Default 1st gen 4Runner body swap to 3rd gen?

Didn't someone here have a 1st gen 4Runner body they had put on a 3rd gen frame and drivetrain? I searched and couldn't find anything.

Sounds like the rig on CL a while back. Built by Irbis I believe?

Not sure. I believe I saw this a year or two ago. It has been a while. I picked up a 2000 Taco with a trashed body from a rollover. I intended to yank the engine for my 87 4Runner, but have now given though to a body swap from another 1st gen 4Runner. Was just looking to get some advice on the body swap since Google didn't turn anything up.

Oleg built one. Nothing online about it though.

What sort of advice were you looking for?

That is likely the one I was looking for. I tried searches and obviously didn't hit the right keywords. Thanks!

I am wanting to know how close the body mounts might be. I figured they will have to be moved, but does the 1st gen body land on the 3rd gen frame rails rather than outside the rails? Just tossing the idea around. I might to have to do some measuring once I drag my 87 out of the garage. Just picked up the 2000 frame/drivetrain and haven't had a chance to try to measure anything for comparison.
