    Question WANTED: Toyota RKR (70 series) in the auction condition

    Hi there 4x4 enthusiasts,

    I wanted to know if anyone has come across any RKRs in the military auctions or for that matter any RMRs in Rangers or other Govt auctions.

    Need one or maybe two, so please let me know if you have seen 'em anywhere in Karachi or Lahore.

    Also, if anyone may have inquired about them out of curiosity what the going price has been ?

    After having kept it in the appropriate Buyer/Seller section for a week and getting no response, I'm moving it here for some appropriate information.

    Though never been a big fan of those (over-rated) TLCs but hey.... helping a friend lands in the domain of my just causes.....saw atleast a bunch( maybe close to a dozen of 40s and a couple of ???70s....) at SHERWANI motors on the superhighway. This info is less than a week old but can be incorrect on the series/variants as these are particularly not very(my) eye catching objects and especially turn unnoticeable when you are flying in a MITSU !!! Happy????

    @doubletrouble
    Brother the J70 platform was virtually unchanged till 1999, when the front leafs were replaced with coils for better road manners, and rear leafs were made longer for a better ride. These changes appeared on what is commonly known as JMR. The JMR had the same engine as the RMR, the 4.2 1HZ naturally aspirated diesel. The RKR ran the 3F 4.0 gasoline engine with the H41 trans 4 forward. Specs on these motors are all over the net, so as you can find out, the 3F has more torques and horses than a 1HZ. That 'serious torque' you are talking about is due to a diesels torque band which starts right off idle but dies out higher up in the revs. The 3F needs around 2000 revs to really start pulling, but beyond that i tell you, it can haul 1HZ *** till it disintegrates. That 'fun' element is down to the gearing, RKRs have very low gearing, more suited to strictly offroad use, which some would see as a plus. Thats why you dont get the kind of go you would expect from a 'chaar hazaar see see patrol'. The same engine is in the 60 series and that cruises along at 160 without breaking a sweat. So the point is, if its offroad action, towing, climbing, crawling and generally more heavy duty applications, RKRs are the way to go.

    @sarmadqureshi
    Every one has their own preference brother, but if i had to get another one, id stay clear of auctioned 70 series. Reason being, unlike 40's these vehicles are not being phased out due to service completion, so the ones that are getting tossed out are those that have had major accidents, roll overs or have been burnt. Why go for a vehicle that has been structurally compromised? Why dont you go for a running BJ/FJ/HZJ70? With a bit of luck and some intel you can get those at govt auctions once in a blue moon. Bottom line, if you are one of those people who like their rides factory spec, and dont fancy 'bani hui jeeps' go for one thats up and running.

    I run an 82 M151A2, straight out of the military, to its depot and out through the auction does it look like i'd be looking for a factory spec ride

    However, your comments on the 70 series conditions are true, they and the rovers are out these because of something major that happened to them.
    Still out on the lookout, would'nt even mind throwing out a 1HZ for a 3F.

    @sarmadqureshi
    A 1HZ going out in favor of a 3F would not be wrong, unless you like swimming in you 4x4. 3F dizzys make this engine a sucker in deep water, japs were probably smoking up when they decided to put it where they did, might aswell have put it on the differential. I have been wondering since long, can a RKR be fitted with one of those water proof boxes and cables you run with the distributor on your mutt?

    Hamzah, I'm sure a way can be worked around waterproofing the coil and the distributor. Mutts wires are of a specific length and 4 in number. I think for a 3F you'd need a bit longer wires and 2 additional ones. What do you run ? I assume its an RKR. I'd be interested in an auto tranny for it too.

    You got that right, its a bone stock RKR. Tell me, the ends of those wires, what are they like? Do they have threading that fastens onto the plug hole and the distributor side? And about the auto tranny, do you want a daily runner or something? Keeping in mind the love of petrol this motor has, i really doubt that. So if you want a core 4x4, brother my vote would be to stay clear of the auto, that would just ruin one of the biggest plus points to this engine, engine breaking, which it has bucket loads of, even in H gears.

    Yes Hamzah, the plug wires are screwons at both ends, I'll try getting you a picture. On the plug side, the plug has an adapter to make the wire fit.

    What do you mean by engine breaking ? I do intend to use it as a daily runner, thus the option for an auto.
    Where did you get yours from, would like it if you share pics or a link of where they are here.

    You better get some extra cheque books as a first, you would be tearing out plenty off it, when you run it as a daily runner. On the 'engine breaking', that was an example of poor english, what i meant was engine braking. You wont have much of it left with the auto. Here is the link to my RKR, looking forward to your comments.
