This is quite interesting. I find it strange that there has been no pictures surface of the OEM GPS, no comment from someone that has it fitted to their vehicle. It appears that it was only available in the Australian market from 9208-9608. Could it be that no one (or very few) chose the option...
Try and get the RH rear interior trim panel from the donor vehicle if you can, as those fitted to vehicles with rear A/C incorporate a large air intake 'grille' to supply the rear blower - as seen in these pictures of a NZ spec HDJ80.
Also i think theres two different rear overhead control...
Some markets had factory seat heaters. When fitted the OEM switch was located in the center console, in place of the coin holders.
This link shows them as switch position # 12 (code 84751)
I haven't seen this picture posted up on Mud, so i thought I would share :hillbilly:
I'm not 100% sure on what market its from, but I think it's a Euro VX...
1HD-FT with EGR, H151F, 24 volt, 3rd row seats, LHD???
Would be fun putting it back together. Whats this pile of nuts...
The 'CDS FAN' stands for 'Condenser Fan'. Its an auxiliary fan mounted in front of the Air Conditioning Condenser on the right hand side.
In some countries 80's came factory fitted with Rear A/C or Centre Console Fridge/Cooler or both.
Im not sure if all the countries that had these options...
I just had a quick look at the EPC. It looks as though those parts are available seperately. Unless im looking at the wrong parts that is.
88522-60010 Door, Cooling Unit
88899-90A01 Case, Ice
To suit 9001-9801 81's
:eek: Damn thats nice, i like it... Bad case of 80's envy :crybaby:
Its a '99 but it has the -T O Y O T A- badged grille instead of the 'Sombrero' style, has it had a grille swap, or is that how the later model Venezuelan 80's came??
Ive wondered this myself. All the JDM's ive seen have had these clips, but they always been missing whatever was 'meant' to be there. My BJ61 has the same clips fitted.
I thought it was maybe for an emergency flare.
Someone will know for sure.
Mot, i see what you mean about the sliding rear windows on the HDJ's - i havent noticed that before. The only two 'Active' models that ive seen interior shots of both had diff locks, i wonder if that was part of the package as well.
Heres a late model HDJ81. Im not sure which this version is. They pop up for sale now and then. The Active Vacation 80's ive seen usually have the tailgate mounted ladder as well as interior curtains.
You also see the 'camping kits' for sale on their own after they have been removed from the...
I agree, they dont look as good without the flares, but it did start to grow on me. I think if i got one without i wouldnt go to the trouble of fitting them.
BTW, these havent been removed, this is how the low spec models come in various markets. Were any lower spec 80's sold in the states...
No worries. I forgot to add this bumper is off a JDM import ( as far as i know Kiwi new cruisers were never available with the winch). Im not sure of the exact year, but im led to believe its off a '90-'94.
