Yes it's an ARB style locally made roof rack, not sure how close in design to the original ARB but at least very stout.

Here a pic of when it was mine (I think it looks better with your round lights Frank)

Thanks Frank! I sometimes miss my Prado!

I had to buy the snorkel here in Bogota (expensive), couldn't find it in the US and I wanted it so bad that couldn't wait, but I'm sure with some research you can find it in the US and bring it (cheaper), part no. is SS185HF. Give a try and let me know.

Sweet I will give it a try... Thanks for the PN. I will attempt to find in the US, I am thinking maybe through an ARB reseller I should be able to find one. If I dont have any luck, how much was your Snorkel?

ALVARO & Tepui - I guess you can say that I am having fun at work... I guess the life shift would be from an Air conditioned Orlando office with a leather desk chair to the nice and comfortable Air conditioned leather seats of my PRADO!!!!!! Cant beat that!!

Tepui - Did you buy your Lift in Chile or did you bring it from the states....???

TODAY IS THE BIG DAY!!!! Lets see what happens....

Unbeatable for sure.

I got the suspension at 4TEC (www.4-tec.cl) the official Old Man Emu dealer for Chile.
