I have the redarc which I mounted under the radio stack forward of the gear stick. It did not need to be mounted o a particular angle. Have a look on prado point.com, there is heaps of info and pics there.

Why not get one with the remote switches then you only have to mount the Panel in a standard Knock out spot in the dash. The bulky unit gets stashed behind the dash out of the way.

Hi. Mine is a 2012 GXL. I fitted a Prodigy P2 just above the Knee airbag on the LH side of the columb. It fitted neatly and there is just enough room to touch the reverse sensor on/off button. Cheers,Bob

It really depends on what you are towing. We run Ultimates and use the Tekonsha2 as its the best for real off-road use and if you tow in hilly country regularly in our experience. But if you are just towing then the RedArc is a good choice

Apart from that we have a 150 and 120 and the controller is mounted on the RHS of the steering column low down on the dash panel. This is clear of the knee airbag deployment and also of legs
