Holy SHIT that's a sick rig.
I'd always wondered if the iForce motors would fit in the older smaller rigs - apparently the answer is yes. Sweet bob job, too.
Yeah he did a really good job, it looks factory. He had to widen the frame for the engine to fit.
It was interesting in the snow. There was about 15 rigs (mostly heeps) and it took all day and it was plenty dark when we finished.
Any pics of the v8 in that runner?
I have seen this truck in person, and chatted with the owner for quite a while.
First, the owner is one of the coolest, nicest guys EVER. We wheeled with him on HC with RS, and dude was out there, WITH A WALKING BOOT, helping us get a few of the 80s across the creek. TOP NOTCH GUY.
Second, Brian. No. That 4 runner is 100% custom You have to hack the front frame off, physically widen the space between the frame rails, and THEN double wide the frame, so everything will mount up properly. You have to custom widen the inner structure of the body. As well as the front clip. Then custom build the hood latching and everything so it all lines up.
So, yeah, they'll fit, the same way a cummins will fit in a 60 something volkswagon beatle. You can do it, but only a master fabricator is going to make it look good. Its by no means in the same galaxy as a 3.4 swap.
(by the way, not trying to be an ass there at all, but just trying to scratch the surface on the owners fab skills. I got goosebumps looking at his truck)
Isaac, I hope someone has pics. Hoppa isn't kidding. It looks FACTORY. EVERY attention to detail was taken, the entire engine bay looks like it rolled off the Toyota line. He swapped EVERYTHING out of the Tundra. Engine, PS, Washer bottle, fuse box, tranny, dash stuff, everything. The entire interior looks factory, but is 100% custom. He hadn't painted yet when I saw it, but the fiberglass work, and the tranny tunnel work were unreal.
I hope everyone gets to see it.
Troy, this is the truck I was talking about.
