Engine Swap

I was thinking about doing a full engine/drivetrain swap into my 77 FJ40. I was thinking about swapping in a Toyota 3.4 V6 engine and auto tranny. What would I need to complete the swap? I have a good lead on the engine/tranny/tcase. Engine is pretty much complete. Firt engine swap I'm trying so I really don't know what other items I might need. I'm assuming the main computer and the computer for the tranny (it it's seperate like my 22RE's auto. What else should I be looking for to complete the swap?

Personally I would look in to a small block chevy th350/205or203 combo! stronger, cheaper, and a lot less headach's
The cool factor of the 3.4 vs strength and reliability of a 4.3 or a small block chevy!
just my $.02
when in doubt step away from the POS... turn on the simpsons and fire up the bong!!!

For the 3.4 you'll need the enitre wiring harness. Would really help to have the donor truck. Gonna be a pain in the ass for a motor thats not all that powerful.
