    Here is the E-locker wiring.
    IMG_2056.jpg
    It is from the 98 tacoma that I got the rear end out of. It has the ABS, tail lights, fuel pump, along with the e-locker wires with the relay and switch.

    I will be taking out the tail lights wires. I am not sure how I will be integrating the two systems together. The tacoma ABS wiring may be better suited as it was built for the current rear end, but not the sequoia wiring that is being used.

    My goal is to make the ABS work, so I have to figure out were and how I will install the system and get them to meet up. The tacoma and sequoia have opposing wire locations. The tacoma has the wires go through the drivers side floor and the sequoia has it going through the passenger side.

    Maybe I will be able to reverse the 98 tacoma abs, fuel tank wires to the opposite side of the frame and tie them into the sequoia wires.
    So then I will need to wire up the sequoia fuel emissions canister and venting.

    UHG, I begin to wonder if I need an e-locker or ABS. I am so sick of wiring.
    More thought will be needed.
    I may need to lay under the truck and just stair at it, LOL!

    I guess I will start by dismantling the wiring harness pictured above. I will take care not to damage the fuel and ABS. The e-locker has specific metal brackets to tie the harness into the frame and rear end.

    Rainy cold and wet HEHE. That's pretty much why I haven't been working on it. Two months and its time to get going again.

    So the engine cranks so what do I need? GAS!

    I pulled out the sequoia fuel tank, fuel lines, evap box out of storage.
    The sequoia has a vapor pressure sensor in the fuel pump cover housing. The 4runner tank does not.
    I set the two tanks side by side. They look similar. The sequioa tank fuel pump housing is one inch longer. I cut it one inch from the top, over lapped it and riveted it together. I also had to take out a inch of the fuel line that leads to the pump. It dropped rite in the 4runner tank.

    Another problem I have now raised is I have lost the fuel vent when changing out the fuel pump housing. That will be next.
    I didn't take any photo's but here is a diagram of the fuel system (from google images).

    This thread is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen on the internet.

    I have this fear though that it's really some kind of social/psychological experiment, and a completed truck will never be presented...

    tell me about it. Its real, I think! For the most part the 4runner looks like its ready to go. I got no gas, no brakes, and I still need to finish 4 body mounts. GAS will make it run though, so that is priority. I got to get going on a video.

    So the Sequoia fuel pump housing cut down to put into the 4runner tank is not really working out. The fuel lever sending float makes contact with the plastic basket the fuel pump sits in. I looked on line and I am seeing 01 02 4runner fuel pump housings may be the way to go for 3 reasons. 1 It has the vapor pressure sensor. 2 the fuel level sending unit is the same as the sequoia one. 3 the fuel tank was likely not redesigned. Maybe a whole tank from a 01 02 4runner is the best bet. I see they also have another vent for the fuel spout that mine does not have. I did get 5 gallons of gas out of the sequoia tank, LoL.

    Good to see some progress here! I can't wait to see the finished product, but I also know there's no such thing as a "finished" project car. :D

    I keep telling myself, " I am not selling this one" LOL. I think I say that each time. If I were able to hold on to it, this is a cool one for sure.

    I went and picked the 01 toyota 4runner fuel tank today. Two and a half hour round trip for a 40.00 fuel tank. I think this one is the one, wink wink.

    here are the tanks.
    IMG_2105.jpg
    left to right new 01 4runner, 96 4runner, and the monster sequoia.

    So I got a little excited today. I was testing the fuel pump sending units on the sequoia to see if the gas gauge would work. All but the new tank worked. It was when I was turning the key to on when I notice none of the pumps would run. So I turned the key to start and the pump would pump.

    I am one sunny afternoon away from hooking up the gas tank on the ground with fuel just to hear it run already. LOL!

    Since the new 01 fuel tank sensor was not working (the part looked burnt). I just went with the sequoia pump and sender.

    The pump was a little longer so I just trimmed off a little bit of the line.

    The fuel level sending units were similar in design but were wired different. One was 3 wires and the sequoia two. The fuel float of the sequoia was above the filter sock. It made contact. I pulled the float and cut a grove in it.
    IMG_2108.jpg
    This grove turned the float so it no longer makes contact with the filter sock.

    Here is a picture of the 01 4runner fuel pump housing with the 01 sequoia fuel pump and fuel level sending unit installed.
    IMG_2109.jpg
    The old 1's are to the left.

    After It was installed, I took out the cut off valve to peek inside. I used a coat hanger to pick up the fuel float. I pulled it up and verified it did not make contact with anything. It works good.

    Now that those problems are solved, a new one comes up. The new tank has a smaller fill spout. LOL! aaaahhhhhhhwwwrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

    So the gas tank is out and pretty well figured out. Today I cleaned up the removal of the original tacoma cross-member on the fuel tank side.
    from this
    IMG_2112.jpg
    to this.
    IMG_2114.jpg
    It can be seen how the brake lines were bent to go around the cross-member. There still is a thin piece of metal at the top. I will need to figure out how to attach the e brake cable as it was mounted here in the cross-member.

    I am just cleaning up before installing the tank for good.

    Today I messed with the Idea of mounting the E brake cable between the gas tank and the frame. There is no room. I do not know how I will work this out. First I put the gas tank back in to take a look at the room available. I took a bracket and cut it down to see If it would work out. I don't remember what frame this came from.
    IMG_2117.jpg

    I wanted to make the bracket small.
    IMG_2118.jpg

    Here it is mounted on the cable end but the alignment is wrong and there isn't enough frame for a good fit.
    IMG_2119.jpg

    To morrow I will makes some marks and remove the tank. Then I will take a look at how I can mount the cable to the frame. I have to dig out the other part that mounts to the frame along with the cable that goes into the cab.
    IMG_2120.jpg

    I also tool the Sequoia main fuel line, return line, and stuffed them in the frame. I attached them to the engine. It looks like they may work. I have to get the fuel filter moved though. It is right in the middle of the area the e brake wants to be. Its cramped on the drivers side. Gas tank, transfer case, e brake, front drive line, fuel filter, brake, lines, and an exhaust pipe all fighting for room. It would be nice to have the 98 4runners 2 inches back on the wheel base plus the room I moved the rear end forward in the 98 tacoma frame.

    I will be looking at the fuel fill routing also soon also.
    the weather was good today.

    I dented the first gas tank trying to make it fit. I ended up cutting out the metal in the way to make it fit. The new tank fits without a dent, so I think I will work around it.

    So I found the ebrake cables and the lever I was looking for, but not until the end of the day. I got to get reorganized. I am making a pile of parts I am not using and another of part I am.

    I found this in the door, thought I would share it.
    IMG_2122.jpg
    I tried calling and texting the number. I guess it was too old. One of the parts sold off the 4runner was the engine.

    I even skipped the gym today. Hope this was a good enough reason.


    I just went for it. The original Sequoia main fuel line and return were MANipulated until they were as close to the fuel tank as possible. Then I ran to the part store and got 2 feet of fuel line, hooked them up to the tank, and now the engine and the tank are connected. then I butchered up the 1996 toyota 4runner fuel fill spout until it was intact. I put gas in it and let her rip.

    Is it weird for me to watch my start up video more than once?

    I really need to get the fuel lines tidied up. Maybe figure out a better method to run them.
    IMG_2129.jpg

    The fuel filter is just sitting on the edge of the tank. I need to make a bracket to attach it to something, LOL! IMG_2130.jpg

    The snow is gone now but this is from 6 days ago.
    IMG_2124.jpg

    So today I scabbed together the upper and lower radiator hoses and also hooked the transmission lines to the radiator. Then I added some engine coolant.
    I need brakes and to check all the fluid levels. If I can get it to stop, Its going to the muffler shop.

    2UZ actually sounds pretty sweet with open headers. Can't wait to see this thing tearing it up when it's done.

    The drivers side exhaust manifold is cut 4 or 5 inches from the flange to the down pipe. The passenger side Is 3 or 4 feet with the cat intact.

    I did put it in 4 wheel drive and 4 low. 4 low helped keep the speed of movement down. I kind of moved it around more than I should. I got the tires filled with mud and ended up throwing a few rooster tails. I had to hose off the mud.
