Ok, I drive a 1990 Toyota pick-up ext. cab. It's automatic with the 22re motor.

Question 1. I have recently changed the spark plugs, wires distributer cap, and air filter. New tires that are at their proper air pressure, and new brakes that aren't ceased on anymore (oops). Now the problem is that it seems like it is really hard on gas. I can go for a drive for 10 hours and it will cost me $100 (CDN in liters) and my friend can do that on just $26 (CDN and in liters) Does anybody have any idea what the cause of this problem is?

Question 2. I know it would be alot of work, but I wanted to know if it would be possible to put a 4 runner body on the pickup's frame. I really want the removable top for my truck with the seating capacity, but I figure it would be too costly to lower the 4 runner to the ground. Would it be cheaper to lower the 4runner to the ground without using airbags, or to put the body of the 4 runner on the frame for my truck. If the body won't fit on my trucks frame, is there a frame from another toyota pickup that it would fit on?

Any advice helps, thanks alot.

1. check your fuel filter and clean your throttle body

2. if you want a 4 runner, sell your truck and buy one. its gonna be alot easier to sell and buy, then swap. if im not mistakin, the lengths of the frames aren't the same either.

3. forget the idea of looking for a different frame. just buy a 4 runner.

Yeah I'd go out a good tune-up!
Also forget about trying the 4 runner on top of your frame, its quite possible, but would cost you a bunch of $$$$
Yota right, seel the truck and buy a 4-runner!
