How old is the Hilux?
If it is pre-1995...you have a good chance. As the Hilux was essentially the same vehicle sold in North America as the Toyota pickup.

Post 1995, the PickUp was replaced with a Tacoma which does share a resemblance with the current Hilux but not as much as it used to.


One thing to do is compare parts similarities by using online tools such as this...
Conicelli Parts Center

This is where I go for Genuine Toyota parts. Look up similar parts for your Hilux under here, using the North American name of Tacoma or Pickup.
Hope that helps.

Simon,

I would say it depends on what motor you have. If you're running a diesel, then finding parts in N. America may be more difficult. If you're running one of the petrol motors like the 2.7 I4 or 3.4 V6, then you shouldn't have any problems. Suspension & drivetrain on Tacoma's/Hilux's etc is all the same on the front end. I've found few differences between 95+ Tacoma's and Hilux's other than minor body design and the obvious diesel motor choice.

Enjoy your trip!

David
