Having just purchased a Toyota Prado 1998, I was wondering whether anybody knew where I can get my hands on a rear wheel and jerry can holder? Presently in Sydney but happy to ship.

Any recommendations?

Almost unheard of for a 95series Prado. Because the spare was already on the tailgate it was perceived that there was no market for a rear wheel carrier/rearbar etc. No nobody was willing to pay $4,000 to carry 2 extra jerries or an extra spare.

So I am guessing you're looking for a way to carry more fuel. I am only aware of one manufacturer of replacement tanks for the 95series and that is 4wdsystems in South Australia. They make main tank replacements of 155 litres for the rear main tank, and 69 litres for the forward subtank.
4wdsystems tanks

Is that of any use?
Cheers

They make them for 120 series & Patrols, so it may be worth persisting in your search.

Have you actually done a search?
There is a dual wheel carrier on eBay at the moment, I think they will also do single wheel & double jerry cans.

Gday Shaker,
I had a fair bit to do with 95 series Prados when I owned 2 of them in the past and helped with the forums before Pradopoint came along. At that time, the only rear bar available was from a mob in WA, as ARB and Kaymar don't make them. Yep did a search before I posted and found nothing.
But you are right, it looks like there's a mob in Vic on Ebay with a feedback score of 23 who make the dual rear wheel carrier to order - but no mention of the jerry can holders that the OP wanted.

Cheers
phil

There listing said to call for a special order, I assumed that meant if you wanted any modifications. Anyway, it wouldn't be a big job to modify one of the wheel carriers to carry a couple of jerry cans.

Yep...smart phones get too smart sometimes...but gee they're great!
Looks like it's just you and me on this thread!
13 degrees in Adelaide today......but seriously, I can't see the benefit of fit a dual rear wheel carrier for the benefit of carrying 2 jerries of fuel. But I liked the setup in the back of the old Prados - lot of room.
