My original specification (OE) Toyota 4Runner 3.0 TD deep in the mud in Leeds.


Toyota 4Runner GX, circa 1994. The body is a: KZN130 Series [ RM158E ]and the engine is a 1KZ-T, 3.0L OHC Turbo Diesel, and the engine repair manual [ RM353E ] says it was also originally spec. for a Land Cruiser KZJ70, 73 & 77 Series. A problem was finding the correct Toyota manuals for this vehicle and the number and expense of them. Electric manuals: [ EWD115F, EWD140F, EWD194F ] were all required to cover all revisions.

As you can see there isn't an awful lot of difference in the specs.
considering nearly ten years R & D time.

Now I've had a lot of trouble finding out details for this vehicle as there aren't a great many about in the UK (Parkers spec or Difflock.com) But the 4Runner is alive and well in the US, Kenya and in Australia and although the other versions are a bit different (Hilux Surf) I do have some valuable facts and figures (US spec). My main concern was Gross Vehicle Weight and Kerb Weights, ie: how much stuff could I carry!

From the VIN plate on the bulkhead I see I have a GVM of 2510 kg and a towing weight of 2200kg but there is no kerb weight mentioned. Toyota (UK) say UK spec vehicles had a NVM of 1900 kg thereby giving me a payload of 610 kg. Not a lot! But by judicious stripping out of the vehicles interior, seats etc I hope to gain some slack (which, no doubt, I'll lose again with items like bullbars etc!).

NB: When we drove from Bulawayo to Nairobi we stopped at a weigh station to check our vehicle's weight. It topped out at 2900kg! This included two adults, a child, all our kit and all my wife's shoes. With the HD suspension the vehicle accomdated this large, 1000 kg, payload but I think that it may contributed to the early failure of my front OME shocks.
