    Check out my build thread. I regeared to 4.56 and went through 4wheelparts. Cost including a Detroit trutrac LSD was $2500. Pricey but they did an OK job. I run interstate at 75-80mph tach 3k rpm with 31s and get 20-21mpg. With my 33s I get @ 17 mpg. Power difference is substantial. I probably should have done 4.88 because I wheel a lot more than I thought I would and it would have given me more power at trail speed.

    What does everyone think about a 1st gen taco with a 3rd gen 4runner front end? I think it would look good but im not sure. Also, I like the taco fenders better than the 4runner fenders. Is it possible to keep the taco fenders with the 98-00 corner lights, and a 4runner grill, headlight, hood setup? If that makes sense

    4runners are nice! It's a shame you can't find one remotely close to here with a 5 speed and decent frame. They rust holes in them just like the tacos.

    I'm gonna try to not make the mistake I made with the tacoma and keep it simple. I've outgrown the extra cab and need more room and a real back seat. Probably gonna be something along the lines of this VVV

    Good luck with your new plans on the 4 runner! Hope your truck sells fast and someone who won tear it up gets it

    There's someone who did the swap here and posted pics.

    I thought it looked awkward.

    No offense to said poster.
