Hello guys, I'm new to the mini truck game. Over the past years I've owned a 93 LEXUS gs300 since 2009. Build head, stock bottom end pushing 520 hp at the wheels "on my stock Auto 4 speed trans, which recently started slipping so I can see a R154 conversion soon. Anyways, I've wanted to do a build on an older car for a while, and last October a buddy of mine sent me a CL link to a 94 Toyota pickup. The truck was listed for 600 dollars. After contacting the seller, I found out he lived minutes away from me. I drove there and he showed me the truck which had a blown 22re engine, and had been sitting for three years. I talked him down to 480 bucks after walking around the truck and we had a deal. An hour later I took it home. [URL=[/URL] And after doing a bunch of research of what people are doing with their Minis, I decided to do a 1uzfe V8 swap. And over the last months I've been working on gathering parts, and working on the truck. I finally decided to sign up for this forum today and here I am starting my first mini truck build on here. Follow my build for upcoming updates. Specs: 1994 Toyota Pickup 22re (blown) automatic, steering column shift 2wd. 74,000 original miles Body is in a good shape, but he bed can use a little bit of work however.
