I had a 1987 factory turbo truck. They weren't called a hilux. Just a truck lol. Parts for them can be found on eBay. I wish I still had my lil truck. They can be quite expensive once the turbo goes and you have to get an engine rebuild.

Hehe just looked it up. Hilux name was dropped in north america and just called Toyota Pickup according to Wikipedia. Says people just kept calling them Hilux even though Toyota didn't. Mine was a rust brown color with manual locking hubs, 3 inch lift, 31 x 10.5s, camper top. Miss it a lot actually
