Actually, the ones in the UK are second hand imports from Japan. I just don't know if they made any modifications.

What year model is your truck? There are also prados in there using the same engine (1KZ-TE). Europe already has the low-sulfur diesel so I'm sure emissions won't be a problem with the KZN185 (assuming that the engine is still in good condition). Brakes shouldn't be a problem either. You might like to check into the safety belts, srs air bags. Also, it would help if you can check out the host country's requirements. I believe that those info are available in the internet.
