Good day

Recently purchased my new Prado after reluctantly selling my wrangler. Sellers remorse though I cant complain about how luxurious the Prado is. It even goes straight in a straight line.

Millage is around 260k, the vehicle was kitted up by my brother-in-law who was going to keep it for his retirement however, he has is immigrating. Really sad for him but I could not give up this unity.

Hoping to do some over-landing with her, still need to name her though. But in time, the name will come.

The vehicle was bought with the following extras:
  • Smach&Grab
  • Daul Battery System
  • KC spots
  • LED Bar
  • Nudge Bar
  • full old man emu suspension 50mm lift
  • Snorkel
  • Rear Brake Louver
  • 5x FJ Cruiser Mags
  • Tyres BF's 85%-90% tread - upgrade from standard 265/65/17 to 265/70/17
  • DeCat'ed with Stainless Steel PowerFlow Cats and Rear Free Flow Silencers
  • Full Grey Leather with Band New Escape Seat Canvas Covers
  • Streamline road rack
  • Harp Top Tent
  • ARB Compressor
  • Oyes touch screen media player, Rear Camera, Front Camera, Internet, GPS - tracks loaded
  • 2x additional Mags and Tyres with BF's KO2

Safe travels

Hi Andrew,

Welcome here. I have to say that I like your Prado and it looks really well set up!! Mine is still stock standard, but soon it will start to transform into something a lot more offroader like. I really like the FJ rims on your Prado they look really great...

Welcome aboard, Andrew! :thumbup:

Really nice unit by the look from the pics, looks well appointed and well kept .... (the garage roof needs a clean though :twisted: :D:)

I can see why you said you couldn't pass up on the vehicle, and that mileage is not overly much for that motor and drive train. Enjoy! :winkx:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
