickup) use the E version and it says the 4wd Tacoma uses the E version as well. I wonder how that works. haha

Yeah, it says the 4wd 4runner uses the A340F. Says the 4wd Taco uses the A340E, although I wouldn't be surprised if that is wrong. haha Plus this is enough proof for me to say play it safe and get the A340F.

You may be right... I always thought my 4x4 transmission was an A340E like my PreRunner trans because the ID tag on the side says "30-40LE." I'm now thinking this is actually the AISIN code and is the same on A340E and A340Fs, whereas the Toyota code is the A340E or F (E being the 2wd version and F being the 4wd version.) After all, the only differences between the two transmissions is the tail housing, the output shaft and the location of the speedo sensor. And the 03/04 versions have the fly-by-wire speedo sensors...

I think the grimmjeeper gear calculator threw me off since it lists the A340Es as used in 98-01 tacomas and the A340Fs as used in 02-present....... (lol) Pretty sure that's incorrect I wish I had a copy of the FSM to see if I can get more clarification on this.

Nice, man. All you need is manual hubs? Did the donor truck have manual hubs? Just a heads up, but if the donor truck does not have manual hubs, you will also have to source some different spindles, and CV axles. And you won't need the electric/vacuum solenoids for the ADD (auto differential disconnect) actuator.

EDIT: Just remembered your donor truck is an 01, so that means it definitely doesn't have manual hubs. If you want them you will need to find some spindles that came off a 95.5-00 Tacoma that had manual hubs (these spindles have 6 extra little studs to mount the manual hub body) and some CV axles meant for manual hubs (the outer stub shaft is different than the ADD version--splined all the way vs. threaded end). Ideally, you want to find a diff half tube without an ADD actuator as well (since it's not needed and just more little parts to deal with) but the ADD half tube off the donor truck will work with a simple hose clamp conversion to lock the actuator shifting fork in 'lock' position.

That's the plan!! Maybe even find a taco with a blown engine for a few hundred bucks, and do an ls conversion at the same time.

Yeah price is too high, will be lowering within the week.. I was mostly just trying to gauge interest. So far, only got one offer for a trade. Can you guys see me driving around a blue 2003 Infiniti g35 with chrome wheels? Twas a sweet car, but not for me...
