Sorry forgot to mention it's a 4x4 regular cab with 4.88 gears also changed out the factory bench seat for 4door buckets and center console with automatic shifter assembly ( standard to auto swap)

    Would this be any easier than a v6 swap in a regular cab?

    Are you talking about a PnP kit?

    If more people are interested in the kit I can do something about making a kit as far as mounts and a wiring diagram. As for now I'm just enjoying the shit out of my truck and for anyone interested in MPG I get about 18-19 MPG gonna do one more full tank and double check

    Holy shit yes!!! Did you pass state inspections? Did you use a 4Runner as donor?
    I also have a 2010 but access cab and have been researching the same swap so I really hope you'll let me pick your brain. Where do you live?

    It can pass OBD checks but as far as the law where the motor has to be the same year or newer this swap won't fly.... lucky I live in paradise island GUAM. My motor is tundra with 4runner accessories (rear sump oil pans, radiator, intake and fan shroud).

    Lmk how many of you are interested I can get you a price on motor mounts and cross member
