Thinking of getting an after-market BB, rear-bumper/tow-bar with spare-wheel carrier, snorkel and a RR for a 2000 Surf. I know the Surf is based on the Prado 90 Series chassis but that's where my knowledge stops :wth:
How does 1 tackle such a project, where & how does 1 start :?:

Die nuwer Surf is wel gebou op die Prado chassis, en die ouer een op die Hilux s'n.

Baie dankie
First generation (1984–1989)

Instead of developing an entirely new model, Toyota took the existing Hilux with short-bed pickup body, made some simple modifications, and added a removable fiberglass top to form the Hilux Surf.

Second generation (1989–1995)

For 1989 (MY 1990) the Surf continued its reliance on the Hilux pickup - as the pickup was redesigned, the surf followed. It remained virtually identical to the Hilux from the 'B' pillars forward, but this time gained a full steel integrated body in place of the prior fiberglass cap. It also gained an all new coil sprung rear suspension system, which unfortunately proved to be just as prone to sagging as the leaf springs on the rear of the previous models.

Third generation (1995–2002)

For 1995 (MY 1996) the Surf got an all-new body shell on an all-new chassis. This time, it shared virtually nothing with the pickup it had originally evolved from, and had more in common with the Land Cruiser, as it shared its chassis with that of the LWB Land Cruiser Prado.

Fourth generation (2002–2009)

The fourth generation Surf incorporated serious changes to the chassis and body of the vehicle but was targeted at approximately the same demographics as the third generation. The updated Surf looks very different from the older Surfs, but it was designed to the same criteria as a mid-size, quasi-luxury, off-road vehicle. It continues to share most of its underpinnings with the Land Cruiser Prado of similar age.

Wiki wiki.....

Lyk my joune sal daar inval by die derde generasie op die Prado onderstel...

I see this quite an old post. According to Toyodiy.com the chassis part number for the 2000 4Runner/Surf is 51002-3G101 and does not cross reference to any other vehicle. I have found many parts that are shared on both vehicles but not the chassis.

Did you find anything for the car that was the same as a Prado?
