Nepalken,
Welcome onboad. Thanks for all info and pics. We would like to see more of them. Keep posting.

Nepalken,
Hilux old gen were gem of vehicles. They were built to last. I know these vehicles are benchmarked for their durability, reliability and quality

Hello Renegade,

Which Landcruiser do you have and what parts are you looking for? I heard all Landcruiser parts are available in Delhi.

I second that too. Once I rolled the Hilux in mountainous road. One of the rear brake bucket had a tear and once I applied brake, the vehicle skidded in towards the right and hit the slope and it rolled over. If the other side of the brake bucket had given way, then I would have gone down 200-metre-cliff drop. Once the vehicle stopped we got out climbing out of driver window. Villagers came rushing while we were trapped inside. They wanted to smash the windscreen to get the trapped person out but I stopped them as I did not want to break the windshield. Once we all were out via driver seat. The villages rolled over the hilux to get it on its wheel and I drove it back to hopsital where one of my friend suffered a severe cut in finger and broke 2 fingers. Since it happened at night, I was not aware of the damage. In the morning I saw that one side was damaged badly and looked awful. I drove it back to garage another 40 km in hilly road. People would just stare at it, seeing it run it such condition

that Hilux is prepared just to tackle that kind of terrain. looks terrific I must admit. The Polar adventure is one hell of a road trip and in fact, its the 1st trip to the magnetic north pole on a car!!

i never doubt a toyota truck's reliability and its workmanship by Toyota!

my brother had a 4Runner diesel in Afghanistan for 3 years. took him to places far and wide and got him out of difficult situations too!

hey cant we simply buy toyota trucks from nepal and bring them to india?
