Has anyone fitted a Milford cargo barrier to there 80 series ? I got one out of a 91 4 L cruiser and noticed that when I tried to bolt it up , its seams a fare distance from the rear seat , around 15 cm , is this normal , or is it a diffrent kit to suit a 94 4.5 land cruiser . I assumed it bolted to the child restraint bolts .

Any ideas guys and gals Venus Bay

We had a Midford one in both our 80 series, early 92 and 97, we swapped it over to the newer one, it fits snuggly up to the second row seats, with no gap. It had long extension bars which bolted to the floor back near the wheel arch on both sides. The one we got was a two position one so it could be moved up behind the folded second row seats or in our case when the seats were removed we put a home made shelf in front of the barrier. Sounds like it is a different fit.

We had one for our 91 model 80 series which we transferred to our 97 model. It fitted snuggly up against the second row seats and was a two position one. It had long bars which bolted to the floor back towards the wheel arch on both sides, not the child restraints.

I installed a Milford cargo barrier myself on my 80 series and my GU Patrol. It does NOT bolt to the child restraint holes. All holes have to be properly installed. There is a special mounting kit as the holes have to be re-enforced.

A 22mm (from memory!) hole is drilled centrally to allow a plate approx 75mm long to be inserted through the hole behind the roof/floor. Two secondary holes either side of the 22mm hole hold the steel plate in place and allow for the cargo barrier to bolt to it. This is required for all 4 holes (+2 extra if allowing to move barrier behind front seats).

If you want the full rated protection of the Cargo Barrier, you should buy from Milford the proper installation kit. Unfortunately you cannot remove the original installation kit from the vehicle once you take the cargo barrier out.

I "may" have the installation instructions laying around for the GU. Although the location of the holes is different, it will show the proper way to install the holes. If you post your email address, i can scan and send them if you want.
