    Are you talking about OEM replacement crate motors? If so I think I heard or read somewhere that brand new Toyota Tacoma crate motors run about $7,000. That's about all I know.

    Bobbed Left front ~ Ok not really but I bought it crashed from the kids dad 4-CHEAP. Frame Swap and 04 Clip + 6" lift ~ Woo Hoo!!!
    The motors out last the trucks. I'd bet the crate motor market is slim on these ~ High price and very limited market. Good used enignes are plentiful and reasonably priced ~ nation wide.
