Default Does anyone want to export my Toyota 4Runner to Africa?

I have a MiNT 1994 4WD Toyota 4Runner. I just rebuilt the engine. I've worked for Toyota for 25 years. I want to sell it for export. I would do it myself but don't know anyone in the exporting business and have no experience. Anyone interested or can someone give me some advice? Thanks

There is a guy who is a member of The Nigerian Royal Family who would be most interested in helping you make the arrangements to do just that!

With a modest investment, you stand to make a handsome finder's fee . . . . .

"Africa" that's a big place.


in a land where SAS, rear leaf, and diesel rules, truck apps anyway, are you *sure* there's money to be made doing that?

there are those three strikes against it. as a truck app vs whats available down there. IMO.

plus if this has the V6, that's another strike. don't get me wrong. i have a 3VZ-E w/200K miles going strong. but the exhaust cross over, the cost of maint(timing gear/water pump) and weight vs torque/hp, cheaper to have a diesel down there.

the V6 cross over pipe cooks valve guide seals back there as well as hoses. used in 4x4L routinely. i've louvered my hood near the fire wall to help alleviate that issue.

the 22R or RE has a torque issue @ speed. especially noticeable when equipted with the auto trans. continually down shifting. so as a *work horse* it's limited to low rpms and 4x4 mode.

all but the richest will likely opt for any diesel options. as work per hour, per cost, fully loaded, is better with the diesel than most any petrol config. in this weight class anyway. more noticeable in heavier weight classes.



IDK what you did for toy, but giving you the benifit of the doubt, you prolly know all that i mentioned and know (better than i) that there is *maybe* a niche to fill with this out of place config. might command a worth while investment? maybe you're targeting the big inner city markets?


old fart,

owner 92 hilux 3VZ-E, 86 hilux-SAS conversion, 22/20R short deck hybrid. both lifted. but the 86 is a crawler/water baby. 92 is my daily driver here in the mountains.
