I like the color!I've had a bit of an issue w/ the throttle. The throttle would go to what seemed like throttle, but if I pushed the pedal any further would go to idle. I was thinking this was fail safe mode, but fail safe requires the user to turn of the car and turn it back on to unlatch the fault. Mine, you can just reset by releasing the pedal to zero and resuming. In any case - I tried a new throttle body and accel pedal position sensor. Same issue with each. So I just inspected the new TB w/ the aid of a brick to see how far open it would go. Its going to 100% WOT. So I'll make an adjustable mechanical stop on the pedal to keep it from over running WOT. Figured future 2uz swappers might want to know about that issue.
I also sanded the old finish, fixed a few dents, primed, sanded and repainted. I went w/ an industrial paint called IMRON 3.5 HG+. Its a single stage paint and it's supposed to be real tough. It was quite a bit cheaper than going w/ a traditional base/clear combo. Got a bit of paint on the tire threads, but that should come off in a few wheeling trips I think.

Thanks!Fantastic write up, thanks. I do believe you will never misplace your truck.
Thanks for al the great photos, the engine looks right at home in there, and your exhaust is monumental! I hope you can post a photo of the exhaust from the under side to show the way you routed it all.
