I got this from Toyota Australia when I was looking for specs on my full float axle. It is a brochure for the 1988 model year. Pretty interesting to see all the great stuff we couldn't get on 60's in the states.

Don't forget the weights are listed in kilos (multiply by 2.2 for lbs)

I was adding photo's to my skidplate thread and saw that you could now add pdf's and a couple of other things that I have no idea what they are. It's right where you add jpgs. It has to be new because I don't think it was there a couple of days ago.

I still want a set of morgue doors...

WOW...And what are who stopped the USA from getting all the good stuff?
Funny that some of the stuff we want was considered the lower grade option, ie bench seats, vinyl floors, barn doors.

Toyota saw the US market as luxury only not a utility vehicle, and it was hard to sell a diesel here at the time. So... we got only the options that were good for on-road. No lockers needed, no full float axles, no diesels, bucket seats only, no extra row seating, rear hatch instead of barn doors, etc.
