    Might be cheaper and better to get a low mileage truck motor from a wrecked truck with a 5.3. They are almost the same and you would have about 1-1500 in it. The truck motor intakes make more low end tq too.

    I would put the 20k into a well built front to rear cage, race seats, race radio, fuel cell, and suspension. Honestly your truck will rip and be safe with all of that. You will still probably run out of suspension before you run out of motor.

    Total Chaos reg cab race truck runs a 4.0 and is linked. Unless your going to link it a motor swap is probably a waste of time or you just have the cash to throw around.

    If you do a motor swap I suggest the Toyota 4.0.

    Just my unsolicited 2 cents:)

    I don't daily drive one but I have a 4cyl reg can on 33s with LT. Your also on stock gears with 35s hence why you run out of motor real quick.

    Agreed. Mine was a dog with 245s lol. It doesn't bother me though. If i want speed I'll get another sports car.

    No,

    Tip #1, is to not drive like Kase.

    Tip #2, get a second job, dump any baggage and build a bad ass truck!

    Haha.

    It's funny everyone always talks about the double cabs and how cool they are and look. But when you really get down to it with them 99.9999% of the time they always say man I wish I could have a single cab I just need the room.


    Single cabs... We just rock. :)

    I posted these somewhere else. Did not know there was a dedicated Reg Cab thread. Picked this up a week ago. My wife loves it. She has drove it to work 3 times!

    Tis my 3rd Reg Cab Toyota. Had a 95 then a 2003 which I traded in on this one. Dealer gave me $5100 for my 03 which was a two wheel drive and had a rusted out frame.
    Once I got home, I checked the tire inflation. Dealer had 28# in all 4. Pumped em up to 34#.
    The AM radio sucks donkey balls. I think I may have to take it back see if something wrong. FM works fine so,,,,,

    Nice. I have the same truck.:cheers: What do mean the AM radio sucks? I think it's pretty nice to have a touchscreen, bluetooth on a base model. The sound sucks though.

    No reception. Can't get a single AM station. Yet can get about a dozen FM.
    Missing my fav AM sports talk station.

    Been a member here at TW for a while, but just found this thread. Nice to have one dedicated to the regular cab crew. Sub'd! Btw, I've got a 99 2.7 RC still going strong at 190k.

    I picked up a canopy the other day off craigslist. I was a little on the fence at first, but it's growing on me. The cap is an ARE from 2009 that used to be white, but the previous owner had it Line-X'ed. I was pleasantly surprised with how well it matches.. Got a deal I think, too!
