Hi and welcome Cameron. :thumbup:

Aircon was available as an option with 4y models but I think you may have a problem sourcing some of the parts now. Things like the compressor, thermo-couple, expansion valve, condenser (radiator) activation switch and hoses might not be too difficult and other model vehicle parts could work. The evaporator (small "radiator" in the cab at the fan) might also not be too difficult. However 4Y specific parts like the compressor bracket and replacement crank pulley could be a challenge to source. :winkx:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
