Make Your Off-Road Adventure Pleasant by Being Well-Prepared

Friday, 26 August 2016 09:33:13 Europe/London

Are you planning to go on an off-road adventure in your Toyota 4x4 anytime soon? Well, in order to make your trip pleasant, you will need to be well-prepared in advance. By being well-prepared, it means that your Toyota 4x4 is in good shape to endure the rough terrains, and you have all the necessary 4x4 parts and the right tools for the trip.

Before hitting the road, it is of utmost importance to inspect your vehicle. You can do this by yourself, if you know how the automobile and its different components work, or by taking your 4x4 to a mechanic. By inspecting your ride, you will be able to identify any current or potential problems and fix them before they aggravate.

After inspecting your vehicle, it is now time to decide which tools and Toyota 4x4 parts you will need to carry on your trip. What tools and Toyota 4x4 parts you need to take depend on different factors, such as where you are going, for how many days you are going, with whom you are going, and so on. If it is a short, one-day trip, the requirement for the tools and 4x4 parts will be minimum. On the other hand, if it is a long, several days trip, the requirement will be more. Carrying extra may come in handy during the long off-road trips.

During the long distance, off-road trips, one of the most common problems is overloading the vehicle. Overloading the 4x4 vehicle may cause damage to the suspension. Therefore, carrying spare shock absorbers, as well as springs, bush kits, axles, etc. can be a good idea. Overloading may also cause damage to other parts of your 4x4; hence, make sure that for the longer trips, do not overload your ride.

If your vehicle is a bit old, then chances are, many of its parts and components are near the end of their lives. Therefore, you might need to carry more parts. But, carrying more 4x4 parts will overload your vehicle. So, what should you do?

Well, the answer is simple: carry generic Toyota 4x4 parts and just the right tools to replace them. Take, for example, a radiator hose. It is prone to damage during off-road driving, but that does not mean you carry different types of hoses that your vehicle has; rather, just carry a multi-fit hose and a rubber weld tape. A multi-fit hose and rubber weld tape will be enough to fix the problem, and they will not occupy much space.

Another good example is a belt. It is necessary to carry a spare fan belt for keeping the engine cool and running. You can, however, ignore carrying an extra timing belt or air-conditioner belt. The timing belt does not break abruptly, and you can still move on without a working air-conditioner. Carrying them will just occupy some space in your vehicle.

Carrying the right tools to replace the 4x4 parts is another important issue. You certainly do not need to carry all the tools and equipment to perform an engine overhaul during your off-road trip. What you need, however, is just the right tools and equipment that would help you remove and replace the Toyota 4x4 parts that you will be carrying. So, carrying what tools, to the most extent, depends on the Toyota 4x4 parts you will be carrying. Of course, carrying the standard toolkit is mandatory.

Always be well prepared before you embark on a thrilling off-road trip. Ensure that your Toyota 4x4 is in good driving condition by inspecting it or getting it inspected by a mechanic. Carry generic Toyota 4x4 parts and the right tools that will help you replace the parts you will be carrying. Also, carry the standard Toyota toolkit, and do not forget the essentials like food, water, cell phone, GPS, battery charger, fuel, oil, etc.

Commonly Replaced Toyota 4x4 Parts

Wednesday, 1 June 2016 13:51:24 Europe/London

Every Toyota 4x4 owner will tell you that regular maintenance of the vehicle is crucial. By taking care of your Toyota 4x4, you can substantially increase its lifespan. There are some Toyota 4x4 parts that should be regularly checked, especially before you go on an off-road adventure so that you do not face any trouble during your trip. Here are five Toyota 4x4 parts that need to be replaced from time to time.

Spark Plugs / Glow Plugs

Petrol engines use spark plugs, and diesel engines use glow plugs. It is essential to change these plugs from time to time in order to keep your Toyota 4x4 running smoothly. The engine taking a long time to start, engine idling, engine surging, engine misfiring, reduction in fuel economy, lack of acceleration or power all indicate that it is time to replace the spark plugs or glow plugs. Note that glow plugs last longer than spark plugs so the time to replace them may be longer than spark plugs.

Brakes

Stopping your Toyota 4x4 takes its toll. And the toll is significant, especially when off-roading. The brake pads eventually wear out and need to be replaced. In order to retain the stopping power of your 4x4 vehicle, you have to replace the brake pads as soon as you first see the sign of their wear. Noise from the wheels, applying more pressure on the brake pedal, or a slight delay in stopping the vehicle all indicate that it is time to replace the brake pads or service the brake system.

Filters

Your Toyota 4x4 vehicle normally contains three types of filters: air filter, fuel filter, and oil filter. These filters prevent any solid particulates and unwanted contaminants from entering the engine. Not preventing the particulates and contaminants may reduce the performance of the vehicle; in some cases, they may damage the engine. These filters are usually made from fibrous materials, so they get clogged or dirty over time. Air filters can be cleaned sometimes, but the oil filters and fuel filters cannot be cleaned. Therefore, replacing them is the best option. Drop in power and fuel economy, as well as the overheating engine, are the indicator for the replacement of filters.

Headlights

You need working headlights in order to see clearly and drive safely at night. Replacing Toyota 4x4 headlights is not frequent. But since they are electronic components, they can go out unexpectedly. Replacement of headlights is imminent. Without working headlights, you will not be able to see where you are going at night. Needless to say, it can be dangerous driving in the dark. Before you hit the road for a long trip, just check your headlights by turning it on. If they are not working, replace them.

Suspension

The suspensions of your Toyota 4x4 are responsible for the overall handling of your vehicle. They also contribute toward the braking, as well as keeping you and the passengers comfortable by reducing bumps, vibrations, and road noise. They are, of course, very sturdy, but can wear out over time when subject to constant stress, especially an off-roading stress. Persistent driving on rough roads can easily weaken the suspensions. Before heading out for an off-road trip, check the suspensions for any oil leaks. Also, take your Toyota for a short run and notice if you can hear any unusual sound from the suspensions. If there is any oil leak or unusual sound, take your 4x4 to the mechanic and get the suspensions replaced.

There are many Toyota 4x4 parts that you will eventually have to replace. The above parts are just more common and need frequent inspection and replacement. Replacing these 4x4 parts at the earliest will ensure to keep your vehicle running in top condition for years to come.

Keeping Your Toyota 4x4 Optimal

Monday, 2 May 2016 12:26:30 Europe/London

As a responsible Toyota 4x4 owner, you need to make sure to take good care of your vehicle. Taking good care of your vehicle ensures better performance and long life of your 4x4. But, how would you take care of your Toyota 4x4?

 

Well, first you should remember not to drive too hard, especially on the rough terrains. When you are going on an off-road adventure, be sure that you ease your Toyota on the uneven roads. Not driving carefully on the gravel, sand, snow, dirt, rocky, mountainous, or watery terrains can easily damage several Toyota 4x4 parts, like suspension, axle, brake, bumper, heating and cooling system, transmission, drivetrain, engine components, and so on. These damaged Toyota 4x4 parts will hamper the performance of your vehicle. In the worst case, damaged parts can leave you stranded in the middle of your off-road adventure as they no longer function at all. It is better to be safer than sorry by off-roading carefully.

You should also not drive too hard on normal roads. Normal roads are pleasant to drive on, and will not cause any immediate damage; however, driving too hard or overstressing your Toyota 4x4 will eventually deteriorate certain 4x4 parts in the short course of time. Deteriorating 4x4 parts will again cause performance issues as well as safety issues. Deteriorating 4x4 parts also hamper the fuel economy of the vehicle. For that reason, drive your Toyota 4x4 with ease even on the normal roads.

One of the most important factors in keeping your Toyota 4x4 in mint condition is regular maintenance. Take your Toyota 4x4 to the authorised dealer or Toyota specialist for the routine maintenance. During this maintenance, the mechanics will inspect your 4x4 and identify any problems that may aggravate later on and affect the performance and safety of the vehicle. During the routine maintenance, Toyota 4x4 oil filter, fuel filter, and air filter are also cleaned, or if required, replaced. Filters are among the most common 4x4 parts that get clogged and detriment the performance of the vehicle. From time to time, replacing Toyota 4x4 filters is necessary.

Finally, when the situations arise, replace certain Toyota 4x4 parts. Persistent use of the 4x4 or accidents can damage or deteriorate Toyota 4x4 parts. These Toyota 4x4 parts need replacement so that the vehicle can regain or retain its original performance and safety. Toyota 4x4 parts are easily available. Whether it is Toyota Hilux parts, Toyota RAV4 parts, Toyota Land Cruiser Parts, or Toyota 4Runner parts, you can find almost any Toyota 4x4 parts for your vehicle in the local store as well as on the online space. Further, you will also have the option to buy original Toyota 4x4 parts and aftermarket Toyota 4x4 parts.

Finding Genuine Toyota Hilux Parts

Thursday, 7 April 2016 07:54:17 Europe/London

It can be difficult to find and procure the right Toyota Hilux parts. Different models of Toyota Hilux make it even more challenging to search the right parts. Besides, there are many fraudulent stores that will try to sell you bogus Toyota 4x4 parts. It certainly can be tricky to figure out how to avoid these scams and acquire the actual Toyota Hilux parts you need.

There are several ways to finding and acquiring the right Toyota parts. Here are some ways how you can find the genuine Toyota Hilux parts and avoid the scams.

First, you will want to find the reliable and legitimate Toyota 4x4 parts suppliers. The internet or the references from someone you know can help you in this regard. Once you find the supplier you can trust, you can rest assured to always get genuine Toyota Hilux parts from them every time. A trustworthy and legitimate Toyota 4x4 parts supplier is an invaluable resource to buy genuine parts.

As said in the previous paragraph, the internet or the references can help you find the legitimate parts suppliers; however, how do you actually know whether the supplier is legitimate? Also, how do you know whether the Toyota Hilux parts or other Toyota 4x4 parts you are receiving from them are actually original and reliable? The answers to these questions are not easy, but there are ways you can figure out the answers.

The best way to get the answers is to do some research. Find out about the Toyota 4x4 parts supplier’s track record. See how big and reputable they are. Also, learn about for how many years they have been in business. A big, reputable Toyota 4x4 parts supplier with a positive track record and significant years of business experience is certainly worth considering. All these details about a supplier can be obtained easily from their website. Since most Toyota 4x4 parts suppliers have their own websites or e-commerce sites these days, it will not be difficult to discover and obtain the information about the supplier.

If you, by chance, come across a deal that is too good to be true, it most likely is. Although there are many suppliers who sell affordable Toyota Hilux parts and other Toyota 4x4 parts, you have to be rational with your expectations. No supplier will sell Toyota parts or other car parts if they are not going to make a profit. If you find Toyota Hilux parts or any other Toyota 4x4 parts that are incredibly low-priced, they are, in most cases, sub-standard parts.

Another good way to figure out whether the supplier you are purchasing your Toyota Hilux parts from is reputable is to check the packaging of the parts. Genuine or OEM Toyota Hilux parts will have Toyota’s logo and QC holograms, and have neat packaging. Most bogus parts suppliers do not bother about the packaging; they only care about making the parts look original. For that reason, pay attention to the packaging of your Toyota Hilux parts. Look out for the odd design, strange colouring, and overall quality of the Toyota parts.

If you still need further clarification about the legitimacy and trustworthiness of the supplier, just call them directly. A legitimate Toyota 4x4 parts supplier will have a permanent phone number and a permanent business address. Bogus suppliers, on the other hand, want to avoid all sorts of direct interactions with the customers; thus, they will not have any contact info.

A high-performance car, like Toyota Hilux, needs high-quality, authentic parts. Avoid sub-standard parts at all cost, as they give up on you at any time. Sub-standard parts also detriment the performance of your vehicle.

For genuine Toyota Hilux parts, UK Toyota owners go to KS International Ltd. In business for over two decades and currently the largest independent stockist in the UK, KS International Ltd. supplies genuine Toyota 4x4 parts, Mitsubishi 4x4 parts, Nissan 4x4 parts, Subaru parts, and other Japanese 4x4 parts and accessories.

Aside from 4x4 parts and accessories, KS International Ltd. also supplies OEM Isuzu truck parts, Hino truck parts, Mitsubishi Canter / Fuso truck parts, and other Japanese truck parts and accessories.

Buying 4x4 Parts Online

Thursday, 7 January 2016 06:41:40 Europe/London

4x4 parts are necessary for every 4x4 to ensure the vehicle keeps on running, especially after the breakdown. Before purchasing any 4x4 parts, however, it is vital to know what precise parts you need to get your 4x4 back on the road. Another thing to consider is the price of those 4x4 parts. No matter who fixes your 4x4, it is necessary that the parts are inexpensive, yet of a high quality.

The 4x4 parts, especially the Japanese 4x4 parts, are costly. If you still have a warranty on your vehicle, however, you can easily cover those expenses of part replacements.

Before buying anything for your 4x4, always do some research. When it comes to searching and buying the 4x4 parts, you have two options: go to a local store or visit an online store. Local stores may not have the required parts; hence, visiting online stores will prove to be worthwhile.

At both local and online stores, you can avail aftermarket and original 4x4 parts. While the aftermarket 4x4 parts lack quality, they are affordable. Similarly, original 4x4 parts are of high quality, but they are expensive. If the budget is not the constraint or if it is a vital 4x4 part that needs replacement, then you should always go for the original 4x4 parts. Some online sites also offer discounts on original parts so acquiring them may not prove to be expensive at times.

Some Important 4x4 Parts

As mentioned earlier, before acquiring any 4x4 parts, it is necessary to do some research on the parts. The internet can be your best resource here. Some of the important parts you need to do research on include 4x4 accessories, body panels, axles, suspension parts, steering parts, exhaust, filters, engine electrics, engine parts, heating and cooling parts, clutch, lights, transmission, breaks, and wheels. Vital info on all these 4x4 parts is easily available on several online 4x4 related sites.

While buying the 4x4 parts or accessories, be sure to buy the right one for your vehicle. Fortunately, some reputable 4x4 parts online stores have made the process of selecting the right parts or accessories easy. These online stores let you filter the search for the right 4x4 parts based on:

-          4x4 manufacturers, for instance, Toyota 4x4 parts, Nissan 4x4 parts, etc.

-          4x4 makes, for instance, Toyota Land Cruiser parts, Nissan X-Trail parts, etc.

-          4x4 models, for instance, Toyota Land Cruiser KDJ150 3.0TD parts, Nissan X-Trail YD22DDTI parts, etc.

-          Specific categories, for instance, Toyota Land Cruiser KDJ150 3.0TD Engine parts, axle, filters, etc.

With this search and filter option, you can easily find the right aftermarket or original 4x4 parts for your vehicle.

Is it safe to buy 4x4 parts online?

The simple answer is, yes. Online sites, after all, have a reputation to maintain; hence, they do not do shady business. Of course, some sites may not be ethical. Therefore, for a safe course, search and buy 4x4 parts from a reputable online dealer. How to know whether the dealer is reputable? Well, see how long the dealer has been in business! Check its company info – see whether it has a physical address where you can contact. See how big its inventory is – the bigger the inventory a dealer has, the more reputable it is than others. Finally, see what type of payment the dealer accepts. A reputable 4x4 parts online dealer will accept payment through various secure payment gateways.

Buying 4x4 parts online is also beneficial as you can order your 4x4 parts from the comfort of your home. In addition, you will get the required parts at your door steps. Good discounts are also available when you shop 4x4 parts online. Shopping 4x4 parts online can certainly be your best resort to buying the right parts for your vehicle.

What Tools & 4x4 Parts to Take on an Off-Road Adventure?

Tuesday, 17 November 2015 06:41:01 Europe/London

 

Do you own a 4x4? Are you planning an off-road adventure? It is vital that you carry certain tools and 4x4 parts on your trip.

Deciding what tools and 4x4 parts to take depends on various factors, like where you are going, with whom you are going (solo or group), for how long you are going, etc. If it is a day trip nearby, the tools and 4x4 parts required will be minimum. For a long distance trip, however, the requirement will be more. Anything can breakdown and the parts may not be available. For that reason, carrying extra might come in handy.

A common problem with long distance trips is overloading the ride. Overloading can damage the suspension. It would be fortunate to have a spare absorber, along with a spare spring, axle, bush kit, and so on. Overloading the 4x4 in many cases can cause damage to other components as well. Therefore, for long trips, ensure not to overload your 4x4.

While going on an off-road adventure, the “common sense” approach is essential. If your 4x4 is getting old, then chances are more components and parts are near the end of their lives. This will require you to carry more 4x4 parts; however, remember what was mentioned a while ago: do not overload your 4x4!

So here is the thing. Always carry the generic tools and parts. For instance, a radiator hose is susceptible to damage during an off-road adventure, but it does not mean you carry every type of hose your 4x4 has; instead, it will be sufficient to carry a multi-fit radiator hose and a small roll of a rubber weld tape. It will fix the problem and will not occupy much space.

Another example is a belt. It is vital to carry an extra fan belt for keeping the engine running and you moving. However, you can forsake carrying an extra air-conditioner belt. You will not stop if the air-conditioner of your 4x4 gives up… right? Of course, it also depends upon the places where you are going. If you are going to a hot outback, you will require carrying an extra air-conditioning belt.

Carrying the right tools is another vital issue. You do not need to carry enough tools to perform an engine overhaul in the middle of nowhere. What you need to carry, however, is certain specialty tools that would help you replace whatever 4x4 parts you are carrying. Therefore, carrying which tools, in a way, depends upon the 4x4 parts that you will be carrying. Of course, carrying your 4x4’s standard toolkit, along with universal, multi-purpose wrenches is mandatory.

Overall, it will be in your best interest to consider all the components that you think will stop your 4x4 if they fail. As simple as a blocked fuel filter can stop a vehicle. Therefore, before heading out to some remote location, determine what 4x4 parts you will need. Inspecting your vehicle will help you determine what parts you may need. Carry the necessary 4x4 parts, but ensure not to overload the vehicle. It will be best if you go out in a group. That way, you will be able to carry more parts, different 4x4 parts. Not to forget, the additional help you get from the group is a value-added benefit.

In order to enjoy your 4x4 off-road adventure thoroughly, always be prepared. Strangled in the middle of some wilderness is no fun. Along with the tools and parts, carrying essentials like food, water, GPS, cell phone, fuel, etc. is important. If you are completely prepared, off-roading is pure fun.

For genuine 4x4 parts, UK off-road enthusiasts can rely on KS International Limited (https://www.ks-international.com/).

If you already have a spare glow plug or a hosepipe, you can change it easily by yourself and continue your off-road fun. For that reason, it is wise to be fully equipped while you are on an excursion. Always carry easy-to-change or replace 4x4 parts on your trip. If you happen to be an expert 4x4 mechanic, who if required can perform complex repairs, then carrying 4x4 engine parts, suspension parts, transmission parts, steering parts, electrical parts, heating and cooling parts, body parts, and so on, can be very handy.

With extra 4x4 parts and accessories, you can even help out your fellow 4x4 buddies and show the spirit of true off-road sportsmanship. If you help someone in need now, who know when someone will help you out when you are stuck and in need of assistance?

Locking hubs or free wheeling hubs is another example of 4x4 parts that facilitate towards the performance improvement of your 4x4 vehicle. These locking hubs manually disconnect the front wheels of your 4x4 from the front half-axle. It results in a better grip in some terrains where traction is limited.

Along with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) standard replacement parts, 4x4 engine upgrade parts, body customisation parts, and many different types of performance parts are available today.

The History of Japanese 4x4 Vehicles

Thursday, 14 August 2014 14:15:35 Europe/London

When you think of Japan, the last thing you may think of is 4x4 vehicles. They walk around a lot, have bicycles for miles, and usually prefer transportation that does not involve clouding the atmosphere. However, even Japan has a history with 4x4 vehicles being used. The first 4x4 issued in Japan was made by Mitsubishi called the X-33. Then, lighter 4x4s became being used, called the Kurogane in 1935. This was a midget scout car, about the size of a Samurai with a look of a 1935 Ford that was shrunken down, and was built by Riuo and Toyota but later produced by the Nippon Nainenki Seiko Company.

The Type 95 Kurogane was used mainly in the Second World War and was used to scout infantry. This vehicle was also good enough to be used in the war with China. Between 1937 and 1945, about 4,800 were built for this sole purpose alone. This car would only fit 3 people, which proposed of two being in the front and one being in the back, and was unarmed and unarmored; since it was just used as a scout, the vehicle needed to be light and fast and could not be burdened with weight or machinery.

There was also a vehicle introduced in Japan in the 1950s called the FJ-25. It was an SUV with a right-hand drive that was only around for a few years in Japan. It was replaced by the FJ-40 shortly after, thus resulting in only 63 FJ-25s being sold in the country, thus making it exceptionally rare.

The problem with 4x4 vehicles is that most were made in other countries, mainly the United States. The Japanese were focused mainly on 2 door vehicles or other means of transportation that did not result in the heavy use of gasoline or coal. However, especially during the war, most of these 4x4’s were mainly used for that purpose. Civilian cars, before the production of the Japanese 4x4s, were used in the military in order to scout and cover terrain. The Japanese have an extensive use with only building things for specific purposes and they still show that mindset today. There were even FJ-25s made with Japanese trip, just for the country, even though the car was more heavily produced in America. This is a great moment in history for the Japanese as it showed a sign of adaption to an ever-changing market.
