Rob's 89 Toyota Rockcrawler from 35's to 42's
These are some random clips of my Toyota pickup from Tuttle Creek (near
Randolph, KS) and down at Disney, OK. Started out with a Toyota straight
axle swap and 35" procomp xterrains... Ended up 1 ton axles (d60/14b) and
42" super swamper IROKs. Had a blast in that rig. Yes the engine was making
a loud clatter but kept chuggin' away. The guy I sold the motor to called
to let me know the cam was wore so much and that's why we could never get
the valves adjusted right. Front springs was a home brew toy rear pack, 63"
chevy rears. Running a 2.28+4.7 doubler with twin stick.
22re turbo stock motor
any questions email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bone stock 22re motor to
the injectors. Even afm(map sensor) is stock. im running 8psi anything over
10 psi makes the truck sputter cause of the afm so nothing over 10 psi. i
have a safc2 but just hooked up for show until i Dyno it i have been driving
around like this with no problems for like 6 months. 31 inch super swampers
4 inch rough country lift and thats about it stock rear end so if i had
gears it would be faster. compared
to stock i would say it was a jump from a 9 out of 10 much faster

Turbo Supra 4Runner
Crawling in Moab, UT April 2009.
I was having trouble because I didn't have the rear locker wired up. Of
course it doesn't help having wet tires. Unfortunately my baby had to be
sold in order to purchase my FZJ80. Filmed and edited by user russtuff.

Turbo 3RZ-FE 4Runner - Test Drive with Turbo Kit
Quick test drive video as requested several times.
Note: At the end of the video, where the AFR and Boost gauges are shown, pay attention to the
AFR gauge when I go WOT in first gear. It stays in closed loop, but then
goes open loop as soon as it hits second. For everyone who knows
about/tunes these trucks, is this normal? I am concerned about it being so
lean for being in Boost under load
while in first gear. Any help would be appreciated.
First start of a 1985 22re after a full rebuild.
Dad got this new back in 1985. It has been a great little truck going
through a lot of states over the years. With well over 200,000 miles on it,
it was time for a rebuild. This is a video of the first start after getting
the engine back in. I used a master kit from EPN engnbldr (Ted) along with
the 268 cam, and RV head. The timing chain has the driver side steel rail.
It is a 86 22r block bored .040 over.
Did the 12 30 to 50 MPH full throttle pulls, came back let it cool and
retorqued the head. Did a 1800-2500 RPM run for 15 mins. then readjusted
the valves to .008 in .012 exh. Am at 90 miles and going to change the oil
The whining is the alt. because I cleaned the hell out of it and took the
oil off those 25 year old bearings. LOL Time for a Chevy alt. upgrade
Here is a link to the place I got my parts.
