Decided not to work on the motor yesterday since Im waiting for a little tool to help with head gasket removal (that stuff is on there). I did decide to break out the grinder and work on the rear axle. I got all the welds from the several link brackets off. Now I just need to patch up a couple spots where I hit the housing with the torch and it will be ready.

Guess its time to update. The motor is together (just needs rear main seal and pan gasket changed) and the trans is rebuilt. I hadnt planned to rebuild the trans, but when I pulled it apart to change the output shaft I discovered the 3-4 clutches were worn. So I picked up a rebuild kit and shift kit from a buddy at work and rebuilt it. Ive also cleaned up the tcase and installed both trans/tcase adapters. Next on the list is to get the motor and tcase mounts built and get it all installed.

Now on to the pics

Awesome build man! Did you upgrade your birfs or did you keep the stocks in there? Just curious considering your tire/engine combo.

Thanks. No I haven't upgraded the birfs yet. I will worry about that later. I'll also add a locker upfront when I do.

I did a little more work today. I should have time to work on it this week and next weekend so I started prepping to install the drivetrain. Goal is to have it in by end of next weekend.

I cleaned up the engine bay some more and gave it a fresh coat of paint. I thought I had a pic of it after pressure washing but I don't. So here is a before any cleaning and after.









I still want to put one more coat on but I ran outta paint. I'll do it tomorrow

I also started building a motor mount before I called it quits.

The drivetrain is in, well kind of. The motor mounts are tacked in place and I have most of the crossmember parts cut out and ready to be welded, just havent done. it. Hopefully have time tomorrow to weld up the crossmember. I did most of the work by myself, so it took way longer than it should lol. The motor is resting on the mounts so that is a good feeling. Its sitting a little lower than I like and have seen when most ppl do this swap. I think its from not having a body lift and running the gm auto trans.

Heres a couple pics. Ill get some more after I get the crossmember built.

Guess I should update this a little...

I bought some Summit headers for a s10 2wd. They will have to be modified a little, but I think they will work good.



Driver side




Pass side




Had some clearance issues with the power steering pump and steering shaft, so I removed the rag joint. It will also get better when I relocate the steering box




I built the crossmember. Still need to add some gussets to it, but I will do that when I take the drivetrain out to finish welding the motor mounts.










I also got the rear axle housing cleaned up and primed. I cut down the rear brake backing plates to get ready for a disk brake swap. I borrowed another set of 63's from from my buddy incase I need them to add leafs to my pack. I think I will end up ordering a AAL, but Im going to wait until I get the leafs underneath the 4runner.








Im on call for work this weekend and my wife is taking the kids and going to stay a few hours away with her dad for labor day weekend. So as long as I dont get called into work (knock on wood), I plan to get the rear sitting on the leaf springs this weekend.

Time for another update. I spent alot of time cutting out the rear suspension this past weekend. Im glad that is over. Ill let the pics do the talking for now....













AND FINALLY...





The rear shackle angle is too lazy and the rear axle is too far back. So Im going to move the springs hangers forward some. I also think Im going to order a AAL to pick up the back end some more. The front still has to come down tho. Im hoping the weight that I need to add to the front will help, if not I will be move the front spring hanger back some.

Nice to see the tires on it!! Whats your frame height under under the drivers door? How low does the drive train hang below the frame?

Thanks. It felt great to finally see the tires on it. Right now the frame height under the passenger door (just a random spot I measured last night) is 29" I think. I didnt get a measurement for the drivetrain yet for some reason. Ill get some measurements this evening.

Haven't really done too much. I've rebuilt the steering box and tapped it for hydro assist. The holes are just plugged for now tho. I've also started cutting the plates to move the steering box forward. Hoping to have that done before next weekend so I can pull the drivetrain out and get everything fully welded up. Then I can start putting stuff in permantly. Here's a few pics...

This part fought me as you can see by the messed up holes. I was so aggravated I almost scraped this box


The little balls really wasn't that bad. I just fed them thru the two holes where the split tube is mounted


This is after drilling the top hole for hydro


This is the hole in the side


Here's the box back together


Here's the box mocked in place. It's a tight squeeze to get the drag link between the crank pully and tie rod. Just another issue I'm dealing with because I'm using the gm auto with no body lift lol


I also mounted the B&M shifter. I wanted it in front of the tcase shifter but there's no room. Kinda messes me up if I ever run dual tcases but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.




I also got my radiator in. It's a universal 22x19 from speedway. I'll get it mounted after I pull and reinstall the drivetrain.


I did a little flex testing too. Still had some up travel to go but I stopped here.

I pulled the motor out and welded up the motor mounts and steering box mounts. I also added a few gussets to the motor mounts. The motor is back in now and I have started mounting the accessories to it.









My next move will probably be to building new cross member for the gas tank to mount to and radiator mounts. I also plan on sending off the PCM and getting it reprogrammed.

I guess I should update this a little....

I installed a GM fuel pump in the Toyota tank. I just cut the end off the factory Toyota bracket and used a hose clamp to hold on the new GM pump.


I built a new throttle cable bracket to use the factory Toyota cable


I built a new crossmember for the gas tank. I also gave the tank a fresh coat of paint




Before I put the tank in, I moved from rear spring hangers back a little and added the AAL to the 63s


I made up the new fuel lines. I took the Toyota piece that fed the motor spliced new 3/8 FI hose on it. Then I flared the end of the GM hard line a little and used FI clamps to hold the hose on. I hooked the Toyota end directly the to fuel filter. It runs over the trans to the back of the motor.


I had to modify the driver side header to fit. I also cut the emissions ports off both headers and painted them with high temp paint.




I picked up a factory GM computer mount and bolted it down. It ended up fitting pretty good. I also sent the computer to LT1swap.com to have him program it.




Then I started on the wiring. First was to thing out the IH1 and IH2 Toyota plugs. I found out that I have a weird model 4runner. I have found two different factory Toyota EWDs (one for a 1990 and one for a 1995) and neither one match mine correctly, but I think I have it lined out.


Then I went to work on the GM harness. Here it is spread out on the table.


Loom removed


Wires I don't need removed


Loom and wires that were removed up until that point.




I then mocked it in the engine bay to get my routed and lengths figured out


Back on the table to shorten about 45 wires going to the gm computer


After shortening those wires. Now its ready to build the new fuse block


Back in with the new fuse block. Im going to loom it after I test fire the motor. I bought braided wire loom. Should look good.

Got some flexible radiator hoses. The first one I got for the lower was too short. Hopefully the one I have now will work, but I wont really know until its running.




I have welded up the front spring hanger and painted the front end. I also got the transmission cooler mounted up.


I built a fan shroud for the radiator and got it all installed.


That pretty much gets me to where Im at today. Im going to be pretty busy over the next month with work, so I probably wont get to fire it up until after that. Im getting closer tho.
