    Default Toyota Quantum 4x4

    Would it be feasible to convert a diesel or petrol one of the above into 4x4 , using a Hilux system.

    I am very seriously looking at it and I have done some homework.

    To plumb the Hilux components onto the Quantum is a non starter. But to put the Quantum on the Hilux chassis is extremely possible.
    I actually went to the scrapyard and had a Quantum, suspended over a Hilux chassis and to marry the 2 will be really easy.

    The Quantum was sold in Japan with the 3.0L and 2.8L diesel as an AWD. Then you just need to figure out which chassis and running gear they used.Name:  Screenshot_20190901_123931_com.android.chrome.jpg

    I’m also starting to play around with an idea to make one into a campervan. I currently own a Landcruiser camper which is great, but when I sell I’d like to go to the “ panelvan” concept. The Sprinter 4x4 and VW doesn’t cut it for me.

    I agree.

    That is why I have a 100VX chassis sitting waiting.

    I have driven the 3.0 quantum 4x4, and it’s an amazing vehicle. From what I could see I’m pretty certain it is using Prado 120 running gear.

    There are are some with low range and some without, but the Prado also sells in some markets without low range

    Henris, I think that would be excellent to fit a Quantam on a Cruiser chassis. To find a cheap sound Cruiser chassis would be expensive though

    Just import a Bukhanka (loaf of bread)! See: https://www.uaznederland.com/modellen/bukhanka. I don't know how this has not made inroads into the African market, apparently they're tough as nails and easy to maintain. I'd love one...

    Too many electronic components. What happens if the heated seats goes in the middle of nowhere or the electronic odometer stops working! Look at all those gear levers. I like it.

    Don't know what the differences is on that model. But I did have a Quantum body on a d4d chassis and it would work brilliantly.

    Daar loop elke dag baie 4x4 Hi-Aces by my verby, en BAIE van die Toyota bussies wat hulle die "Noah" noem.

    Snaaks genoeg baie min Quantums in Lesotho, weet nie hoekom nie.

    Maar klomp van daai 4x4 bussies. Nogal cool goete.8)
