    This was posted on the wrong section, my bad. Hi my name is Anne (guy) im from the Philippines and recently got this Suzuki Carry/Mazda Scrum from our local dealer of refurbished pick ups from Japan. I installed an aftermarket LED tail light and a third brake light, I think its way nice than the factory ones. Also have this "canopy" with bench on each side as this truck are popular with family outings too.
    Oh well here it is..

    How much do you pay in your money for those refurbished trucks

    Around US$ 3,750. Already lifted with 13" rim. No a/c.

    Thats a good deal. I paid $3800 to Vancouver port then had to travel 2000 km round trip . Then I had to do all maintenance plus tires. so all in about $5000 Canadian dollars plus paint this fall. so about $5500. Do you have auctions in Philipines ? and do they sell Mini trucks.

    Minitrucks arrive from Japan in containers as "spare parts" to avoid paying high taxes like importing imported vehicles. They are cut horizontally, cockpit is cut in half (dump bed level) for easy stacking. Yes they are auctioned, importer-Japan. But for us end consumers they're not.

    Btw, here is a Facebook group from Philippines. Keep scrolling down and eat your heart out with their colorful and modified minis. https://m.facebook.com/groups/565885806863098?refid=27

    Your minis are LHD if I'm not mistaken. How much are they there?

    In the process of rebuilding when they are brought here, they are converted to RHD as that is standard in the Philippines.

    You can buy keis here as low as US$1,500 "as is unit", welds visible, stock tires and height, steering converted though and visible company decals where the trucks used to have worked for.
