The hinges are the same on Prado and GX470. I confurmed that yesterday with an Prado group in AU. Not sure about latch side yet.Just wondering if a door not designed to have a wheel mounted is strong enough to have a wheel mounted. If the hinges are the same part number as the Prado that should answer the question about the hinges being able to take the extra weight. The price for me also. Its going to limit sales imo but that will be determined. Personally I would rather have it on the door vs a swing out from a bumper. If it works it could open up the door to less expensive bumpers wo swingouts.
Sounds like a solid product then.The hinges are the same on Prado and GX470. I confurmed that yesterday with an Prado group in AU. Not sure about latch side yet.
ACC is saying that with the door closed the mount holds all the weight of the wheel/tire and mount itself. So no extra stress on the hinges while moving. I have a suspicion on how they did that but need to see the rest of the install kit first.
