*Milwaukee M12 3/8” Cordless Ratchet – (Helps a lot to speed up the removal of fasteners)

*Harbor Freight 2 Ton Engine Hoist – (Used to lift motor out of engine compartment)

Great job on this series, guys. I am using it to prepare for a swap in the near future. Thanks!

Austin Park says:

Hi Timmy. I have a 97 4Runner and wanted know if you could do a video of all the grease points that I should be concerned about. Appreciate it!

Justin Barilar says:

Installed my rebuilt 22RE from Yota1 in June of 2020 in my 1985 4Runner. Great company to work with, 10k trouble free miles thus far! This video would have helped me a lot last year but really glad someone is doing a soup-to-nuts 22RE swap video. The cell phone videos from circa 2005 don't really cut it! Thanks Tim and Yota1!
