G'day all, has anyone mounted a Codan NGT in a new Toyota tray top with the new dash? If so where have you mounted the remote head?

The ones I've seen Andrew have been in a roof console.Check out the "Department of the Interior" consoles.

Cheers Mick

Dont know what your Tranny console is like but I made a metal strip that fitted along the side of it in my 100ser.

I attached it with the screw that joins the console halves together by front of the seat, near the front bent up a flap that went under edge and held it in place

On the top had another flap that the mic cradle was attached to and it sat in there where I could actually read it while driving if need be.

The guts of the radio was attached to cargo barrier.

Was too awkward to get mic up in roof console.

Hi Andrew
I have the earlier dash model and my mike cradle is on the dash low down immediatly to the left of where the steering wheel fit into the dash.
The radio is attached to the back wall behind the seat.
There are plenty of grommets for cables.

Hi Andrew,

Not a Toyota (some would say a Toyota recovery vehicle...) but I mounted my remote head/mic (what do you call it on an NGT...?) onto a 1" RAM ball and then put it on a short RAM mount down next to the shifter.

Great spot for it. Easy to access but out of the way.



RAM mounts are fantastic and I use them for lots of things on kayaks, in 4wd or boat. They aren't expensive and if you want to mount other things parts like the extension arm are interchangeable.

What I was trying to describe puts the mic in about the same place WITHOUT drilling holes, something I hate doing

I'm not averse to holes particularly for something permanent.

By the way. Junction box & speaker are under front seat. Main unit is on cargo barrier. 9350 is between spare wheel & door.

Unless you keep the car forever at some time they will need repairing

I have Ram mounts as well but they are attached under the front seat mounting bolts so dont leave traces.
I found the speaker under the seat wasnt clear enough and mounted a small one in corner of the dash. (With Velcro) LOL

A 4.2TD GU is possibly the last decent 4wd wagon that will ever be made. (maybe the GXL V8 5 seater is a contender too.)

Why would I ever get rid of it?

Though the way prices are going, it could be the first vehicle I ever make a profit on!

Thanks all. I mounted the NGT on the right side just above the air vent in the old LC. Still waiting for the new Landcruiser.Image Could Not Be Found
