2rz & 3Rz engine differences

I have a 96 Tacoma 4wd w/ 3RZ 2.7 bad engine, Will a 2.4 2RZ engine work as a replacement. Can't find many decent used 2.7's, amny more 2.4's available. What are issues??

The 3RZ has one more inch of compression. There shouldn't be an issue.

Thread revival.
Did you ever find out if a 2.4 would work in your tacoma. I am in a similar situation. I can find LOTS of 2.4 engines but no reasonably priced 2.7 engines.
