SR5 Gauge Swap
« on: Nov 21, 2009, 06:04:54 PM »
I am fairly new to toyotas and still learning but I read in a topic that an SR5 gauge cluster will work in a 88 base 4 cyl 4 speed 2wd pickup.  Has anybody else tried it in this pickup?  What year or vehicle should I get the gauge cluster out of?  Would I have to change the fuel float or change the speed gear in the tranny to make the speed correct?

Any 84-88 should be fine. You should change out the oil sending unit. It is pretty stright forward and easy.

I found this info about this swap.
Here is a link for that:

Thanks alot for the info.  It looks too easy on paper and I was just curious about it.  I want to have the gauges instead of the idiot lights and the tach.

I appreciate the reference to how to install the cluster.  I am going to a local u pull it and get a SR5 cluster and install it in the pickup.  Thanks.

I have a 1988 22R 5 speed 2wd.  I put an SR5 cluster in almost 2 years ago.  It came from a 1987 4Runner.  There are several articles on how to do this.  You don't want an automatic, turbo, or 6 cylinder.  There are also 85 and 110mph clusters.
