Hey Truckers! In this Semi Truck 101 video, we walk you through the rear suspension and components of your semi truck. And with our walk around we give you some tips on what to look out for and some things you can do if you see a potential problem.

In this video, we used a 2012 Volvo Semi Truck as our model 🙂

Mini Truck mini series, 3 inch lift? 23 inch tires, Test on road off-road HiJet (Part 3)

Mini Truck mini series, 3 inch lift? 23 inch tires, Test on road off-road  HiJet (Part 3)



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
S839 specs:
660cc 4 vavle 3 cyl engine 48-53hp carburated
weight: 1500 lbs
length 10’8″ (128″). width 4’6″ (54″) w/o mirrors. Height 5’10” (70″)
Load capacity 800 lbs
Max Speed 55-60mph

I purchased mine at Boeki USA, www.boekiusa.com has their updated inventory. Ask for Amir and tell them MOTOCHEEZ sent you!

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.

Due to changing products, links, etc, If you want the most recent product links (if these are no good), go to www.motocheez.com and click the section you’re looking for (upper right) and scroll down the page for the item.
This keeps the links for all the parts more accurate. These I use and install on ALL my videos. I do not sell any of the items listed. (except T-shirts and key tags.. so you buy now!)

Jeep Wrangler YJ - Check and torque leaf spring u-bolts



The rear U-Bolts on my Jeep Wrangler YJ became out of proper torque spec. I had to go over all of them again to re-torque them.
