That looks entirely too clean Dave. Y'all need to do something about that.

Nowhere near as cool as a Pinz but better suited for my small property... my own little utility vehicle...




6 inch suspension lift, 28 inch tires, A/C, heat, power steering, fuel injected, 660cc 3cyl.

Thanks Rob!
Its a Daihatsu. Right hand drive, not street legal here. Engine pulls great, they are geared crazy low and the taller tires actually made it a little more drivable. You were coming out of first as soon as you let out the clutch in stock form. I just use it around the property for hauling, towing spray rig and some fun.

Looks like a cool toy.
We took the Pinz to Road Atlanta and used it as a track taxi. It sure beat dragging everything in on foot.

Those Daihatsu's as well as their Honda,Suzuki,Mazda brethren are normal fare over here.
I Have never seen one done up like that though.
Where did you get the parts?

I think if I was to take the van version of one it would be great for camping

By the way those extended cab versions are very hard to find used evryone wants one.

Thanks! The Jumbos are rare here too. I paid a premium for the extra room and the nice cold A/C.
I built all the lift myself, re-drilled a set ATV wheels to fit. I've seen pics of the little vans, would love to lift one of those too!
