Easier to convert from 4wd to 2 (as someone has done on here - not entirely sure if it was legal though) - but surely if you had a 2wd van and a 4wd pickup you could do the swops.

Maybe if we gang up on dino he might post some photos of the front axle arrangement.

Pretty sure the terios has the same gearbox as a 4x4 hijet.

Just need to work out the front driveshafts, diff, mounts and propshaft kit.

Oh no not in a million years, that wouldn't be the slightest bit helpful!!! Wink 

I think it would be amazing if we could unravel the mystery that is the 4x4 hijet.

I could even be tempted to convert my pickup into 4x4.


It's got to be made out of other Daihatsu's - Maybe there is a bit of sportrak in there too.

Do what's different about the front suspension?

Looking at 2wd front hubs, they could take a CV joint.

I bet the rear prop shaft is shorter to accommodate the transfer box

After an hour of messing about, I've got the Daihatsu workshop manual for the Terios.

And been digging through the microfiches.

Are the hubs really different?

Gearbox really it just an extra transfer case that bolts on the back of the original gearbox and........

It's chain driven to power the front wheels Laughing Laughing Laughing Wink

http://www.easier.com/13854-piaggio-porter-4x4.html says the Porter 4x4 was introduced in 2007. As you're finding, they're not that common.

Well I think the diff has a vacuum operated actuated clutch or something inside it.

Really don't know much about them.

Whats wrong with having the switch on the dashboard?
