Yeah. We have a 22RE and a 22R powered pickup around here, I'd rather drive the 22RE but I'd rather troubleshoot, buy parts for, or work on on the 22R.

I get that logic for sure
. After downloading the PDF of the factory service manual for the 22re (1993) . Troubleshooting became really dummy proof

The file is too large to share here. (Its a zipped file) . But you can find it online like I did. Free. Or feel free to contact me. And maybe I share in an email

Hello! Been awhile since some updates with the build. So here it is. I've been re designing and building the second generation roof rack for chinook. After getting a feel for and the performance of the 1st roof rack.

So here is the new one. Its aluminum this time.
Vs chromed steel. So lighter and no worries for rust.

Is a basket vs a platform with a railing topping out at 5 " from the floor of the basket.

This one is 8'x 5'6" of usable space. And comes in at ~49lbs/ 50lbs
1st gen was 4'x 5'6" of usable space and weighed 42 lbs

No welds . I have a TiG. But no experience with Aluminum yet. And this is almost entirely made of 1/16" wall square tubing. With some ⅛" angle attached to certain zones for strength where it will need it.

Hopefully the pics can answer any questions yall have. But feel free to ask!

Also rebuilt the front drive shaft including the double cardan joint.
Using the kit from NWOR.

(North West Off Road)

Also. As some of you know. There is that large 3/16" maybe hole in the back side of the ball yoke for the double cardan.
I did decide to fill that hole with some jb weld. BUT drilled a smaller 1/16" hole next to it. So grease can still escape from there and not build pressure and want to squeeze through the other side where the rubber ring is on the face of the ball

Trying an approach for water proofing the transition from camper to pop top, thats still flexible with the constant raising and lowering

Is there enough room so the conduit doesn't kink when the top is down?

What did you eventually figure out with the timing? I'm dying to know if/how it was resolved

No there wasn't any hard kinks on it. BUT I'll try and peak inside there sometime. To know for sure. . It looked fine when I was testing it all out though.

Ugh. No nothing yet. I wish had some better ideas What it could be.

Cuz everything timing chain side looks correct.

0⁰ tdc for crank and the cam timing mark is at the 11:45 mark.
I imagine if I had chain stretch,  those would wouldn't line up as they should, am I correct on that?

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.
