    First Name:
    Toyota Tundra D Cab 2wd 2005
    2005 Silver Tundra Pickup
    I just bought an old 2005 Tundra Pickup. it is a 2WD truck with
    VIN 5TBRT34145S458785 . I needed to replace its engine. I ordered an engine from LKQ. they sent me an engine from a 2005 accidented vehicle VIN 5TBBT44125s469453 WHICH WAS A 4WD pickup truck.

    Here is the issue: my mechanic tells me that the original engine in my 2WD truck has 5 outlets plugs of wiring Harnesses , whereas the LKQ supplied engine ( belonging to 4WD truck ) has 6 outlet connectors of wiring Harnesses. 5 would fit but one will remain hanging loose.

    Could some one let me know what possible problem could i face if i use the supplied engine with 6 outlet connectors and leave out one of them? will the engine work for me. I need an expert opinion or share experience if some one had a similar issue. Below is my 2WD vehicle that needs engine and the 4x4 accidented vehicle from which engine is coming from.
