I don't ever haul any trailers with my truck, but I do load up with mulch, compost, etc at the landscape supply, which is at least 800-1000lbs in the bed. Handles it great, it does drop down an inch...

Curious about your height measurements with your worn out leaf springs.

You could, but if it's 2wd I believe you're swapping to a 7.5" 5-lug with 55" WMS width.

As you’re seeing there’s not a lot of info out there for the pre-pickup Hilux trucks but since nobody’s mentioned it yet, your truck has an 8” differential not a 7.5”. At least my 75 Hilux and many...

I'm sure there are many out there but just doesn't seem to be much documentation on engine swaps for these older generation Hilux trucks. I've been looking, I have a 75 too.

Pretty cool job you've got.

After seeing the Top Gear Hilux treatment years ago I'd imagine that if it were a real explosion the truck could likely still be driven afterward, lol.
