Hey, I was just wondering if anyone out there was using a 1994 l400 Delica? I just bought one and am looking for some information on lifts and other various modifications!

very cool. Is it right or left hand drive? I’ve only seen photos of them posted by teardrop owners in England.

It’s RHD, takes some getting use to! I keep turning on the wipers when turning thinking it’s the turn signal

I used to have one in Australia. I lifted it approx 2". Like most independent front suspensions you can't go too high without stressing out the CV joints. basically just springs and dampers.
Snorkels are a popular accessory here, the series 2 (96 onwards) one fits but overlaps the RHS indicator and you don't use one of the bolts. Requires a different template to the later model.

Being a series 1, the fuel pumps don't like sitting around, as it would have been, so keep an eye on that. Being purely mechanical it may be better in the long run once reconditioned.

How do you go getting insurance for your Delica? Because I am familiar with them and not too expensive I was considering one as a US-based vehicle.
