Crazy awesome idea.

So I'm probably about to pull the trigger on a prerunner double cab 4 cyl auto. I love the truck but I just don't like how slow the auto tranny makes it. Was wondering if I could somehow have a 2wd 5 speed double cab pre runner custom made by Toyota or what? Or if dropping a base 2wd 2.7 engine/tranny/ecu in would work? Any input on how or if that would fit with minimal customization or what? Just curious.

This runs along the same lines as a V6 double cab long bed 6 speed... Toyota could, but won't

doable on a credit union site. Often available variables aren't shown on the official Toyota website. Last year they still had reg cab prerunners iirc.

edit: sorry my bad , I see u meant a 5 speed manual

Call several dealers and ask. Ive had some dealers tell me a truck I wanted couldn't be got and a salesman from another dealer admitted it could be special ordered and would take quite a while to get in. So maybe just because it cant be built on the toyota website doesn't mean its not possible
