Every time I pass a Prado 90 I get this spasm in my neck and my heart skips a beat.
So last week I am up in JHB and Pieter sent me a pic of a beauty. He test drives and everything is 100%.
If something goes bang it is Pieter's fault :twisted:

Anyhow I let them know I will take it and had to wait till Monday to see it and drive it.After some more waiting I got it this afternoon.Did I mention it is the 3.4l V6 5VZ-FE :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

Man o Man what a car. I am very impressed.

Its got 318k on the clock.I know its a lot but I know this engine is only just run in.
It's got a dual battery system in and air lift suspension.LOTS of buttons

George welcome to the other "more comfy" side of the club!!!! :yahoo:

Your Prado seems to be in really good condition and you have some valueable accesories that came with it!!! Enjoy it a lot and that smooth V6 sound under the right foot!!!

318K is just run in for these motors as I have read many times that those motors give up to 600000km's trouble free if they are looked after.....

Seems like Kungwini last year planted a seed that has blossomed now... :surrender:

My first mod will be to get 2 load bars in between the standard rails. I need to put a canoe on top. Have anyone done this.I want to do something like this.
http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/sho ... o+roofrack

Only problem I see is that the 90 does not have the same type of rails that the 120 have.I cant see the track on the inside of the rail

I dont want a full roof rack.It is going to spoil the look.

Eish.I am getting old :slap:

Shot George, it's a great car! Just check when the Cam belt was changed (should have been done at 300k) and inspect the CV covers.

I have heard of this engine doing 750,000km and still sounded as sweet as solken glass.

Just an update on things so far.

When I got it I had these moment where I thought "Lest keep this one standard".Yeah right.That lasted a few good minutes :angel:

First port of call was to get in contact with oom Eric.As always his speedy services had me drilling this weekend.
1.jpg
2.jpg
3.jpg
4.jpg
While I waited for the antenna to arrive.I found this great deal on a roof rack.A roofrack was not that high up on my list,but the deal was to good to walk away.So I got the rack with water tank and jerry can holders.
I fitted my solar panel,but I dont really like the idea of water and jerry cans on the roof,but will keep it for now when I have to do a serious long trip again.
6.jpg
7.jpg
8.jpg
I also got some set tidy's that go behind the driver and pasenger seats. When fitted I did not like the look.So I move it to the rear door for more packing space
5.jpg
Next on the list is some spots and a snorkel :cooldude:

I must admit.Every time I drive the Prado I get more impressed with it.It is really one of the nicest cars I ever owned.
The auto box put me off since I never owned a auto before,but now I just love it.

Yesterday I almost bumped the wifes car :shock2: I came into a parking lot and just use the brake to stop without pressing the clutch :blushing:

When I put the solar panel on the rack my main concern was to get the wires in the cab.
I also want to be able to remove it since the idea is not to keep the rack permanent on the roof.
So after a bit of thought I came up with the following.
I removed one of the covers from the standard rails on the rooof.I removed one bolt and the drilled the hole bigger so that the wire can get through. Fitted a Brad harrison and lots of silicon.Voila :thumbup:

I've got the flat 48LED Dome lights fitted .... that thing is SICK! It's like daylight in the cab with it on.

Are the ones that you fitted even brighter or not as bright?

Hi Andy.I got the 48dome in the middle and the 36dome at the back door.
The 48dome gives out way more light.FOr these front dome lights it is only the BAUS that fits in there.
Must admit that when I open the doors at night it looks like a spaceship has landed :D:

I know exactly what you mean, especially since I have concealed under-door lights that activate individually, spreading a pool of light on the ground below each access point. :D:
