you guys are right about that regearing .... i have it stock what ever 99 4runner comes with... i looked around for the 4.88 gear for toyota and its pretty cheap. no need to pay shop $1000 to get it installed... one question tho is there any vehicle that come's stock with it ? so i can just go around junk shops and pull it ( the whole axle ).. the v8 swap will still be happening tho not now.. gotta wait after deployment .. if no one can point me to the right way... eff it im just gonna buy one of those lexus engines and work it, what ever happens eff it ill make sure it works ... dont worry guys i will take alot of pics and make a tut thread. lol the electric supercharger and that sound changer is awesome funny

Some 2nd gen trucks came with 4.88 rears, you can use one of those thirds. You won't find factory 4.88s for your front diff though.

Just supercharge it!

I just installed a supercharger on my rig (02 Sport w/150k). The only problem I have going up to the mountains (from Denver) is keeping it below the 'gonna get a speeding ticket' limit. And that is loaded up with 2 bikes, gear, dog, etc. Jesse Myers at Affordable Toyota Lexus Repair (atlr.net) did the job for less than $3500 (brand new TRD Supercharger). Runs like a charm, no pinging, great power. And if I have to get rid of the 4Runner, I still have the standard intake so I can bolt it back on and keep the supercharger.

Gears. Gears. Gears.

I'd stick with the 3.4. If you're jonesin' for a v8, get a 4th gen or a Land Cruiser

I know someone is going to burn me for this BUT.... I have talked about this with a buddy before and I think it would be BA!

If you are going to go big then go BIG! The only thins is that you would have to do a live solid up front but I'm sure it can be done.

Oh...people here are so nice trying to give you good, cost-effective advice. I, on the other hand, want to sit back in my chair and read about (and SEE PICS) of your progress on a V8 swap. Seems like you have your mind made up, but in case you have any doubts, my advice is...supercharger/regearing will do NOTHING to give you extra oomph. V8 is the ONLY way!

As far as engine choice, I'd say go for the 4.7L that came factory in the 4th gens. You can prob find quite a few 4th gens at junkyards/auctions. V8 baby! Be the t4r.org hero!

I assume he's talking about the 2nd gen '90-'95 4Runner's.

When they came equipped with the 3VZE V6, auto trans, and 31x10.50R15 tires, they had 4.88 axle gearing.

If you really want a V8, I'd go with the 5.7. You can even get a TRD Supercharger for it. 500+ hp.

Of course there would be some fabrication involved.

Depending on if your a Toyota purist I'd say 1uz all the way but seems like you have other stuff to learn soldier..
Keep your head down and hurry up and wait.

99 limited still had elocker won't it? So bo you can't swap out the rear diff with something else. Unless you don't have a rear locker then yes 79-95 Toyota 3 members will swap. I would not look for factory 4.88 thirds because you can't change the gears if I remember or maybe it was locker options. I doubt the clam shells between 86+ are inner changeable as well. Not that I'd want to keep a 7.5/8" diffs in my truck once a v8 was swapped in anyways. I'd look into a tundra 10.5 or lc 9.5 and sas the rig.

In the end your better off selling the runner as is and buying a v8 runner 03+ you don't seem to computer literate so I don't think a swap like this would be wise on your part, or else you will end up with thousands invested into a truck that's still torn apart in your garage.

There is a reason you don't see a lot of people swapping out these motors you can get plenty of power with a supercharger and urd goodies. But in the end of the day your still driving a suv with the aerodynamics of a shoebox.

No, sorry, second gen 4Runners. I think that'd be a 5th gen mini-truck, just before the Tacoma? But I don't know for sure if they ever had 4.88s. I know some 1990-1995 4Runners did, but they aren't common.

I wanna say I pulled a pair of 4.88s from a 3rd gen mini 89-95.5 and yes the 2nd gen 4runners 90-95 came with them also.
To me the generations are strange they start in 79-83 as first Gens but there where stouts also heck some of those came with factory 5.29 gearing! And then really we drive 4th gen 4runners if you count trekkers/wolverines/breaker breakers lol
Okay enough of hijacking the thread had a little to much to drink.
