If you have a question about his transmissions, give Marlin a call. I've been to his shop and watched him, he does good work. If the gears are from the same source he get's the rest from, then they are equal in grade to the factory ones.

Thanks, I plan on calling him with some questions this week. I'll also be asking him about his clutches.

What was the final tally ($) on your dual case setup? (case, driveshafts, crossmember)

Talked with Marlin today and I must say that his knowledge of Toyota's is mindboggling. Very nice guy. Anyway, this aftermarket gear set will not work on Tacoma's or 3rd gen 4Runners, only on 86-95 trucks with the R150F tranny. The 4.31 first gear from a turbo tranny will not work on Tacoma or 3rd gen 4Runners either.

Yeah, cause the new R150's are kinda like the next generation. However, you could always get an older R150 and get the crawler adapter for the drivers side t-case... Peace, Wes

Yes, that is correct, but beyond the modifying I want to do.

aprox $1500 for the complete dual case set-up
$150 for the used driveshafts from a salvage yard
$180 to get the driveshafts modified
$22.67 Toyota Part # 36303-34030. shift knob, proper shift pattern
used the stock crossmember no modifications


Here's my write up on the install: http://brucethesniper.8k.com/4runner/marlin/index.html
