I may be off the deep end, but I think the plan is to put my 2LT drivetrain into a 90-95 4runner. The twist is that its' gonna be a straight axle swap too. I found out that the 4runner is based on a regular cab short bed frame. I found a deal on a 85 4x4 22r straight axle truck with a trashed body last week. The frame and axles are good plus it's already got a nice 4 inch lift done right with a drop pitman arm, etc. Spring packs up front with blocks in the rear. I already stripped this truck down to the frame this past weekend. I am now seriously hunting a 2nd generation runner to bolt to this frame. The location of the frame mounts in the rear of the truck frame will have to be relocated to match the runner body mounts. I've already removed them. The front 6 mounts should be the same from truck to runner from what I have researched. The 4unner gas tank and mounts may have to be used since they are lower for the body tub. The horeshoe crossmember on the frame will have to be lowered a few inches. Now the hunt is on for a CLEAN CHEAP V-6 runner that has a dead engine. Here is a pic. of the straight axle frame and the engine donor truck behind it. Comments are welcome!
