Default Okinawa based D21 Extended bed

Haisai from Okinawa!

New to owning trucks but I needed a solution for hauling large amounts of distillery wastewater for my company, a 1996 Nissian Truck allows me to do that in style.

Its a 2WD, 2000cc with extended bed. 27,000km on the clock.

Its been sitting in storage for a while it seems, but the guys I've bought it from have been giving it the works as they love trucks. Resprayed (including under) and are redoing the interior.

The listing says the bed load capacity is 1T (kg). Is there anyway to verify that? Would there be evidence of better brakes, springs etc?

I would appreciate any information about what to watch out for when hauling loads in the back. I plan to use 200L HDPE drums and also 1000L IBC.

There is currently no tie-down/anchors, is there someplace I can get them? Are they standard fitting etc? Otherwise I might have to jam some rebar in there which would be a shame.

Also looking for a bumper, but that seems a longshot in Japan.

Cheers,

David.

Hi there.

Funny. I bought my truck in Okinawa 2 years ago. Now living in the mainland, but will probably go back to Oki next year.

That truck looks great. I'm pretty sure you already know, but most Okinawan vehicles are rust buckets, so I would give it a serious look on the underbody. Another rust prone place that I just remembered is the battery tray. Some months ago I was replacing the battery and found out that my tray looks like rotten cheese.

Regarding the bed load capacity, ask them to show you the registration papers (shakensho). It has the official load capacity written in kg. Any change to the bed load capacity has to be submitted to the transport bureau, otherwise it most likely wont pass the inspection. The official load capacity should also be written in the tailgate, otherwise it wont pass the inspection too (usually has a sticker, but you can also use a permanent marker). Since the papers contain personal information, they might refuse to show it to you. If they do ask them to just show you/take a photo of the part that shows the bed load capacity (最大積載量).

Regarding the bumper, been looking for one too, but they're expensive (from 30,000 yen upwards without shipping). Check yahoo auctions and mercari, there are some rear bumpers for sale right now.

Not sure about the extended bed, but the Japanese double cabs have a bed with hooks. Sometimes I just use ratchet straps directly on the bed edges (so far moved furniture and a dirt bike that way).

Anything else feel free to message me!

Hi PFDSA,

Thanks for the input! Did you ship your truck over to the mainland?

I'm asking about the registered weight capacity and checking in on their progress when I get a chance (they are down in Itoman). There was no sticker as it's had a respray.

The bumpers are a bit rich for me...but I'm sure the costs of any rear-end damage will soon surpass it, so will keep looking. I'm sure you also remember there isn't a car on the island without a dent (as well as the rust!)

Cheers!

The orange is kindof their thing, offered to do the whole interior like that...

I politely declined.

Might regret.
