    Im sure this has been touched on somewhere here but I have a DIY remedy for a bed mat if you are cheap like me and have a local Tractor Supply or similar store. I purchased 6 ft of 1/4" horse stall mat and cut it to length.. cost about $30 to make it and just as effective. it is 4 ft wide so it doesn't cover the entire bed but close enough. and no I dont have pictures. you can use your imagination though!

    Hi all new hear and grateful to find some support and if possible add to the growing data base of info.
    Current issue, how it all started (my buddy talked me into this swap but is so busy now, and I need my rig back, so I'm struggling to find answers)
    1 Im doing a swap, into my 88, with the 2rz.
    what I have so far, rebuilt (not done with re-assembly, have questions about setting timing, have manual but need confirmation on all, as we all know 1 wrong setting will make a mess) 2rz, with a 2000 head ( old head was cracked) ecu and wire harness out of a 2000, bellhousing to mate the engine and tranny.
    Still need a starter, pressure plate, and some solid info on the oil pan issue, which is the best for performance vers investment as I'm getting many different suggestions and application ideas that now I'm lost, opinions very a lot, back ground on set up.
    This 2.4 is going into a 88 4x4 long bed, I guess my old oil pan won't work because of my front steering components and or the straight axle on the 88?
    Other unpleasant surprises, my buddy said this swap was easy, I asked any questions, he just said no problem, yada yada, anyway now I found out my motor mounts in fact won't line up with the 2rz's (as he said they would) i'm like 2 1/2 inches off, (forward) not found of cutting off mounts, e.t.c also guess I can use my ole crank pulley, which means now my power steering and alt pulleys need modded? Or is there a configuration that will marry the 2 i.e. serp belt that can run a V pulley, e.t.c. or a crank pulley swap that will still run oil pump but has the V belt set up?
    Also need a tutorial on this swap, I'll keep browsing but a few links would be great.
    Of course any and all input will help me to get this 2rz into my 88 is appreciated.
    Thanks

    I need to see a diagram, or knowledgeable person out there to answer, for the inside clutch assembly from piston to pedal has a bolt that slides through the 2 sides. A cotter pin holds the piston/pedal together. Now comes my quandary and search to see if there is also a spring attached near the cotter pin to pull the pedal from the floor.

    It's a '95 SR5 manual 5 speed and the clutch pedal has no pressure or return, it just stays on floorboard. Ideas anyone?

    I think there's a couple of dead links. "Grille Swap" is one. This is an awesome thread though. I can't wait to see what I can do.

    What fuses or bulbs would I need replacing if once I turn on my lamps on for night driving and the ac unit configuration knobs do not turn on?

    Is it just the knobs or the whole AC lights and part of the speedometer lights? If it's isolated to just the knobs, then you have to replace the bulbs. There's a YouTube video showing on how to replace them. Just search it up and you should find it.
