I have a 1990 1 ton truck, u-haul spec, 3.0 v6, automatic, dually rear axle (10 ft u-haul)

i also have for parts a 1990 4runner 3.0v6 4wd automatic.

i am wondering if any of the transmission or 4wd is swappable onto the 1 ton, or at least what is worth keeping from the 4 runner before i scrap it.

the 4 runner has the same engine, but the engine does not spin and there is no coolant. hopefully i could get this 4 runner to run.

aside from that, i have swapped the front fenders, hood, bumper and grille to the u-haul

i am going to swap the instrument cluster to have a tach, and the odometer is within 1000 mile difference

door panels with pockets look like they will fit also.

maybe the rear tire carrier will fit on the u-haul for extra security and to make a cargo mount.

Now is the U-haul 4WD? If not then the extra holes for the axle may not be on the frame, but I would assume the tranny would be the same, or at least mount up the same, just minus the T-case. I would strip the locked up engine of anything (For extra, side of the road use)

Thats my $0.02

oh and, what engine does the '90 run? I know the '88 Hilux has the 22RE.

this has the 3.0 v6 between both trucks.
i am told a 5spd manual will swap in, and may as well put in a supra straight six!

my 78 camper has a 20r, 2.2 manual 4spd, sort of the ea81 version of the toyota u-haul:rolleyes: half ton axle, single tire

the u-haul is dual axle, 1 ton

it looks like the fame is different as far as the front crossmember is taller on the 4wd, and welded to the frame. i would assume the front half of the frames would have to be chopped in, and somehow adapt the 1 ton hubs onto the front axle. the 4 runner wheels are almost twice as big as the 14 inch wheels

I aggree, the 5spd will most likely bolt up, I mean I dout Toyota made two diffrent bolt patterns for the Auto and Manual bell housings.

I didn't think about trying to adapt the 1-ton hubs on to the 4WD axle. Hmmm. That would be cool to have a 4WD 1-ton u-haul Toyota! :banana: "Move in any weather" Haha.

So all in all, what are you keeping off the 4-runner? besides what you listed before.

On a side note, where was that Alliance meet you were just at? I like the air intake on trashwagon lol, one guy said it was a turbo Hehe :-p

Frames should be the same, welding will be required. If anyone here can do it, it'd be you Miles.

those videos were shot almost 5 years ago, back in april of o5. it was only 3 years ago since ihad the tapes captured to dvd, 2 years ago since i had a computer with software, a year ago when i last uploaded, and finally now for that batch of videos. there will be a good 175 toatal videos from that catch of tape. they can be redundant, but there was no such thing as youtube when i shot the stuff originally.
