wasn't expecting it to be a 4 speed. Wonder how it drives on the highway. but it looks really good.

loud at 70 mph I'd guess.

Donno, 5 to 8 K depending on how well things were done.

I dont know if the 91 is a good engine or not. I think the late 90's engines were the hot ones.

But If it is an all aluminum LT5 engine, I'd pay 12K for something like that. But it should have a 5 speed.
or auto trans.

I can tell from experience, 70 on the highway is loud and not the most comfortable speed with a 4 speed and V8. I find myself wishing for overdrive.

It does have a AA overdrive, but I have never been a fan of them.

It sounds like it has the overdrive adapter. Honestly it would be better with the GM auto 4l60e/700r4 or Manual GM NV4500 or even h55f but its better than just the stock 4spd. I would say anywhere from 7-12k depending if it is smog legal and all the loose ends of the swap are tied up. FJ60s are pretty common so the v8 will most likely boost the value a bit. The only all original ones worth more are extremely low mile, perfect paint/interior. Pretty much unless it looks like it just rolled off the factory floor its not going to be worth more than something tastefully modified.

That engine was done properly...looks really nice and detail oriented. Take the silly nerfs and rear tail light damage multipliers off and add sliders and that's a 10K truck. (If the rear wheel wells are rust free)
