    Fortuner Re: Fortuner versus Prado

    Its what my onboard says - so sure it might be a little out, but iím still happy with that - and only on the highway as mentioned. I once got a little better than 10km/l traveling from Pretoria to...

    Fortuner Re: Fortuner versus Prado

    For your requirements the Prado will be a better car. High mileage (within reason) should not be a concern in the engine department if well looked after. On both vehicles as the plant is the same...

    Re: Land Cruiser V8 60 000km service

    very old thread I know- but would this be a good estimate of services on the 79 v8 of +/-R15k p.a. ? Given moderate driving (15k km per year)

    Prado Spare Wheel Cover

    As it happens I sold my spare wheel cover a few years ago because I fitted bigger tyres. Recently went back to the original size and yup, you guessed it, I am now looking for another spare cover for...
  8. Re: Larger diameter tyres and towing ability & consumption

    2” down in rim is significant- what vehicle? Will they fit?

    I am/was very happy with the 70” - really awesome tyres, soft ride and loads of grip. Plus the Prado looks better proportioned. I just...

  10. Larger diameter tyres and towing ability & consumption

    I need new rubber on my 4L Prado. Have been using 265/70/17’s and have enjoyed the little extra height. The bigger tyres obviously meant higher fuel consumption. Question is- would the 70 profile...

  15. Re: What would the perfect rooftop tent look like?

    saw their products at the show- looked pretty good but also bit heavy. Did you go for the one that lifts both sides?

  17. Re: What would the perfect rooftop tent look like?

    I always thought that its a bit limiting to have only one direction to sleep in (head facing the open side of the tent) due to the narrow end where the shell hinges. I see one of the manufacturers...
  18. Re: What would the perfect rooftop tent look like?

    Mmm interesting thought- how would this work? Drawers sliding out of the shell so you can access contents from outside?

    I am looking for a ARB bumper for my 120. Looked at new but cant justify the new price tag on an old car. If anyone knows of one or have one for sale pls let me know.

    This probably sums up my key decision point - packing space. Luxuries aside (not critical for me), the load tray is the one thing Iíve missed since I sold my Hilux years ago and this the 200 cannot...
