So even though the trekker I recently picked up has a new crate motor with only about 10k on the clock it has a pretty bad exhaust leak and of course it is carburated... I've been doing lots of research on what it takes to convert to EFI. Turns out, it's not as easy as I thought and you really need to have a good running 22re truck/4runner. . From there I would basically have to switch the motors along with wiring and everything else. Then try to sell an original EFI trick as a carb'd one. All this for about 15 hp and EFI. Not worth it in my opinion... So here is option number 2
It's a 1995, 180k on the odo, 5 speed and it's been rolled. .. The previous owner drove it of the road on a snowy night.. shut the car off, got out to inspect the vehicle for problems and then watched it slide down the hill to the bottom and lay over in the ditch. Most of the damage was caused by the tow truck rolling it back over. The nice thing about this truck is the price. 600 bucks. It's got brand new 33x12.5 Goodyear Kevlar mtrs. 4.88 gears, sliders and a 3 in lift. I've had it for about 3 days and have sold the sliders and rear lift for 400. I'll be keeping the tires and the rear 3rd member for the trekker. Oh and one other thing. . The previous owner swapped a 3.4 into this thing. Which will be perfect for the trekker. 3rd gen motor, 2nd gen 5speed and then I'll run dual gear given t cases with stock ratios.
So I finally got started on the disassembly today. Got the driveshafts pulled,transmission, transfer case,motor pulled. Took the fenders and doors off, seats out, front bumper off. And some other small things.

Under the carpet in found this. On both sides. It's not to bad but somebody else knew about it at one point. It looks to me like the tried to cut the rust out at one point, then failed to do anything about it and it started again. Well I shouldn't say they didn't do anything. They packed a bunch of cigarette cartons in the hole and covered it with a shingle
