    So, I'm searching worldwide for the right 1HZ Troopy (or possibly a cab and chassis that I can build a camper for) to import into Canada. It must be 15 years old to import into Canada, so currently that would mean a manufacture date of 01/04. I would prefer it already had a pop-up roof because...

    What should be checked on an import 1hdt or 1hdft from Japan ?

    Import 1hdt and 1hdft motors are very common here in Australia to update from 1hz's.

Current prices are about A$8k for an import 1hdt and A$11k for an...

    Maybe(probably) stupid question 93 FJ70

    Hola y’all, quick question. Am I going to have a problem importing a 1993 FJ 70? Does month of manufacture matter? And if so how can I find that information? I don’t think that is included in VIN or title. Thanks amigos.

    How is it holding up? It's 2018 now so I expect to start seeing 1993 models rolling into the states. For those of you who imported from Japan, Canada, or elsewhere - have you run into any big issues with repairs or finding parts? Most of the threads from owners a couple years ago seemed to...

    Is there an import to USA thread with costs?

    If not, any interest in one? I see 1990-92 diesel cruisers for sale in the $15-20k range here in the US or in Canada and have always wondered what it would take to get one over here from Japan directly. My limited initial research indicates that these might be overpriced but I want to make sure...
