I was an ASE master auto tech for 13yrs and have seen this problem before. It sounds like the idle air control valve on the intake manifold has stopped working and the idle speed is not being controlled(letting the engine idle too slow which causes a stall when put under a load such as putting it in gear). Try giving it a little throttle while putting it in gear if that works let off the throttle if it dies you will know the Idle Air controll is not working.

is this model common rail or does it have an injector pump,injector pump has a built in lift pump and if this is weak then the transfer pressure is low which is causing scavanging.if this is the case then fitting an in line non return valve in the fuel in line can help,but more often than not fitting a low pressure in line fuel pump is a cheaper solution than an injector pump overhaul

With all you've done so far I'd have to say that I'd be tempted to take it to a good tranny shop just for sake of a diagnosis, which the mechanic can probably do free of charge, and a little drive down the road. Almost sounds like it's trying to take off in second gear or something. Other than that, the only thing that comes to mind at all is possible plugged exhaust, like catalytic converter.

Hi Spacey, Sounds as if you have an old model of the HiLux. Is it Carburetor or injection? If its carb I think that's where your problem will be. If there is leakage between the throttle body of the carb and the main body above it, there will be a flat spot when pulling away from start and possibly at higher revs. The easiest way of dealing with the problem is to replace the carburetor. Keep in mind that the most critical setting in any carb is the float level, if its not set correctly it will either flood or starve. Sounds as if you may have those measurements wrong. The settings are specific to the type of carb, if you need further help, tell me the type of unit fitted to your vehicle. Regards Johngee10
