I think I have 4 things I want to do to my 120 prado
130amp alternator upgrade $200
endless air $395
3" dump to my cat, leave the rest of the exhaust $440
barn door table, just end half as it will interfere with the draw

I've been getting some OT of late. I've been on a buying spree (you cant take it with ya):
Travel Buddy marine oven
Pubski trays for the TB
Snorkel pre filter socks
foam air filter oil for the socks
battery analyser
HPD catch can

And it's time to redo the aux bat lectrics:

Mini ANL distribution blocks
narva 6 port fuse box with common power and earth

At some point you think you have your bus right where you want it, then you realise there is still more dollars to spend.

Still need to look into an R&R bead breaker.....seeing I do so many tyres :mad:

Getting ORS rear drawers and 45 litre water tank as well cargo barrier and top shelf installed next week in the 100 series. Also have bought an Engel 45 to go in there and getting the stock twin cranking batteries changed out for dual system. Using Optima 31 for the crank and a 100ah Lithium as the auxiliary charging that up with a Redarc 1240D. I am still thinking of getting another Optima 31 so keeping the cranking setup parallel but not sure I really need 3 batteries!

I like over kill. 2 is 1 and 1 is none. So having that 3rd would be awesome. We have 2 group 31M's and 2 solar batteries. Yeah. So 3 sounds good to me.

I have done about all I want to do to mine.
1st 4x4 I hardly did anything to as I was poor.
2nd about all I did was suspension and had plans, but the boss had other ideas and I had to sell it as we were poor.
3rd I upgraded a heap of stuff in the 9 years I had it and finally finished tinkering about 2 months before I inherited Dads very low km ute.
4th was Dads ute, he drove it out of the dealer and put tyres on it after 10 years... tyres, oil and washer fluid was about all that didn't come from the Mazda factory.... oh, and a radio aerial because a cow ate it and he couldn't get angry with John Lawes with no radio. I put in a snorkel, UHF and a water tank.

This one I have done up on the cheap, but after 4 years have everything I want on it. Got the bull bar, side steps, UHF, dual battery setup, side rails (still in the shed though), snorkel, driving lights, light bar, winch, good rubber and the home made camper to slide on and off.
The problem is that driving it to and from work everyday is slowly killing it.

So, on the shopping list is....

Yeah are expensive for sure.
Ozbar i think are the cheaper kaymar bars aswell but not sure if they make for 100 series.
Raslar bars are some of the nicest looking bar and way better priced than kaymar but again, not sure if made for 100's.
