Put it inside the back passenger door, preferably on the left hand side, it really comes down to what suits your needs, but its not a bad place for it, easy to get to

One reason I can think of is if you're kerbside parked you would be on the non traffic side.

As Griffin had said, a lot safer if you have to pull over on the side of the road

I suggest you put it in the back because that is what I did and it worked out well. You might consider making a slide for it. A couple of draw runners from Bunnings and an hour's mucking around and you will have something to brag to your mates about.

I have a 95 litre Evakool in the back on top of the drawers on a slide. With a 2 inch lift and 33s it's a bugger to get stuff in and out of it. So, for long trips in goes in a rear passenger footwell on the kerb side. It gets sun less and better ventilation because there's not a lot of other stuff packed around it. It also gets the benefit of the car's aircon.

Wasn't there a thread on here a few years back about removing the back seat from a Prado (I think) and someone advised that would need a blue plate to be legal?
I haven't looked into it properly but intend to remove the back seat from our 100 series for long distance travelling to help with weight as much as room.

.
Yep, in Queensland at least.
Several years back I had removed a back seat (two bolts) and needed a roadworthy to sell it. No way until the seat was re-installed.
