What every suits your budget personally I would not be buying that kit,
Be sure to check the battery fits and expect it to be heavy, also you will need a dual battery tray to suit your Prado. It will cost between 150-250
From all reports the 2.8s are very slow at charging using a VSR
Come on Matt you must not be looking hard enough! There are some that don’t get graded
and a lot of the others stay rough for a fair while until they are Graded
Just one well known track that never gets touched is the main line up Webber’s spur, but there are heaps a lot people don’t want it...

Big congratulations to Oscar,
