The Show us your Prado Thread!!

Unread post by beast2h » June 16th, 2007, 7:11 pm

Due To More people jumping into these mighty rigs a few of us thought it would be a great idea to start the thread for prados!!

As per the directions in the rules & guidelines, post up a pic or two of your Prado & a link to your Member's Rides or Build thread, & from there on in, please put all your updates/mods in that build thread, not here - we can use this thread to pick out those builds we want to follow in more detail.

Anyway here's mine.

Here my Prado it's a 2000 TD auto, 2" spring lift with bilsteins. and 265/75r16 BFG MT. I think I might put some 80 series shocks on the rear for more articulation, and Total choas upper control arms in the front. (Those are on the wish list!)

Just ironman shocks, nothing to special. They could be a little longer in the back, but for what the Prado gets used for, they suffice.

No, they dont. I think it's because i'm running coil spacers on top of the standard height coils, i'm still working on what to do with that end.

They just miss the flare, and the wheel offset keep them off the inside of the wheelwell
