This one featured in Episode 68 of
Modified I’m very familiar with, Chris the owner and his son have joined us on
quite a few tag along tours, many stories have been traded at the neatly
thought out setup on the rear of the 150 Prado along with a few beers and
We talked about featuring this Toyota Prado 150 for about 2 years.
Well here it is 5 years in the making Chris has got this 150 Prado at a very
satisfying state and would tick most 4 wheelers boxes especially other Prado
owners. From the top to the bottom, front to back every cool mod is utilised in
some shape of form.

Burnsie’s top 3 trips
in the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 150
of Australia (Highlights: Fraser Island & Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National
Park to name a few)
Bay “Tag A Long” (Point Culver, Bilbunya Dunes & Twilight Cove)
Unstoppable moment in the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 150:
Going too fast over Indian Head (Fraser Island) bottoming out a few times and thinking I have cracked the radiator……… (Luckily All Good)
Most scary situation in the Toyota Prado 150:
Hartog Island, a mate decided to head off and take the road least travelled,
ended up getting stuck in the middle of a clay pan late in the day and it
starting raining. He finally got to higher ground and got in touch.
there for a number of hours trying to get him out, second vehicle got stuck and
I was the last of the three. Ended up using the trusty WARN winch and sitting
on some Maxtrax slowly pulling them out.
Burnsie’s modification tips:
Research…Research….Research, heaps of places and reviews out there for most vehicles and make sure it is legal, it is getting tougher to fit stuff these days.
Things to lookout for with this model Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 150:
Wheel Guards – Usually if you put a large heavy battery in, and also not fit a
suitable battery tray for this AUX battery spot
the 3.0 litre Diesel it is known to have injector problems between the 100K and
150K there have been a few that have had some grief, get them check often after
three times now, I have cut/torn/pulled my rear ABS sensor cable on 4WD trips,
which means no changing between High and Low range and also you are stuck in
what you were driving. The last two times I have been able to fit the damage
and mend it on the move.
Top 3 tips with the Toyota Prado 150:
1. Needs a lift and bigger AT or MT tyres for off-road use
2. Even with the lift the rear diff sits fairly low so watch out for those diff smashers.
3. A lot of these are school buses and are never taken off-road, so do your research and you will be able to pick up a good one with low km’s to get out in bush or sand wherever you wanna go.
