Have a TX440 UHF in my GU and was wondering if there is anywhere or anyway to fit it to the Cruiser. I am not too keen on spending another $450 on a TX3400 if I can avoid it. If I cannot where is the best place to mount a 3400?
Cheers

How big is it, if it fit in a nissan surely it would go in a Toyota, has it got a roof consol, if it hasn't that's what i would be getting

Doug,
I took the gen double DIN stereo out of the nissan and fitted a cd player and the TX4400. The toyota has a 6 stack MP3 Cd player (double DIN)that I obviously want to keep and it is a lease car so I do not want to do too much damage to the vehicle. It has a small overhead console with map lights and sunglasses holders - I think it would look very tacky mounted up there without a custom console.
Cheers

Darned if know where you could put it , [ no won't tell you to put it there ] I have seen some mounted between the seats but must near put your back out to use it, what about on the trans' hump/tunnel, nup need holes there too eh, might have to flog it off and get one with remote head, leave it too you .

Hi Nick,

If you go the remote head, LCOOL have a page on a clever way of installing - I've done mine the same and it reduces clutter significantly.

Radio is still operable even with the "lid" closed

H20,

I have just purchased a TX 3400 for my LC100 and I have mounted the remote head it infront of the gear shift using velcro.
I picked mine up new off of ebay with an antenna for less than $400.
However I am looking at moving the head to just below the a/c controls where I have 3 blanked out switch holes, as it is early days and I am not too sure if I like it where I have put it.
The body of the radio fits nicely in the transmission console.

Hope that gives you some help

Craig,
Looks like I will have to buy a TX3400. We have some of our work STD 100 series vehicles that have the TX3400 mounted to the 3 blanked out switches and I don't think it is the best position. Check out http://www.commex.net.au - click UHF, then TX3400. They pull out the ash tray and screw it in there and when you remove it and put the tray back in you cannot see any holes. They mount the brains under the gear leaver centre console area and apparently you can hear the speaker ok. Prob the best place I have seen it mounted.
Cheers
Justin
