Hey mate, I did not even un-do the seats, i've built a platform for it to sit on, and it fits in nice and snugly and doesn't move.

Quick update everyone!

Can't remember if i posted about new Kaymar rear bar dual wheel carrier but had made the truck sag A LOT in the rear so have opted for some Snake Racing 2" extended shackles to level it out a bit but has also made the ride a lot more comfortable having the extra weight back there...

Got around to installing some ARB scrub bars and side steps too, which I made fit onto the genuine Toyota bullbar by trimming 20mm from the end of the bars, fits a treat and looks soo good!

Lovin the cruiser and have just ordered a new awning too!

Love the rig mate; have been following it for a while now.
Got some questions for you though:
1. How are the MKT's coping on the vehicles? Are you still running the same set as when you first did the rims and the tires?
2. The wheel spaces in the rear, do they just bolt on the original thread and then they have their own thread? How do they work? Keen to fix the rear axle issue on mine 76!

For the benefit of 70 series owners, I installed a new head unit in my 2013 model 70 series, and the antenna wouldn’t come up, even though I bought the wiring loom from the auto shop.

The wiring loom plug that incorporates the antenna signal has another tiny black and white wire. You need to splice into that wire and link it to the blue amp/ radio is on signal wire. Then it will come up when the stereo is on.

Sorry mate,

haven't checked this thread in a while; yep, I've still got the same set on the cruiser, I've done 80,000kms now and still have a little way to get yet; I'll definitely be getting another set!

I dont run any wheel spacers at all.. I dont see what all the fuss is about; I do a LOT of 4wding and its really not an issue for me at all. (It would obviously be GREAT if it was the same axle width front an rear, but doesnt make any difference to me)

Installed cruise control into the 76 this week! Made a little DIY video. Used the AutoStrada E-Cruise kit. One of the best mods I’ve done! Check it out if you like
