Nice looking Prado there.... so I assume that makes 2 Prados in your family??
Whats the main use going to be of the Petrol version over the Diesel one??

I've got the Grande in auto and bro-in-law has a 2003 GXL V6 auto. Only one Prado in my family. 2nd car is a V6 Tarago. Lots of power in that one.
It's taken a long time to start your own build thread Andrew😀 looking good though.

Yep, too busy, plus I didn't think I was going to do that much to it. But thanks to PP, my wallet is thinner but for the better.
Os and also my signature started to get too long.
No worries Rob.
One of the first things I did was to add some roof racks. There were several iterations to this:
First was a pair of Thule aero bars to mount onto the roof rails.
Second was the 3-bar heavy duty set from Toyota and I added a home made platform to it.
I then removed the platform and added 6x 2m Rhino HD bars lengthways
More pics here, link
Next was the Rhino Platform Rack and 1375mm Rhino aerobars.
And finally, installed the Rhino Pioneer Platform Rack (p/no 42103)
It is not the model intended for the 120 Prado so it required modification.
More info here, link.
I needed some storage for jackets and soft items, so found this cargo net on ebay that looped around the grab handles.
I bought some Sandgrabba mats for the 1st 2 rows. No pics but here's the website http://www.nobullaccessories.com.au/sandgrabber
I then added insertion rubber sheet under the 2nd row seat to join the Sandgrabba to the rubber cargo mat.
I previously put on a TJM nudge bar so that I can mount a pair of Roo-lite 180XP. Got some brackets machined so that the spotties won't stick out so much.
This was then changed to a Sovereign bullbar which came with a winch cradle. Thanks to 1coolbanana for assisting in the install in Sydney.
