Hey! Your project looks about the same as the one i'm working on! Except.... i've had to officially give up on mine  :'(. Too many complications, with the most recent being the owner where i work tired of looking at it for the last 6 years. So it got towed out of there. That was about three weeks ago. The project was not technically even my own vehicle... hopefully you can keep yours alive, Cebby!

.....and reading through the thread... i obviously never moved out of california, either. But- Mikronized did move over there. He's in Philly somewhere! This whole thing was his project.

First off, sad to say that there's no new tech here.

This project has been permanently shelved.  I started back on this and the rust on the 4Runner was too severe (body AND frame) to warrant throwing any money at it.  Sitting in my yard for a couple of years pushed the 4Runner into the not worth saving category.  It spent 12 years on the road in the rust belt and a couple sitting out (was never garaged when it was operable either so that didn't help).  It's gone now - all the good stuff stripped off.

Like a lot of projects, started off with good intentions and a decent plan but life got in the way.  I've restored all the pics I could find (almost all of them), but there won't be any new tech added to this unless something crazy happens.

I have another (non-Toyota) project waiting in the wings, so an additional part of the demise of the UZ swap was having 2 inoperable vehicles on my property.  The Mrs wasn't standing for it...

In the end, I finally got a running Toyota V8 after all - in the form of a Sequoia family hauler.
