    Saw a post on another site showing the wide pocket style fender flares, clicked through to see if I could find the brand.

    From the steep angle of the original picture I saw I thought it was a 2nd gen Tacoma, ended up being a Hilux, still a cool article.

    I really dig the Hilux nose, but think we got the better ass.

    Just wanted to share my pain of not having the D4-D engine option here. :D

    Would love this in America. At least a factory diesel option would be lovely. That truck looks great too.

    I can swap you a d4d in. It aint gonna be cheap but I have done two swaps so far, both still rolling. Swapped a 2.8td into a 93 toyota, and a 93 suzu 3.1td into a 98 isuzu pickup.

    Yes, just due to the sound alone. Every Aussie rig on Youtube sounds better than most full sized diesel trucks here in the states, imo

    I have a whole list of ROTW only toyotas. Do people in Australia wish they had Tacomas?

    Well, i'm living in Norway and own a Hilux, and wish i had a Tacoma (It is possible to import one, but taxes,import-, VAT-fee....the price would be insane!).
    My Hilux build is very much inspired by many of you here on Tacomaworld so thats as close as i get to owning a Tacoma :)

    So we all want what we can’t have. I least we all suffer the same in that respect. Norway is on my list of places to visit in my life, maybe I can rent a Hilux while I’m there!
