    You have an A340F tranny....find one from a 4x4 if you can as the tail of the tranny is different, and Im not sure it can be swapped out.

    when a guy i know was going thru his prerunner-4x4 swap...he started out planning on using his prerunner tranny...but it was going to be a MAJOR PITA to change the tranny over to a 4wd version...

    find a 4x4 tranny and save yourself the headaches
