Hi Guys,

So i spent some money this past week. Bought 3 new (almost new) Toyotas for my new projects here in the Congo.
Each Cruiser is meant for a different site. And the Prado is my new project. Much softer than my current 2009 Cruiser.
I need to make sure the Prado is 100% before i take it out into the bush.
Its a 2008 model. D4D. What would the expert suggest i replace and repair before taking it onto the long road. Taking into consideration that it was most probably imported from Japan in 2010. And the last 4 years driving in the Congo is same as doing 4 years solid 4x4ing with your vehicle.
Also need to do a lift and get some serious wheels and Kit for this Prado. So any and all suggestions are welcome.
