Saw these on another Forum. Thought you might be interested.

The photos were taken at a Middle East Toyota dealership.

First the dual cab:

Note the vertical split rear door on the tray.

Next we have the six wheeler. Probably a lazy axle, but think of the canopy you could put on it !!

Now for all you pocket rocket revheads. How about a short wheel base with the Turbo Diesel V8.

I notice there is no slot in the bonnet.
Perhaps not intercooled for that market (or a vertical behind the grill which makes more sense)

Furph, the intake slot is covered in a plastic sheet used for transit protection.

I hope so mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm That dualcab looks alright and if the 6 wheeler was actually 6x6 then I can imagine the fun you could have kitting it out into a great touring Truck.


Cheers Kev

Just expanded the picture of the 6 wheeler, it appears to have a diff at the rear set of wheels (if it was a lazy then this is where it would be... I assume), so based on this it probably is a 6wd.

Rod W, I don't know the significance of this but the middle wheels don't seem to have the same centre hub as the rear......

Just re-checked the picture and there's not diff hub coming through the centre of the first wheel so maybe it ain't a 6wd.

I think it's only a 6 x 4, centre axle has has a different bearing cap and appears not to have a "driving" axle thru the center of the wheel.

GEEEZ I'd love to grab hold of one of them shorty's with a T/D V8,
WHY DID YOU SHOW ME THIS, WHHYYY?????

The dual cab looks like a pretty hurried parts bin job.

How many panels from other models can you indenify?
Well there's those rear "doors" for a start.

Also kind of wonder about the wisdom and practicality of a non seperate tray/tub.

Interesting pics though!!

Not to mention the departure angle, the average sydney speedhump would have that back bar ground down in no time.

If that SWB version was sold in australia, Id seriously have to consider selling my hilux for one of them....

think of it, 4" lift, 35" tyres, factory diff locks....no airbags so custom front tube bar, the approach and departure angles would be awesome, and if you need more luggage space just get a trailer.

would have to be a good 5 grand cheaper than the 70 wagon.
