    Thanks, I get jealous of all the cool cars that the US gets, so I suppose it doesn't matter what part of the world you're in :)

    Aussie Prado

    With the new control arms, my tyres were hitting the very top edge of the control arm so new wheels were required Spent all weekend fitting my latest purchase, 4wd Supacentre Titan drawers, I couldn't even make them for the price First impressions, Really clumsy to fit, generic instructions...

    Aussie Prado

    In preparation for going away over the long weekend, I fitted my rooftop tent to the Rhino platform, I was trying to find a way to do it without drilling holes but after nearly a whole day trying to get my head around it I buckled and drilled 4 holes. I won't be leaving the tent there...

    Aussie Prado

    2017 I replaced suspension It's suspension time, the ironman stuff had seen its day with the extra weight I had added up front Dobinson remote reservoirs, dobinson coils, 100-300kg constant load in the back and adjustable upper control arms for the front, This should make it better with my...

    Aussie Prado

    Then 2016 happened: Went on a bit of a spending spree last week: Ordered ARB deluxe bar, the best thing about the colour of our car is that the ARB powder coat is very close to a colour match!! Put a new winch in at the same time, the Warn had filled with water and destroyed the motor :(...

    Aussie Prado

    Picked it up 2014 on a Friday morning, drives like a dream. Big day in the workshop Saturday morning, the transformation begins Trailer brakes: Safari Snorkel: Very well made, but the template leaves a lot to be desired, I'm not 100% happy with the way that it follows the guard, Even though...

    Aussie Prado

    This is an older build that I've copied from another forum I am on: Bought the car in November 2014 As good as my Patrol was, it was time for a change and something with "on road manners" The GU has been out 3 times that year due to other commitments and was going to waste in my driveway...

    Overland Rigs Australia

    Dunco, I think they are worth it, I have slept 15 nights in it since buying it last year. The only thing I regret is only getting the weekender, not the tourer The tourer comes with a fly and an annex that covers the front and the ladder better and I should have paid the extra $100 and just...

    Dobinsons 4x4 Accessories

    I'm in Australia and recently fitted their springs and shocks into my Prado, I think they are great. Personally I wouldn't be comparing their other gear to ARB, they started as a spring manufacturer and I believe they import their other accessories from overseas I'm not trying to put a dampener...
