    best place to get upgraded suspension for Prado is the downunder Australia. JAOS makes some too

    You can get ARB products here but not sure if they have any for the Prado, I think they should have stuff for it.

    I had a 97 VZJ95, got the supercharger kit from TRD in Seattle for Toyota 4Runner at the time was in a prototype unit. It was direct install as they both use the same engines. We were the first to have TRD supercharged Prado inthe Mideast at the time. The Toyota Manager was a friend of ours and when we should it to him they dealership order two S/C for their cars. We got the JOAS shocks and lift kit ofr and so did the dealer, lol! Well Unfortunatley the vehicle rolled over due to exploding tyre and that was the end of it.

    but the vehicle would put bigger vehicles to shame on the dunes. We could surf the dunes with the A/C on and ppl would think we were crazy. I have pics I will share of the rolled car

    What became of the engine?
    Around how much would a kit cost? There is a Surf in ISL with a supercharger...

    racer....
    i have the same engine... diesel 3.0 1996.
    how much did the supercharger cost from usa, and how was the performance, was it reliable, i hear one should not do alterations to engines, as it reduces reliabilty.
    did u have the 3 door or the 5 door. i have the 5 door.
