    Looks very similar to the one I installed on my truck. The parts that I received were all either Toyota or Toyota suppliers and the same mfrs I removed. I think that you will be fine.

    I just installed that same kit on my Prerunner last weekend. Everything looked good and went on smoothly, only thing funny with my kit was the water pump was a genuine Asian pump but they had lightly ground off the toyota name that was cast into the pump for some reason.??? But other than that it was perfect with all OEM parts, would defiantly recommend it based on the price for what you get.

    Took me 5.5 hours, really taking my time on a friday night. The hardest part is getting the AC pump out of the way.

    Yeh if your used to wrenching on your truck should not be a problem to knock it out on a Saturday afternoon kinda thing. I had to flush my cooling system, wanted to get all the red clay out of my condenser, and painted my brackets and the front of my crank pulley black so it took a little more time than just a belt change should.

    Thank you all for the input. Ordered the kit today, waiting to get injectors back from cleaning (misfire issues), then it's wrenching time again.
