    Got a call from the mechanic and the 4.7 is good. Hold compression and all. Still going to rebuild it just so it will be like new. Rear axle on the other hand is bad broken teeth on the pinon and ring gear. Probably from the shock of the roll over. But it's ok, it had the wrong gear ratio anyway.

    The SKU# are different. One set is for 95-00 and the other is for 01-04. The SKU# for the 01-04 is 5007872 and the one for 95-00 is SKU # 5008022.

    I’m not sure if the tail light wiring is the same. In those years. If some can verify if wiring is the same in those models I don't see why you can't get the cheaper ones to save a few bucks.

    The whole reason why I got the tail lights was because I was trying to figure out my wiring problem I had.

    I don’t know if you saw my post about a tacoma width rear end with 8.4 tundra diff. They come on 1st gen DC auto 2.7 motor. Those rear ends will do for the V8. But I still think the 8” will be fine. Just don’t drive like an ass clown.

    Use a multimeter and check that wire to ground for continuity.

    Nothing to get excited about
    You'd think finding the actual weight wouldn't be that difficult. It seems that question is asked often. According to Expeditions West, it weighs 78 lbs without a winch.

    I bought it knowing it ran though, haha. It jus started to crap out on me after we drove it off the trailer.

    I plan on restoring it. Going to strip the whole truck down and repaint it and give it some much needed body work.

    That is of course if I can get a title for it from the DMV.

    The mood at the DMV here is like going into a building that just kills puppies all day. They even play that depressing elevator music.

    I can't believe the paint on a truck that went almost 500,000 miles is somehow better than my truck with 92,000 miles.

    You must have got the "Re-Entry Package" option when new.

    ALL OF THEM!...Then some more.
    As awesome as that would be. It would also be very very expensive haha 2jz parts are ridiculous

    Be better off replacing the ecu and turbo in the 5VZ.

    Also if cali won't let you mix and match truck engines with cars or whatever...the 2jz is a car engine. So you couldn't do that? Might as well do a truck 5.3l LS in it. Be cheapest option all around for a tire shredder. Have to get a beefier rear axle no matter what.

    Light/dark colors make an amazing difference in heat and sun absorption. Why a lot of the overland vehicles paint the roofs white...
