Default Monks WTB thread somehow turned into Toyota pickup engine swap BS and sister fight

Rusty old bleeder broke off in the caliper and I don't feel like spending any more time or money on inferior parts.

I need calipers and brackets, non sport preferred.

Have an impressive selection of sex-toys to trade if interested.

Gasoline makes for a poor lubricant. FYI.

Apparently my gas gauge is now a little off... by about a half a tank. Thank Baby Jesus I happened to have a can in the bed. Unfortunately, it has a safety nozzle, and it completely dowsed me in fuel. But hey, at least the starter cranked long enough to get me going again.
V8 swap imminent.

**** those safety gas cans. Worst things ever.

Let's do a 1GR swap from a newer 4runner/Taco/FJ Cruiser. Wiff 6spd. And Brotrex.

What year is that truck? I'm going shopping.

90. Transfer case puts the front drive shaft on the passengers side, so that makes things a little difficult, but I'm sure there are adapters floating around somewhere.

Trust me, I thought of that a long time ago. It's way too long. There's plenty of room side to side, but the bay is really short.

If that's easy, you should do it. Cheap motors, enormous power gain over what you have now, and you'd probably gain a shitload of gas mileage, too.

Well, it couldn't get much worse. The 3.0 is the weakest, slowest, most inefficient engine Toyota ever produced. A BP swap would be a significant improvement.

See if any of those scrap yards down there have an LS400 rotting away.
