    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.....

    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..
