    I was thinking about doing a sas on my 89 toyota and a v8 swap also but then got a idea after i talked to oager about his yellow toyota and found out it was a 92 yota on a chevy 1/2 ton frame. how hard would it b to put my 89 yota on a 1/2 chevy frame with soild axles, either a 87 or later truck or 91 or later burban/blazer. what would i have to do to make it work? it would it b easier and less expensive then to do everything to the yota?

    chevy frames are complete crap. LOTS of frame flex. Not as strong as a yota frame.



    Plus, I doubt it will be any less work as there is a good chance you will have to move the chevy engine/trans/tc to fit on the yota body.

    I woulden't say total crap...i mean if he has the frame down to the point of no body woulden't be hard to box sections of it in and cross brace it a lil bit to nake it more rigid.....plus the lift's for them old chevy frames are really cheap....cheapest on the marker i know that much.... :bigthumb:
