Hello all! I'm a proud owner of a 2003 Daihatsu Hijet Extra S210P. It is the model with 4hi, 4lo, diff lock, a/c and rear box light.
So far I have added a set of blue 300lbs springs, a 2" lift kit, and a set of 23X8-12 Traxion Mini-Truck DOT tires. It rides great but is now a lot louder on the highway due to the aggressive tires.
My future plans are to add a front and rear bumper with 2" receiver. Then wire it up for a 2" receiver mounted winch that I can mount on the front or rear.
I've had a very hard time finding bumpers here in Canada and I think I might be forced to just fabricate my own.
Looking forward to talking with other Hijet owners!
Thanks for the reply. I know that's true for the older models but what about 9th Gen on, ie. from 1999-2007? I haven't seen ANY with that lever. I am looking for a S210P...
Alberto - how do I know which Hijet models have 4hi/4lo? Do they all have it or do some just have regular 4x4 on/off? Thanks!
Those are definitely wise words, it also feels good to be part of making something custom and having things exactly the way you want! Forums like this one really help to share ideas and it gives other people a starting point to come up with even better ideas. (I'll be posting build pics soon!)
Sounds like a nice build! I highly encourage people to look up a good local fabricator and share your vision with them. I think you will be surprised by what they can come up with for a reasonable budget. Even if you do find a bolt on unit more times then not the shipping will be more than the bumper... Better to put that shipping money towards a local design in my opinion 👍
