Welcome! I’m an over the road truck driver that hauls over night freight from Chicago to Kansas City and back. It is a boring job so I figured I would share some of the drive. Have a suggestion? Leave it in the comments!
Here we offer a sneak peek at our May special offered by our Volvo/Mack Service Department. If your Air Drier filter isn’t serviced regularly, it will cause aftertreatment issues. We will have you checked in within the hour with our Uptime Process.
I have finally learned enough! Year after Year, I tried to fix this truck. But to no avail. Today, it comes to life in all of its original, intended glory! This is a great day for me, as everything has finally come together after a long, and arduous journey. This is my Scania R620 Tow Truck. I have done many videos about this truck over the years.. but a lot of them have been discussing a problem that I was finally able to solve today. I am elated!
The issue was my hydraulic pump was causing a “battle switch” (from dimension engineering), to cut in and out for apparently no reason. As you can see from this video this truck is certainly one of the most complicated electric issues I could face in this crazy mess of wires.
Since then, I have torn this truck down a few times in hopes of understanding how the entire truck works.. and now, I defiantly get it! I have been wanting to repair this truck specifically for another show we produce on our second channel. The show is called “Loading Wars”.. and its an RC Game Show that we created that uses semi trucks, forklifts, and a myriad of other warehouse machines. Its basically Everything you were taught at work NOT to do, we DO in miniature! hah .. here is a link:
You will see MORE of this truck in upcoming episodes ! Thank you for checking out my “micro mechanics” video.. haha!
Lift install is at 2:10 mark
Tire road test is at 7:30 mark
tire off-road test at 13:56 mark
Against everything I read on the internet, I decided to TRY and install a 3” lift. Although I COULD have gotten it in there, if the strut extended all the way while offroading it would ABSOLUTELY break an axle. DO NOT DO 3” LIFT. So I took that off and just put the 23” aggressive mud tires, no lift needed YET and I ordered another lift that is 2”. hoping to get this up to a side by side SXS UTV status!
I do a test of the new tires, offroad, rock climb articulation, hill climb, mountain and mud. Does really good!
I ordered a CV boot too, mine was ripped so I showed my way of making it hold dirt out a little longer…
Dihatzu Hijet (translates to midget in Japanese) Climber Mini-truck, this one is a 1992, 7th Gen, S83P, 660cc Minitruck. The “climber” means it has rear axle lock. Amir has about 60 units in stock, he was very helpful.
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!
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

I know there may be other videos of this.. but this is my Cheezy style!
More info (Wikipedia):
The Daihatsu Hijet (Japanese: ダイハツハイゼット) is a cabover microvan and pickup truck produced and sold by the Japanese automaker Daihatsu since 1960. Despite the similarities between the Hijet name and Toyota’s naming scheme for its trucks and vans (Hiace and Hilux), the name “Hijet” has been in use for Daihatsu’s Kei trucks and Microvans since 1960, over two decades before Toyota took control. “Hijet”, when transliterated into Japanese, is very similar to “Midget”, one of Daihatsu’s other mini-trucks. The Hijet competes in Japan with the Honda Acty, Subaru Sambar, Mitsubishi Minicab, Suzuki Carry and the Nissan Clipper.
