That has the 3.0 V6 in it? Or was that a typo?

Bill, yes somebody swapped 3.0 in that truck before but i'm not sure on the condition of the engine, thats why i'm selling it only as a chassis. Oleg

Hello Oleg,
would an 85 4 runner body swap onto it easily? I have a white 85 with a clean body.

Wheel base extended cab pick up longer than 4 Runner but everything is possible with the right tools.Thanks

Rock Dog- here's a thought.
If you have seen ScaldedDog's 4Runner, you've seen an extended wheelbase 4Runner with a great departure angle and still room to sleep in back. The only downside is center breakover, which can be fixed with a 2" body lift and gas tank lift.

Yes, it is doable.

huh? how does a body lift help undercarriage (t-case, xmembers, tranny) breakover? I mean I get the gas tank, but seriously, Mr. Engineer type guy, explain this to me....

often the hangup on the belly of 4runners is the gas tank. with a 2" BL you can raise the tank up above the framerails, thus eliminating a major hangup point.
