Troop Carrier Accessories

Hi all
I am lucky enough to be ordering a brand spanking new 2 door 5 seat GXL troopy.
I am after suggestions for fit out accessories. For example, I was thinking originally of getting the genuine Toyota bull bar, side rails & winch, but now realise that the bull bar does not have hi-lift jack or any jacking points for that matter.
I would like to put the spare on a dual holder with the high-lift & light assembly, but do I really need the extra weight? Then suspension will need upgrading also. Why not put the 2nd spare & jack in the back?
Then what options do I have for rear protection? Anyway, hopefully you get the idea...
At the end of the day, I have travelled with troopy owners that have had very little upgrades/accessories & with careful driving, take the vehicle anywhere.
Obviously, it's personal preference for some things, but a few ideas wouldn't go astray.

I would have a look at the forums. There are members on it who have some very nicely setup VDJ76rs ...

A good suggestion would be to take your car to the nearest ARB or TJM dealer and all your problems will be sorted. (at a cost of course).
Before you sign off on the vehicle you can get a GVM upgrade officially stamped but ONLY before you pick up the vehicle. Can't be done after it leaves the yard for the first time.
Happy motoring.

Hi Stef,

i am looking for the same truck but it seems Toyota Australia doesn't know what is the price for the 2013 model (standard diff/locks). Is that true?
