well its gonna likely have the typical toyota bed rust. the 20r motor is pretty strong and reliable. axels are good on those. what are you looking to do with it? muddin or daily driver?

well a good wheeling yota is hard to beat for fun and reliability. How far are you looking to go with it. Basic mudder yota setup ive seen is huge tires and 5:29 gears. of course add some lockers. are you keeping the stock engine?

Frames are usually fine around here. Body doesn't seem to be a priority. Engine run well without knocks or smoking. Has cross-over steering been done yet? J arms are the weak link of the steering. Looks like the right base for your progect though. How much?

nice. if you want more power toyota has a nice 3.4 turbo. if i ever get into engine conversions id do either that or a 4.3 vortec. 350 is good to a certain degree but it would make awful balance if its for flexing.

Neither engine will be a good choice for his build. 3.4 turbo has a late power curve. 350 in a toy is just asking for trouble. Yes, I know, they are all over the place. And 99% of them have over-heat issues and are unreliable.

The only conversion I personally will do to mine is the 4.3. Good torque stock. But having access to torque cams makes it a no-brainer. FI and zero problems make it the right choice.

Stick with the 20R and you'll be golden.

Nice score Scott.

I need a part off that bed. :brow: I need one of the screws that holds the dealy that keeps the tail gate from falling down all the way when it's open.

Tailgate or bed side? I still have the blue tailgate.

Bed side, the tail gate doesn't affix with a screw, just a square knob that fits if you turn the dealybob sideways enough.
