    Hey! I've had my runner for about 9 months now, and its been treating me well, lol lots of quirks and of course a blown head gasket/spun bottom end bearing from the 3vz but we're back up and running now. I'm looking to do either a 7MGTE, 5VZ, or 1UZ swap wondering if people know which will be most powerful for the least cost. I have 8 auxiliary lights on the front not including the aftermarket H4 led halo conversion kit for the stock bulbs, i have 4 15W led high output lights, 8000K HID floodlights, combined with 12000K spotlights and 55w silverstar ultra's i do however have 2 more sets of 12000K HID kits on the way! hoping for the near future to build a safari rack and mount a 52" lightbar on the hood and a 42" on the roof. I have 31x10.5x15 MT's on right now but would love to do a 4" lift and put 35's on when i do the engine swap. My sound system is pretty killer with a Bose/Pioneer mix of speakers and 2 12" MTX subs.

    Back to the topic of engine swaps, I have a 5MGE and a 7MGTE that would be able to go into my truck, but i need a W55 trans/transfer case, or a W56 bell housing that was from a 5MGE or 7MGE/GTE, If anyone knows where to find them or has one sitting around they are willing to sell let me know. also in the market for a speedo cable, as i have replaced my cruise control module, my transfer case speed gear, and my dash and then i figured out it was the cable... apparently that is a common problem for my year. again, also in the market for a mint passenger fender, hard to come by i know, but you never know. also, if any of you 2nd gen owners have your OEM bumpers hanging around from an aftermarket swap or what have you, im also looking for that.
