Hilix 1993 Double cab 2.4L 2L engine with an aftermarket Garrett turbo with custom intercooler. Turbo was installed years ago by former owner. Engine is tuned to low boost and low fuel. This install was done conservatively and by a professional. It is a common and safe install. The difference in performance is very obvious over normal 2L and makes the vehicle very user friendly with a "modern" feel. MPG is still in the 20-32 range on average roads.
Suspension is upgraded to a 2.75 in lift with heavy duty spring set up. Again professionally installed. Has rear work light, forward Hellas and 8000lbs T-Max winch with wire rope. Front bumper is a well made unit of unknown manufacturer. Rear bumper and rock sliders are ARB units. It has a duel battery set up. Custom roof rack is well anchored and designed, and has a rear upright unit to allow for carry of long cargo such as kayaks or such.
Pickup bed could use a spay on liner. It also has a full rubber canvas cover, that is usable, but will need fixing or replacing soon.
This truck drives VERY well on local roads or highway. On 8% to 10% slopes at 50 mph in 5th gear the truck will gain speed if stepped on (without any smoke of any color/kind). Frame is 100% rust free as is the body. Hood looks as if it has had a respray that is not up to the modifications on the rest of the vehicle, but ti certainly more than passable.
Truck was imported from Netherlands 100% legally. Truck has a clear legal CT title. I have owner and driven many Hilux, this model and year is one of the best and this particular one is the best I have come across. I imported to use in a 4x4 driving school, but I believe this truck is better suited to someone to really use it for their own adventure - honestly I did not have the heart to subject this truck to the rigors of 4x4 training. In additio, our fleet plans have changed and we will be buying newer model Hilux instead of these solid axle Hilux (yes we know these are better, but they are not as common now and we need to train with current models).

This is a very tight very drivable 4dr Hilux for everyday use, commuting, or hopefully adventuring where there is no cell reception. I would not hesitate to drive this around the world as it is now. For those that know, the LN105/106 is the best Hilux ever made and the last model configuration with solid front and rear axles. While everyone says this in ads selling vehicles, these are exceedingly rare in USA (perhaps 6 of them and I own 4 of those 6). Most of these are sold to go to Africa and the Middle East and they command high prices globally and are very hard to find anywhere in the world (especially in this good condition), not to mention impossible to find in the USA legally with clear titles.
The professional modifications both on engine and to suspension/body are very well done with a mind to longevity and reliability (in other words this is not hack job for power and stupid wheeling, but instead for improvement of safe usability .... i.e. this was a adult job for practical real reasons.)
