    FAQ


    What do I need to swap to a 5 speed transmission?
    R150 or R150F (4x4), Clutch, Clutch Cover, Flywheel, Transmission or T-case mount, Slave Cyl, Master Cyl, Clutch Lines, Shift Boot, Shift Cover and a few other little bolts and nuts.Source


    Would a 4x4 Single Cab front portion of the rear drive shaft work for my Double Cab or Extra Cab? No Single Cabs drive shaft is shorter then a Double Cab or Extra Cab. Source


    Can I use parts from a 4-Runner? For a Tacoma you can use 4-runner parts from a 3rd Gen 1996–2002. Source

    If I do a Auto to Manual swap will I throw a CEL? Yes unless you swap out the ECU for a 5 Speed 4x4 Manual. Source

    Can I reuse my Pre-runner Transmission for the swap? You have 2 options you can choose from. One is to swap out the 2wd output shaft for a 4x4 output shaft. Two run the Inchworm Prerunner Adapter Plate with a Gear Driven T-case or a Lefty Adapter with a Lefty T-Case. (NO Stock T-Case w/ Adapter)
    Sources: Output Swap Prerunner Adapter Plate

    Can I use my Prerunner Vehicle Speed Sensor? No, They are different. Source

    Can I use my Prerunner Rear Drive shaft? Yes but the front portion after the Center Carrier Bearing must be shortened 12" Inches. Source

    If I use Manual Hubs will I keep my ABS? Only way to keep ABS on manual hubs is to press the Manual hubs into your ABS spindles. Source

    Will a T-Case from a Manual transmission bolt to an Automatic transmission? According to ShowStop "input shafts are different lengths between auto and manual" Source 1 Source 2 *Update According to js_iron "They are the exact same output shaft length and they both will bolt right up to the A340F" Source


    Can I use a 2.7 T-Case for my 3.4 Transmission.

    Can I use ADD CV's with my Manual Hubs? No, the ends are different.Source

    How do I wire up my clutch cancel button? "If you want the clutch start safety feature with over ride switch, best to cut it out of the wrecked truck harness and piggy back onto your DC harness." - mattm94 Source Post #18

    I love the grease on the spring. I did the same thing on both the 95.5 and 98 I had previously to shut them up. Kudos for taking this on. I know a lot of people are scared of this kind of stuff and advise others to just buy another truck. If my auto tranny in my 96 starts to give me issues I'll be swapping a 5 speed into it. But mine's already 4WD so I won't have quite an extensive parts list.

    Now this is how you make a walkthrough. While I will never have to do this swap, thank you for taking the time to detail it.

    And I agree with mbassman. Ditch that torsion spring in the clutch pedal and go with a brake return spring.

    I doubt your DC has the welded tab behind the dash to hook it on to, but it seems like you might be somewhat mechanically inclined to figure something out :laughing:

    You'd be surprise what double cabs have. They have the mounts for the clutch hydro lines and some mounting hole for the clutch peddle. I'm sure its down there.

    Wouldn't make sense for them to change the cab.. Especially since Toyotas all about flow in the factory. Having 2-3+ lines for different cab configurations. IE ( Manual/Auto ) would slow them down especially if its just a different mounting bracket. This is the Toyota Production System (TPS) at work.. "Producing high-quality vehicles as efficiently as possible".. or so they say.
