That is definitely what I should have done originally but I was being cheap and I had the old AWD case sitting there.... I actually used some spacers to keep those two corner bolts.
Now I'm trying to figure out a solution I can do in one day and I don't have my own machine shop or anything.
I'm not sure this is the right forum for this question but I'm hoping somebody can help me out before I screw this up any more. I swapped a 1KZ-TE into my 2001 Taco V6. I kept the automatic transmission that engine came with but I swapped the AWD transfer case for a manual, J-shift...
