Rear Driveshaft Question
 
Doing the Prerunner to 4x4 swap and was wondering if a rear driveshaft from a 88 4runner would work ??

If not does anybody know the dimensions of the 4x4 driveshaft on an automatic 3.4 V6 :confused:

Only need a few more parts and ill be done :D:D

But your mention of an '88 4 runner reminds me that I've got a friend with a complete front end w/ IFS 4x for sale.....


guess i should add that its an '89

Nicee ha might be better for someone a little closer though, my buddies doing a SAS and giving me all of his ifs for 400, do you know if a 88 driveshaft will work for me ?

Not sure on the shaft thing, but are you aware that the front diffs & the shaft connecting to it are on opposite sides ?? I've got a 2000 TRD 4x & the front diff. is opposite of '80's early '90's 4 runners.

Ok, didn't notice your pre runner so I would think as long as the 4 runner trans. & transfercase bolts up to your 3.4 without too much BS it'd work ok..

im swapping the front off a 01 tacoma everything else came off 98 4runner i believe, they just had a rear drive shaft at a local junkyard off a 88
