Default Interchangeability between FJ and Prado parts

Has someone done any research as to what parts are interchangeable between the two cars? I would expect that most would be mechanical.

I do not have any source to refer to but I found out that most of the mechanical parts are the same.
What's is you're looking for exactly?

On the V6 most of the mechanical and chassis would be swapable. Really depends which prado you have and what you are looking at.

Not looking at something in particular yet, just ideas for future replacement parts or upgrades. Thanks for responding, it is comfortable to know that with the increasing number of FJs, there will be a good supply of mechanical parts to choose from.

I was hoping that some of the upgrades that were designed for the FJ, such as suspension parts and upgrades can also work for the Prado, however, I believe that minor differences exist which would prevent that from happening.

Cheers.

Speaking of suspension, why would anyone want to upgrade it?
What's wrong with the stock set?

Sorry for the mix up, I was referring to using Upgraded suspension parts that are designed for an FJ on my Toyota Prado. Is it possible?

Hello fellows ..I believe and has read in other site that the Old Man Emu suspension for the FJ is the same for the Prado...in only varies on the rear shock it must be NS-402 something like that...

Sure, you can post links over to the Prado related sites. Most of the suspension parts are interchangable between the FJ, 4R and Prado.

Certainly, if you are buying any of the OME suspension and bumper parts, they make them for the Prado. That is a common vehicle in OZ.

Eduardo,
The pics are not showing on my work computer (no worries). Is it your rig, with the FJ Cruiser lift installed?

Is a Rough Country Suspension Kit ...it lift 2" back and 3" front and you got what you see.

FRONT 35" after lift 38"

REAR 36.5" after lift 38.5" something like that...

Heres a picture of my dad prado (blue) and mine you can see the difference

Where you from?
07-09 Fj parts are a direct swap.

Same as 4th gen 4runners and probably the Lexus GX.

Default 04 prado VX

Im from Miami

So what about the 2004 Model VX Prado ?

Would this be a direct swap for mechanical parts ( cradle, control arm, rear stabilizer, spindle, etc ) with the 98 - 08 Land Cruiser, LX 470 and 4 Runner?

Thanks for the response

My 2004 Toyota Prado Land Cruiser is the same as the white one above.

However, I urgently require the attached image of the part in the picture.

Wts the name of this damaged part that was removed from the Right Front ? Is this the cradle ?

Almost everything related to suspension and steering components are compatible from the fj, 4runner and GX

Is that a control arm?
I didn't know the prado got to the us.

Prado's are really popular overhere we have them with the v6 and the 1kz turbo diesel.
