This page is dedicated to the Daihatsu Hijet Mini_truck and other Mini JDM Japanese import cabover trucks. . It is purely my opinion based on my experiences.
Researching online I did find l lot of information, but Amir explains a LOT more than I knew, he has been in the business for 15 years. Plus if Bubbles in Trailer Park Boys has one, it HAS to be cool!
I bought my mini from Boekiusa.com, Don't forget you're buying a used vehicle, check it all out, they're over 25 years old! Some are in much better shape than others. Check for leaks, CV boots ripped, Loose suspension, Clutch slippage, clunks etc. Just like any used vehicle
