Hi all,

Just got delivery of a brand new Milford cargo barrier for my son's 4 runner off e-bay.

Went to install it and quickly worked out it is to hard for me to do properly. I even read the instructions.

Can any one in Melb (Sth Eastern suburbs) recommend where to go to get this professionally fitted. My preference would be not to go to Milford themselves as I was not satisfied with there customer service.

I need to get this done fairly urgently, as I have made a set of cargo drawers for the 4 runner and can't fit them until the barrier is in.

thanks all in advance,

baldman

Toyotas usually have the marks under the uphlostery to drill for the barriers. At least the croozers do. Is a bit fiddly but not that hard really if you take it quietly and mark the floor holes correctly and DONT use the kiddies seatbelt holes
Pull your trim around the windows and see if there are little dents like a centre punch mark as thats what mine has.

Graham, paid $250 dollars for it still in the original box (including cartage from NSW).

although 2 days later one sold for $120 but we must take our opportunities when they arise

thanks for the advice
