Plug and play
So I have a samurai buggy. Can I just take the motor, Trans, transfer case, and entire wire harness from Toyota pickup and just throw it in my samurai?. I have no samurai gauges or anything samural in it.

With a good amount of fabrication anything is possible.

It really depends. Carb vs EFI, wiring your gauges you have now, etc. It won't be hard as far as that goes, but not a plug and play. As far as mounts, no. 

With that said, for the work to go into it, I would pick a different engine to use. They are almost all going to weigh more than the Zuk motor, but the reward for the work is much more rewarding IMO.

A newer 2.7 Would be great. If yu use entire wiring harness computer and possibly instrument panel all would be good.
