    Different ARB stores charging wildly different prices?

    That's good news to hear. Couldn't really tell with the Rhino platform I had on my 76 series as it was on there when I bought it, plus I eventually gave it the full carbuilders sound deadening treatment which quietened it down more. I was only discussing that with the wife earlier today...

    Slightly irrelevant here, but what are your thoughts on the BASE Rack so far? I'm seriously looking at them for my Prado

    catch can and blanking plate

    I had a blanking plate fitted in my 76 series not l9ng after I first got it. I didn't check it again after I had fitted it though and when I had it remapped the guy who did it said the build up in the manifold wasn't bad at all. I couldn't tell you about the EGR reading on the Scangauge as I...

    From 76 Cruiser to 2021 Prado GXL

    The correct wheel track between axles will no doubt makes a difference to the ride as well ;) it's going to take some getting used to having an auto when it comes to 4wding, but I have an inkling that I will enjoy it eventually

    From 76 Cruiser to 2021 Prado GXL

    Thanks mate. Yes they are very nice to drive and it's definitely nice to be spending less at the fuel bowser than before. I'm really looking forward to xmas time and getting it out on the beaches to see how it goes Yep sure is. I am enjoying it, but still very much regretting selling the 76

    70 series production officially paused.

    The only reason we're going a Prado is the wife to be needs 7 seats for her family daycare business. It's a very reluctant sale of my 76 I tell you. If you've always wanted a 76 and feel like you'll forever be thinking the "what if's" etc, then maybe it's better to hold out for it. I absolutely...

    70 series production officially paused.

    My partner and I were told we'd be up for a 6-9 month wait for a new Prado a couple of months ago, but then we got bloody lucky that a fleet order was cancelled when the cars were already on the boat over so we pick up the new car when we get back from our honeymoon in a couple of weeks. Feel...

    75 series Cruise Control

    I think they're a cable type of cruise control that is hooked on to the throttle cable from memory

    75 series Cruise Control

    There would definitely be a kit out there for a 75 series, my old 1990 80 series had aftermarket cruise control in it. Ease of install probably wouldn't be as easy as the fly by wire plug in kits for newer vehicles like the Autostrada e-Cruise I put in my 76 series, but no doubt someone on here...

    Muloorina Station !!!!

    I stopped in for a look in March while working at one of the pump stations further in on Muloorina. Wasn't anyone camping (was bloody hot, 47°C on the 2nd day). Not too sure what the go is re: covid restrictions

    All Things 76!

    Looking to possibly buy the house we're currently renting, but not too keen on the price. More so due to the fact that it's a mining town and what they're asking for is definitely too high for what I'm willing to pay
