    Hello fello Mini Truck Enthusiasts!

    It has been a long time since I have posted on here. I took a break from my Hijets while I was away with the U.S. Air Force.

    My current project is my S110 Hijet 4x4 . I purchased it a while back from a member on here and I have done a lot of work to get it on the road today.

    After years of research and contacting the California DMV, I managed to make my Hijet Street-Legal for use on California roads.

    I will post pictures and provide updates as time permits.

    It's nice to be back,

    Cool, been eyeing this hijet on craigslist for a while now. I know the owner of the orange hijet van. Nice truck!

    Welcome back and thank you for your service! It's been quiet around here. Truck looks great and congrats on the registration.

    Yeah I have it on there just in case someone is interested in buying it. I'm in no rush to sell. I plan on making it as comfortable and road-friendly as possible.

    Thank you Greg, It's been a while. We need to get more minitruckers on this forum. How are things with your truck? Last I recall you just had the Honda engine going.

    I also have a street legal Hijet here in Socal but I bought mine already titled and plated.When I went to transfer the paperwork they insisted I had to smog it which of course can't be done.I ended up going through a local registration guy and he got me through by doctoring zip codes.How did you get through that?The guy I bought mine from was a retired fireman who never had to smog it and told me the DMV thought it was electric.Don't know about that as it says gas right on the pink slip.

    Looks great Sonny. Where did you get your battery box cover?

    corkmoto see your inbox.

    old grayfellow. It came on the truck, its the standard box from the hijets. I think I have an extra one but the front plastic cover has been chewed up on the sides
