Toyota truck transmission identification

Toyota manual transmissions for rear wheel drive applications are made by Aisin and similar (but not identical) to the AX series used by Dodge & Jeep and AR5 used by GM & Isuzu.  The Toyota models in particular are specialized; virtually every model is unique and many have sub-variants tailored to specific vehicles or driveline configurations.

Otherwise, refer to the shifters page for your particular model.

Beyond short throw shifters, we also offer stock shifter rebuild bushings, and classic engraved knobs for stock shifters.
