Has anyone actually done a second battery install on a Prado 120. Pirahna tell me it is a bit fiddly (have to relocate the power steering reservoir & an aircon pipe?).

I put one in mine about 12 months ago... no prob at all. took about 2 hours, as i made it all myself as not kits were available.

I have a 3.0 TD GX, will try find a pic...

Drew i have done one on a 3 litre RV .Quite easy.does yours have a place in the front lhs for a battery?The only tricky part is finding where to take the wire for the soleniod from. Is your prado the same as mine?

Drew,

It's easy.
The Pirahna battery tray (approx. $110) comes with all the bits to help relocate the power steering res. Instructions are clear, and pictures help a bit too.
I took my time, and it only took about 2 hrs.
I used a Redarc isolator (approx. $120).
Overall, it was a hell of a lot cheaper than getting someone else to do it.

Regards,
Tony
