Difference Between LN106R Hilux and LN106 Hilux

Just Wondering what the "R" mean.

Re: Difference Between LN106R Hilux and LN106 Hilux

Why do you want to know anyway? It's not ratsh*t, r**ted or rare. It could be radical, repetitious or even racist. It could mean refer to dealer for such questions? How about the steering setup - Rack & Pinion or Rear Wheel Drive?

Seriously though, I think it's the family of transmission used in that model...

Toyota Motor Corporation's R family is a family of 5-speed RWD/4WD transmissions built by Aisin. They share much in common (such as the bell housing-to-body bolt patterns) with the General Motors AR-5 (titled MA-5 internally by GM), Jeep AX-15, NV3550, and Isuzu AR5 transmissions.

It's a stab in the dark, not a definite answer. But if it looks like a banana and tastes like a banana, then you aren't chewing on a sand shoe.

I thought it actually stands for a LSD in the rear diff... can't find any proof for my case though! :D
My 4Runner is a LN130R

Cheers

Re: Difference Between LN106R Hilux and LN106 Hilux

Yeah i think it means LSD in the rear as well, there are definitely 2 separate model numbers (The "LN106" and the LN106R". and I'm just curious as to know what the difference is as I couldn't find it anywhere on the net. Thanks to you all for your replies.

Re: Difference Between LN106R Hilux and LN106 Hilux

Not sure about this, but mine is an LN106R and it's got a few appointments that some others I've seen don't, like cloth seats (even original before I changed), carpets, power steering etc. Again I don't have any proof, just seems logical.

Re: Difference Between LN106R Hilux and LN106 Hilux

The R stands for right - hand drive. If you look at toyodiy.com, LN106 with no letters is given as the frame code, while the model code is given as LN106R - xxxxx.

So LN106R - xxx means use a LN106 chassis, put a right - hand drive body on it, then the letters after the dash I haven't worked out except for the last one which designates which country to send it to.

The Relative answer Requires Rectification so we can Relax and not be Required to make Ranged Responses :gurn:

R just makes the model number look cool otherwise.

rang toyota, they say the R means it is equiped factory with LSD. Anything with an LSD in it that does not have the R is an optional extra thats was added after sale. Hope this puts all your minds at ease.

I can sleep now. Thanks for making the call Mr Smith. Now it can be put to rest. R for LSD is strange though.
