    Alright nice pic! I was starting to wonder if anyone was gonna post up lol. Nice rig Rambler! My bumper is copied from some guys out in California of course. @LTDSC has the rig that caught my eye. Love the look and wanted something different than what you see in here Florida. Also wanted it to be lighter in weight than a full plate. My welder who loves unique projects did me a favor on the price so it only cost 1/3 of my 5th gen Shrockworks. Lot less labor intensive for a good fab guy as well.
    Are your fenders fiberglass or modified? If so I need more clearance like that. Been wanting a set, but I won't be spending the money until I go back to work. :(
    @Ruby4R Yes Sir! That's what I wanted for this page, people's different ideas and tastes in styles to post em up. And 5th gens get all the attention lol. Love to see an Aussie on here too! Welcome!

    @MI-FL off roader Unfortunately we don't have any newer generations here in Australia, however from what I've seen online of the 4th and 5th i think the 4th has a much better look to it, i enjoy the stock look but that could just be because it's something new to me, :notsure: but regardless i look forward to seeing more posts in this thread and different styles to your 4th gens :)

    Good Day! Going kind of off topic for a minute. I've been following Kelvin over at CartuneNZ https://www.youtube.com/user/CartuneNZ
    and he told me the same thing about his country, which is why he has a fine business swapping the 1UZed with compatible ECUs in all manner of vehicles. He informed me they never saw the production of the 2UZed in any Toyota. I would have thought the Prado or Surf would have had them installed since the 4th gen 4Runner and GX470s 2UZeds were produced in Japan, not just here in the states (Tundra/Sequoia). Am I wrong about this? Did Australian sold Toyotas ever have the 2UZ and just not in NZ? or did Toyota put different versions of the UZ in Aussie Trucks and SUVs? I know our diesel restrictions here in the states don't make it cost effective for Toyota, so we have missed out on a lot of great torque producing engines. The old tourist buses called a "Coaster" in the Bahamas are the perfect example of a great Toyota diesel we would never see here. I will say I really like and I'm still learning a lot about the world wide Toyota community! Cheers!

    Hey I believe the Prado got the 1GR in Australia in the same year that the US got the 2UZ, 2004 i think... i may be wrong however thats just my understanding of it.

    That's in great shape. I'll post pics of mine once I get it all back together again. Winch comes next week. Have the bumper off right now to be sanded and painted. Just added those same headlights too.

    wow I freaking love that color on yours! Turned out really dope!


    again, that color looks so good on there..lol had to say it twice...

    Thanks, the wrap is expiring soon so im thinking of getting royalties from Relv Camp for their medusa and doing something with it.
    https://relvcamo.com/medusa/
    The front needs to stay white so ill probably blend it out.

    Just be warned these headlights have a tendency to peel down to about half way, then it fades off to where you can barely see the line of break, but yea both sets I've had the clear started peeling at the top. ::shrug::

    I like them both, so I'm no help. But, do you plan on a winch? and does the top bumper provide a mounting point? Also if mounting a winch you may have to upgrade your front springs to accommodate the extra weight of a bumper and a winch.
