I wonder why Toyota stopped making kei-trucks, leaving the market to others?

Mid-engined too! Lowered, twin-cam, nice period alloys... I can see it now. Neko.

Maybe it had something to do with partnerships with Hino and Daihatsu? As Hino mostly manufactures heavier duty diesel trucks and bus limos, while Daihatsu has a lot of small passenger kei, and had a lot of lower displacement flatbed trucks. There was also a lot of badge engineering going on between the three as well. Hino manufacturing a number of Toyota branded product, along with a bunch of daihatsu branded toyotas.
