will do Mark, the brackets are the ones that are cut to fit upto the chassis then the tow bar bolts to the brackets, I can do photos when it light and price-wise I really don't know, make me an offer if you want to Mark

I'd say specific to our model Hiace, ie 88-95 I think it is, can't see why the chassis would be different for different models

Hello. Here in Canada there are almost no Hiace's, so no regular shop could supply a trailer hitch / tow bar. I have a 1991 SuperCustom 4WD LH107 with the 2.8 liter 3L non turbo.
I had to be creative.
So I easily adapted a commercial tow bar made for a similar year Toyota 4 runner that I bought at a wrecker. It fit perfectly after a little modification around a heat shield. I had to cut 2 "access windows" into the outside sides of the closed box channel sub-frame to allow access to holes I drilled for the heavy duty bolts and nuts. after that the installation looked almost "Factory". Very solid and I am confident in its safety.
Cheers,
Roman
