  • Daza's 2019 150 GX

    It's out with the old and in with the new.

    Sold the 2010 silver GXL D4D Auto. It was my first 4wd and it gave us some great memories:
    - 2016 trip through the Pilbara
    - 2017 trip through the Kimberley
    - towed our camper many times to the south west
    - lots of beach & dune work
    - instilled a passion in me for DIY 4wd upgrades

    Took delivery of a new 2019 GX D4D Auto in January. I wanted white but went against the normal practice of GX in Glacier White and ordered Crystal Pearl. Pre-delivery options:
    - Toyota tow bar
    - floor mats
    - Boss Vapour wheels
    - Toyo OPAT2's in 265/70R17

    So far I'm really happy with it. Power delivery and transmission are quite different in the 2.8L, I preferred the shifting in the 3.0L as it would shift up a bit earlier. But I am loving the radar cruise control.

    More posts with mods coming soon.

    Tinting, roofrack, bullbar, lift kit and side steps done.

    Rhino platform is the 1.9m version, a straight swap from the old car.

    Steps, bullbar and lift kit are Ironman, 300kg springs and Foam Cell Pro shocks. The unloaded ride around town is good, less body roll and not harsh over speed bumps. Yet to give it an off road workout. The bar is a Premium Deluxe, which mainly means 60.3mm tubing as opposed to about 50mm.

      DIY project Safari snorkel install done. Took a couple of evenings and was pretty satisfying, given the worry I had approaching the job.
      Attaching a few photos in case anyone else is thinking about giving it a go themselves.
      The Safari instructions plus a couple of youtube videos were good enough to see the job go smoothly.
      I used Sikaflex 227 as a sealant for the metal cuts.
      Also used some flexi sealant on the air hose joins to the airbox and snorkel. I sealed up the 3 drain holes in the airbox, but left the one-way drain valve open.

        Great job on the snorkel and the Prado is looking good.
        Cheers, Terry.
