My brother has just bought a Prado 120 GXL and wants to put a Codan atu on the back. Does anyone know of a source of a mount that would enable him to do this ?
Has anyone got one fitted ? (pix ?)
I have no knowledge of the Prados at all. Looks to be a nice CAR, diesel turbo, bought for towing a van. I don't think he wants to get it dirty :)))

TIA

G'day

Go here. I purchased one of their rear mount HF brackets for my Patrol. Well made and easy to fit.

Hi John, sounds interesting if it will fit the prado with the solid wheel cover. I guess it bolts over the wheel carrier studs ?

The ones by Aust 4wd storage systems look nicely engineered - to make them, they position the bracket so its nicely held firm by the spare wheel with a minimum of steel.

I made my own on the 90series Prado, but after spending a whole weekend to get it right, I wished I'd just bought one. I think they are zinc plated and powdercoated.

Cheers
Phil

Footloose,

I have one from 4wd storage systems for sale if your brother is interested that was made for my 120 Prado formounting behind the spare. It was for a barrett autotune which is a bit shorter than the codan so the codan would be above roof level that is the only thing that could be a problem. With the barret it came level with the roof.

Dave, thanks for the offer but above roof level would pose a problem.

I have a 90 series Prado with a Codan aerial on the spare wheel.
The bracket was made by "Kaymar".
