Default Steve's Prado 120 - Australia

Hi all, My name is Steve, Living in Australia.

Been on here heaps, but mostly using this site as a library as not many people in Aus get too extreme witht the 120's.

thought i would post up some pics of my 120 seeing as there's not many on here. (except for the GX's)

some Specs:
Purchased: 01-02-2009
Toyota Prado 120 series
Only a GX. (base model over here)
3.0L D4-D intercooled turbo diesel
6 speed manual
full time 4WD
it's WHITE
NO TRACTION CONTROL
NO AUTO HILL DESCENT
NO D.A.T.S (stability control or VCS)

Got the windows tinted the day after i picked it up looks so virgin with the highway tyres still on.

Mickey Thompson MTZ 265/70/17 on stocko rims





Had to make a spacer for the rear door wheel carrier cos tyres got too much meat. spacer is 15mm.

at 2 months of age, the 120 went in for some presents.

ARB Deluxe winch bar (didn't want to colour match it)
Safari Snorkel
IPF Spotlights

and most important of all, OME.

In preparation for 285's at a later date, my home made spacers were replaced by a KAYMAR rear door spacer. this also holds a telescopic rear work/reversing light.

new spare wheel spacer by Kaymar.









i also decided to change the look at the rear plate holder on the door. i haven't seen any other prado's that have done this yet. just small things like this that make it unique.

here's some pics of the speaker install. i used 3mm alloy plate. prolly coulda used something else though. most people use MDF (timber) cos its easier to work with, but there's nothing to prevent the timber getting wet and rotting or dissolving.

i measured the original speaker mounting points for the adaptor plates. then cut the hole out to mount the speaker.

this is the front doors. the stocko speakers are 20w 6"x9" size.


this is the back doors. the stocko speakers are 17.5w and about a 6.5" size.
it was hard to cut the hole out as i didn't have a 125mm hole saw. rough, yes, i know.
plus, the shape i came up with was based on the factory speakers, and looks a little like transformers too.


this is the factory tweeter and tweeter bracket with the new JVC tweeter in place.
the JVC tweeter was a tight fit, so anything larger will be hard to fit.


this is the rear JVC speaker mounted. the speaker would actually fit inside of the hole in the door. and the JVC is a 6.5" too.

the rear JVC's are handle a max of about 200w and have a rubber surround (good for 4wd'ing)



this is the front speaker. JVC splits and handle a max of about 250w. what i liked about these splits was that there wasn't a crossover unit to try and mount.


this is the factory tweeter location behind the door trim. the JVC tweeter is mounted already.


this is a pic of factory speakers. the tweeters are so small its hard to see them. front speakers are larger and more powerful than the rears.


i have already upgraded the stereo head unit to a Sony unit, and i am running standard factory wiring with an 600w amp to power a 12" sub in the back. the difference is outstanding. clearer crisper sound and no distortion higher up in the volume range.

Brand New underguard by Brown Davis.


1 week old underguard. (it works)


ARB Compressor mounted (note the chair leg stopper. its rubber and suits 22mm diameter chair legs. keeps all the crud out of the outlet)

HID's (they are 6000k light temps. not overly happy. might got for the 4300k when i can be bothered)


Got some new Plate for my Birthday (and a shot of the underguard)


here's another shot of the underguard. (its a PITA when it comes to servicing though)

also got an ARB tow bar. i had a genuine toyota one, but i chose ARB over it. the gen. one is cast and only bolts to the back and underside of the chassis. the ARB one is fully welded and bolted front, back and the underside of the rear chassis crossmember.

stronger IMHO.

a couple of pics out playing.

pic was taken just before the creek dropped in to about 1.2m deep. water over the bonnet.


these pics were about a month ago before all the monsoonal rains hit.




airing up. my 18 month old son only saw me do it once and learnt straight away. amazing.
