Engage Off Road swapped our 4.0L V6 in their Snowplow Race truck, which was pre-1st gen. The truck started out with a 22re, then the 3.4L, now it has the 1GR. Anything is possible

maybe, but I know their 5VZ was swapped for their original 22re, which only came on trucks before 1995, and 1995 and older trucks are pre-1st gen.

yea it could be done, seems like a waste though to me. Why not swap a GM ls motor, its gonna be cheaper and make a lot more power. Just my 2cents... a 6.0l from a 2500 would make your tacoma MOVE, do some mild h/c work, boom 400rwhp. Good luck getting that out of the 4.0, if you did it wouldnt run near as good as the LS motor...
