    Currently I'm 4by-less, but used to own a '98 Nissan Pathfinder, and had heaps of fun with it. I'm currently looking at buying a preloved Prado as the next step up, as there's heaps more toys that you can fit to it 8)

    Wishlist: A Prado :lol: CHECK :!: 120 GXL V6 sitting in the garage now 8)
    2003 GXL V6

    electronic rust proofing
    uhf radios (can't hear the child that sits in the back!!)
    Cooper ATR's
    Rod holders

    Looking forward to bilstein shocks, a better compressor than the unreliable unit i have at the moment. Don't need much more to enjoy the beach driving.

    Hey wengnuts,

    where did you get the recovery hooks from? i've just bought a coromal camper trailer and looking forward to going over to Moreton Is. but don't wish to get stuck on Middle Road.

    Hi All, Good to have a 'Prado' specific forum. Have read heaps of valuable info already incl getting my electric windows operating.

    We just bought our petrol GXL and are getting used to it. Coming from a Subaru Outback, it's a barge and a step down in creature comforts (couldn't afford a TX or Grande) but will tow our camper (ordered, but not made yet) much easier than the Subi. We swapped over in anticipation of a trip around the countryside next year, giving us time to sort out any bugs and get any required accessories installed.

    Cheers, Nige
