    Bones! Are you still enjoying the BW 1354 swap? I kept my 4405 and it has been fun but I really miss being able to do cookies in the snow and mud... what did you snag your 1354m out of?

    It depends on what all you are gonna do... mine was about $1500 but I bought everything new minus the trans and I did headers exhaust cold air with the swap! But I can tell you its well worth ever dime you spend! And everything is plug and play... only took me 20hrs in 30° weather!

    Thanks man! And as for how you are supposed to use 4wd, I think it just depends on what part of the country your in! I was taught by an old man out here in Colorado that you never use 4wd... it is only for when you get stuck... but my mom puts her manual t case Tacoma in 4 high if there is even...
