      Brilliant. Is the access to gear via the rear doors convenient? I’ve often wondered why we don’t see many/any full conversions like yours on the 4 door 70 series landcruiser’s here.

        Yes, the access is good. Obviously, the doors open only SO wide - (unlike in a van where they slide) but it works. I'm still planning to do a little video that shows the setup better. I have been packing and finding a place for everything I need as I am leaving on a 5 -6 week trip shortly.

        There is an Alu Cab and Alu Innovations conversion for the 76 (station wagon) It is relatively new. The 76 is the same size (length) inside the back as the Prado. I think though the 76 might have a slightly higher roof - I stand to be corrected.

        If you like - send me your email or WhatsApp number and I will share the videos with you, I don't think anyone else on this forum is interested, so I will send it to you direct

            I ve been going around in circles with exactly the same issue. I want the space to be able to "live", boil some water, work from a laptop - and it's only the 78 series which is in the running. But based in Europe- Its only the GRJ7 that’s available (and I ll be damned if I can work out how to get the Tropical diesel version registered with these EU emissions regs. That only leaves the prado.
            What you've done is absolutely groundbreaking. And hats off to you. Please don’t hesitate to post more pics, details and how it’s working out. If only i could find someone in the eu to do exactly what you ve done! Bloody good job in any case.

              Thank you for your comment. My apologies for the late response. I have just returned from a 6 weeks trip in the newly converted Prado. Keep the following in mind - if you are tall - the Prado is more difficult to access from the back as the back door opening is not as high as that of the 78 Troopy.
              Secondly - if you are tall - the bed is only 2m long, and a single bed. Fortunately, I don't have any of those problems. But the setup really changed my Overlanding and camping experience. for the better.

                    Hi guys

                    Walking down the middle of a prado, especially in Australia, seems like a significant challenge. Safety regulations and environmental concerns would likely require engineering approval for such an endeavor.

                      The environmental concerns especially was a challenge

                      environmental concerns meaning:
                      "It is defined as any change or disturbance to the environment perceived to be deleterious or undesirable. Environmental concerns can be defined as the negative effects of any human activity on the environment. The biological as well as the physical features of the environment are included"
