Just kicking this idea around. No real pulling the trigger ideas going on yet , but , was looking into motor swaps, just to do some window shopping. See whats out there for reasonable/ cost effective options.
2 biggest things, (which honestly really narrows my options ) I don't want a suspension lift , more importantly I don't want a body lift .
Don't care to make my center of gravity any higher, nor do I want to body lift my camper and cab from the frame, more work than I'm interested in .
So all I've really read that could be my best option would be a 2rz/3rz swap. (Wiring doesn't worry me, and bolt in motor mounts are $150) would just need to figure out the tranny set up, since I'm currently running an L52 from an 83' so no removable bellhousing
I'm comfortable with how my 22re handles and pulls. The ol girl does alright , and I can still pass on the highway sometimes , but I'm usually cruise'n 60 - 65 mph. And ill be dropping a gear or 2 quite often with ANY kind of obvious incline lol.
Average 17 mpg (I imagine this would go up a little with the swap)
What do you guys gals think? would be worth it? Its a popular swap! But 100% of the swaps ive read about are still in an empty truck bed or 4runner(granted usually rolling on 33s ~35s)
Not a 5000 lb Chinook on 32s
Tell me of any other ideas you got instead too!
I've read about the 4.3, the 3.4 , om617, 1uz, 4bt , Etc. All mention body or suspension lifts.
