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

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.
