Re: 100 series wiring question

Yeah same setup as a 80 series 24v start
Drivers side battery is the norm from what I've read for hooking up acc.
But voltage at the other battery is 12v as well think there a soleniod wired in on passenger battery that draws 24v to the starter

Re: Safari GVM

As mentioned check your gvm on car jam as no-one can tell you by just your model number. E.g My 80 series is 5 seater so has a higher gvm than a 8 seater 80 series I've had a cop stop me to check my towing weight on my 100 series and he went off the tow bar rating which was 3500kg brake so let me go...

With the mud collecting in the bars just clean it out when it builds up on the trail If not it can build up start pushing your panels in Another thing is your truck won't feel as agile,seat time will cure this and you'll get used to it.

Re: prado/surf SAS 4" lift custom radius arms

I wonder if the stock 80 series radius arms are longer than the prado ones
I've looked under a prado and the 80 series arms look more stronger built
Could be a cheap option.
