Clues, please ...

What are the specifics on your Tacoma? (Year; model; etc.)

Here's a link to Google search results for 8.8 swap threads here on CT:


There are apparently a lot of ins and outs in doing this swap.

The bit that most people complain about is the U-joint connection. The Ford side and the Toyota side aren't readily compatible, and the joint necessary to mate them is a bitch to locate.
