Sorry, the 22R was the only engine available in those trucks. Depending on your level of motivation and wallet, you can fit a V8 in there or an inline-6 out of a Supra. Your G-series transmission would probably not last very long though.
The stock axles will last with more power as long as you're not doing burnouts from gravel onto pavement. I have an '81 dually 2wd with a 350, and the diff holds up fine.

Did you re-gear for the 36"s ?

If not it will get your lost power back.

I haven't noticed much power loss....but I don't get the truck over 20mph so....it does alot better now with the bigger tires....and now that I have the rear end welded...the truck will go through most of the mud in 2WD now....just was thinking about maybe going a little bigger with the motor just because.....not because of any power loss....and sorry didn't answer your question....I didn't re-gear.....but not saying that I want in the future.
