Never mind... 95, right?

Thats a 3.0 V6... its kind of a crappy motor.

Its a 12 valve SOHC. So, first, there are no cam bearings. The cam rides on the aluminum head itself, so if it got scored, its trash.

Second, Toyota 3.0s and early 3.4 have a lot of head problems. The like to blow head gaskets.

The engine is pretty weak for the weight of that truck. About 160 hp, but no where near the torque of a 4.0 Jeep.

If you buy it, I'd plan on getting a new head for sure. Never know what else is an issue with a motor like that..
