    Im in Tokyo right now and Im going to be here for a few more days, Does anyone know where I could get some really good deals on OEM/Aftermarket parts or tools or just anything really cool for Tacos or anything.

    Also I think I found the Toyota tower in Tokyo but Im not sure if they sell anything from there.

    If there is any place that has a smoking deal on a supercharger that would be nice also.

    Thanks

    Edit: Didn't know what I was talking about...happens often. :p

    Let me know if you find a supercharger for cheap! I might send you money to bring one back to SD with you! :D

    from what my japanese friend just told me, it's gonna be pretty expensive in japan too, less it's like you said, just some logo or something, then just hit up a local car shop for those

    Tacos are only sold in North America AFAIK, so parts and stuff won't be readily available in Japan.

    The reason why I took my comment back earlier is because after some research, it seems that the Tacoma is actually sold in Japan and North America. Everybody else gets the Hilux.

    Am I wrong?

    AFAIK NA is the only place that gets the Tacoma. If I lived in Japan and could purchase a Hilux or Land Cruiser Troopy I be dammed if I buy a Tacoma.

    Most likely you won't in Tokyo, although I did see a pretty cool older Jeep. I remember seeing lots of taxis and small boxy scion looking cars. From what I was told, owning a car there is very expensive. I think you may have to pay an extra tax if you own a car.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.


    Yes, Tacomas are only sold in the United States, Canada, and possibly the northern parts of Mexico (or all of it, not too sure).


    Everybody else gets the Hilux. I'm pretty sure Tacomas are not sold in Japan.


    Mexico gets both the Hilux, and the Tacoma. The Hilux is more popular though.




    Looks like Mitsubishi?
