Thank you for the kind words, I'm looking forward to getting some content together of it in action over the cooler months. It's a million degrees outside right now and my wife hates sleeping in a tent without AC, lol.
My early wheeling days were done with an 88 4Runner, 22RE 5-speed (still have it). The modern overlander would never be able to tolerate ~20s 0-60 times. Found an old quote on YotaTech:

"what ever a semi truck is add about 1 sec and that is my 0-60"

Yes the narrow frame of the early 4Runner is an asset that is easily overlooked but super valuable once you're in the woods.

Damn it,bro awesome wheels ! suv-fire. My father is very fond of such cars and he has a toyota tacoma 2020 and he constantly improves it, I constantly watch him in the garage, as I am also interested in this area and I love to ride with him in the mud. Once he bought a lot of things after seeing an ad for Sell Equipment and put himself a bunch of all sorts of things. Now he wants to buy himself a tundra 2006 and improve it to the ideal, so that you can go camping and hiking, since we have steep places with mountains here. I hope he will have time to do this before the summer and we will have an awesome time out of town, I already missed the kebabs and fishing...

Very cool. I currently don't see the need to do this with the reliability and reliability of the 5vz-fe but it's definitely cool to have options. I've followed and very much been interested in the Keisler swapped RX-8's as a fun auto-x/track car. Much respect to what he does and the quality looks great. The price to performance and replaceability of the chassis/drivetrain makes the rx-8 option very appealing.

Really impressive. I love the thought of separating the body and frame and executing a full on build like this. Would love to see more pics and some driving video/impressions.

This is an amazing build. When boundries are pushed in the right direction with good execution it makes for an interesting project worth admiring. Your explaination and motivation makes sense to my why questions. Would love to see a video posted of the motor running, maybe a short walk through.

This is a neat swap. It would definitely be nice to double the power and double the amount of gear ratios in the trans. I'm sure it would be even more fun with the Edelbrock supercharger that was released a little bit ago.

I finally got around to making an IG for this thing yesterday, it's @LFX_T4R . There will be lots of content videos on there. I'll start putting more content out again since it's spring and running again-- I ran into some cooling issues ~3hrs into a muddy trail ride and had to reengineer some things. Now it's got a custom aluminum rad with a brushless fan on it-- thing sounds like a jet engine. Somewhere north of 4500CFMs.

Who knows what'll happen to it. It'll be long travel next winter-- this winter I made lots of quality of life improvements and had to reengineer the cooling system.

That's really the whole reason for being on this swap, per-se. Long-term cost benefit is just really appealing.

@LFX_T4R I'm currently working on swapping an LFX into my 1977 Celica.

Still have a ways to go though...

1977 Celica Liftback Build

Too bad the LFX engine harness is still on backorder from GM. I'm not sure how to modify it myself for standalone applications.
