93 Hilux 4x4 Tanzania Africa Overland Vehicle Sale

We are leaving Tanzania and selling our much loved 1993 Toyota Hilux Utility / Pickup Truck. We have owned this car for the past 12 years and imported it from Australia in 2014. The car was completely unused / in storage for 5 years (12/08 - 02/14). The engine has recently (09/15) been fully rebuilt, making it essentially as good as new, ready for the next 10 - 20 years (250,000km - 500,000km). New radiator was installed in 03/15. The car is extremely well maintained and in excellent running condition.

This car is a highly capable offroader, well suited for overland tours and safaris in Africa (equipped with necessary tools, camping and recovery gear). The commercial Hilux (not Surf) is often used in competition 4x4, suitable (unmodified / from stock) for basic rock crawling (high ground clearance with a good approach angle), and has very good traction in mud and sand (Kumho MT). Besides the fun stuff, the Hilux is also a solid workhorse for hauling your everyday payload needs (approx. 1.3 Tonne). The custom built tray cage is lockable and the roof rack can accommodate oversize cargo (detachable rails). The tray / tub has wooden storage / drawer system, with a flat surface suitable for sleeping on.

Though it may lack some comfort and speed compared to newer 4WDs, this 5th generation Hilux (88-97) enjoys a reputation of being the most reliable and toughest (near indestructible) car ever made. Further, given its simplistic design and lack of electronics, getting repairs done (especially when in remote locations) is a lot easier and cheaper. Also, due to Hilux’s popularity in harsh driving environments, getting spare parts has always been straightforward in Dar.

Details Overview:
Model LN106, 2.8L diesel, Dual / Crew Cab (4 door), 67 kW (91 PS; 90 hp), manual transmission
Only 1 previous owner. Car was in storage / unused 2009 - 2014. Mileage: 260,000km
Registered in Dar: 31/01/2014 - Freight - $3,916; Port Handling, TBS, Duties & Taxes - $7,348
Engine fully rebuilt / reconditioned (as NEW!) in September 2015 (resurfaced, re-bored and honed, new camshaft, piston assembly, piston rings, valves, timing belt, head gasket, etc.) - $2,000
Custom Bull Bar, Rock Sliders, Tray Cage, Tub Drawer/Storage, Roof Rack in 06/14 - $1,600
Ironman Heavy Duty Suspension Kit - 50mm Lift & extra 30% Load Capacity - $1,130
Koni Heavy Track Adjustable Shock Absorbers (front), Ironman Foam Cell (back) - $800
New Heavy Duty Battery January 2015, New Radiator March 2015 - $700
4x new Kumho Mud Tyres in July 2014 - $700 (plus extra 3x AT spares)

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
