3UR-FE V8 in 3rd Gen 4Runner?

Since I love the 3rd gen 4Runner so much, I've started my mind on the next level. I'd hoped Toyota would produce something I'd like enough to replace it, but so far no dice and it's only getting worse it seems.

SO, has anyone looked into the possibility of swapping in a 3UR-FE 5.7L V8 from a Tundra?

The other V8s that are offered in previous years wouldn't be worth it for me since my supercharged 3.4L puts out more power than those do. I'm at about 300HP and 310 TQ right now.

However, the 5.7L would be a bit of an upgrade, and then I'd have the option of the TRD supercharger on top of that if it wasn't enough.

Anybody even thought about this?

I assume I'd need the motor, transfer case, and transmission from the donor, plus maybe the rear axle?
