    my little brother is looking for a small 5 speed utility truck. He is either looking in a early 90's Nissan or Toyota.


    any hard trucks on either? I hear both are reliable are hell.

    maybe I'm confused. I thought SR22 is the engine code for the Toyta pickup trucks.

    Toyota = unlimited reliability
    Nissan = somewhat unlimited

    Toyota used the 22R/22RE up until 95 I think. I have a 22R in my truck, and I swear this motor is indistructable. The Toyota R series motors have a reputation of running forever (also used in older Celicas). The KA24DE in my Altima seemed to be a good motor though, guess it's a toss up - but for a truck, I'd definitely go Toyota.

    I have a 87 Toyota Pickup with a carbed 22R. The fucker has 274,000 miles on it and although leaks a little oil from the valve cover (they all do) it runs like a champ. :bigthumb:

    except its fucking slow compared to my 5.0 :o

    The 22R responds EXTREMELY well to mods. I put a dual 38mm Weber carb and an RV cam on mine - night and day difference. I almost made a guy shit himself when I beat him in the 1/4 mile at the local track - he was sportin a Ford truck w/ a 351. My next mod will be a header - should really open things up

    You may be able to find some parts cheaper elsewhere, but their customer service is 2nd to none.

    The 22R is BY FAR the easiest motor I've ever had to work on too (and that's saying a lot, since I'm not particularly mechanically inclined). Very simple, yet effective design. I had the top end rebuilt for about 400 (including the RV cam, which was about $100 on it's own). The carb ran me about $400 (kinda high, have seen it for about $100 less elsewhere since I made the purchase).

    I actually agree :o
    I'd take a Nissan truck and I'd love it.
    But. . tacoma's my personal fav.

    edit: I preferred the old square hard body Nissan trucks the best. :yum:
