    2008 Tundra buggie
    I am in the process of building a Tundra based 4x4 buggie for 3 passengers. I have all the mechanical parts (Engine, transmission, axles, front suspension, etc) from a 2008 4x4 tundra. I am missing the ECU and all eletronic components. Rear suspension will be similar to my 96 Tacoma with links (attached picture). I still have to decide how to handle the electronics. Probably the hardest part will be to have the automatic transmission talk to the engine. Any suggestions are welcome. Any idea where could I get the Tundra service manuals at a reasonable price?
    thanks
    Juan

    Welcome from CO. @ColoradoTJ should be able to help you , Jeeps but same difference, I'm thinking with the complexities of truly serious modding. I have the complete 2nd gen service manuals (about 11,000 pages plus) on my work computer. Guess it's time to put it on a thumb drive. How to get it to you?? I'm open for suggestions...

    Do you know the size of the file to check if you can upload it online to a specific webpage?
