    IMG_0050 (1).jpg Finding parts for this Diahatsu made Toyota isn't easy
    replaced wheel bearings, universal joints,
    trying to find hub boot
    does anyone know if the older Toyota's parts would fit this

    Also, two suggestions.

    1. Post this up in the diesel section. I did a quick search and the Blizzard has been discussed.
    2. If you have the VIN Toyota will support this vehicle ... assuming parts are still available. But your local dealer will probably blow you off. Talk to @beno (Onur) here on MUD. He loves finding parts for $hit like this.

    I'm new to this site but I just bought a 1987 Blizzard a few months back. One of my biggest concerns besides I love the dang thang is finding parts when I need them.

    I got lucky it is almost like original when it was shipped from Japan. The guy I bought it from shipped over here.
    I have his paper work and all. I have to drive it dayly it's my only car. I'm not much of a mechanic. I couldn't begin
    To take on a rebuild like the one your getting ready for. Good luck if I come across anything I will let you know.

    I love driving the thing. It’s not for the highway makes for a long trip. City driving is fine and off road has no limits.
