ive seen it on a few trucks, my opinion for a solution is fuel injection, i will never go back to carbs

you just have to adjust your float level its not hard to get a carb to run on angles if ya know what your doing

Same thing happens to my newly bought carb (stock replacement) and what i did was lowered the float bowl level so that it would not sputter going up steep inclines but if it gets bumpy then it will still sputter if I hit the bumps hard.

i ran a stock carb for two years, used to stand my truck on the rear bumper all the time. just needs to bet set up properly.

like everyone else said the stock toy carb could work great. you probably just need to work it a bit.

Yeah, your stock Toyota carb works great as long as it's been maintained all those years. I have a 78 20R in my truck and the PO's decided to just let things go downhill and now I'm stuck with a POS carb that idles at about 2k (Yes I rebuilt it and it still runs like shit). Realize that you have a 22R and there are some aftermarket carb options out there for you! :)
