Good find? Or bad?

hey guys i found a 97 tacoma that was totaled for sale in kanasas( my uncle lives there) it has the 3.4 with a trd supercharger on it and a rear locker in there rear, its only got 111K on it, the guy wants 2000 for the whole truck, Do you guys think this would be a good donor truck for my 3.4 swap?

it sounds pretty good.

Will the rear axle work for your swap, i saw you were looking for a locker. If it doesnt work you could sell it.

You could problly make some money on some of the other stuff too.


what would it cost to get the truck here though?

Yeah, and having the whole donor truck will make the swap easier.

Automatic or manual, and is that what you want to run is the real question, because you need a donor with the kind of ECU for the tranny you want to run.

I could use another charger for the wifes truck if that helps. Or I could do your swap in trade for the charger.
