I have a 2014 GXL Prado and I’m looking at fitting a cargo barrier. I’m wanting to find out how far can I lean the back seats back with the barrier fitted. Thanks.

Hi

Not the same but maybe similar. I have a 2013 GX with drawers and cargo barrier and seat does not recline at all.

Cheers

Thanks mate, I thought it was a long shot but I had to ask the brains trust out there. I’m going to talk to a fabricator and see what they could make up. Thanks again.

I have a KAON cargo barrier in my Prado 150:

Not as tough as your traditional cargo barrier (and doesn't meet the AS/NZS4034.1:2008 standard), but does the job for the lightish gear at carry above the top of the seats. It's pretty solid. I'm really happy with it.

The listing says

"Adjustable brackets to accommodate different seat positions."

However, I can't testify to that because my GX badged Prado doesn't let you recline the seats.

Hi Grinbot,

I have a 2010 gx150 With only 2 rows of seats.

There is a lever where the seat/back meet that you lift to adjust the recline of the rear seat, One on each side to adjust the split sections.
At the top near the headrest is a pull button to fold forward.



Sure it would be there on a later model too.

A bit like the hidden sunglasses holder that nobody can find.

Cheers
Mike

Thanks mate, I’m actually looking at pulling the third row seats out now and replacing with a home made plywood floor. I’ve got a Milford model barrier coming and if I can’t get enough recline on the seat with it fitted due to the wheel arches I will look to change the shape of the barrier to get it to work. Thanks for your thoughts on this.

Thanks for tip cruza25!. Yep, that lever does do the recline in the Prado GX.

The kids car seats have always been in the back, so haven't much chance to play with that.

From the furthest forward there is about 3 inches to the barrier so that’s how much it reclines.

May depend on the make of barrier and length of brackets.

The kaon allows for recline adjustment as it attaches to the headrest mounts.
As said it is not a proper barrier- ok for light soft items but not tool box.
