I agree on the airbags in the rear. I have got spacers up front the smaller size available from Stofpad and have airbags in the rear. The rear airbags gave aound 30mm lift and the front spacers around 40mm lift and is a great combination that will not break the bank.
You can fit 2 jerry cans in the 3rd row seats storage space which would be good for water storage as well, and will have some space for a recovery rope as well to pull out the Hilux when he gets stuck
For travelling consider a packing shelf to make you overlanding easier and if you have a fridge a slide and a plug point in the rear would be a good addition.
I have some plans here somewhere on the packing shelf I think under members mods if I recall correctly.
Have a great trip and enjoy pulling the Hilux out,
Thanks very much. I have removed the 3rd row of seats and plan on putting my spare parts and some of the recovery gear in there. Might try fit some extra water in there aswell.
The Spacer and Airbag combo sounds like a good plan. I'll definitely chat about that with the installer.
I was actually looking for shelving/packing DIY plans for the back. I will be putting in a dual battery setup with a 55Litre Fridge in the boot and will try make a packing/shelving setup to work around this. I'll go look for you post about the packing shelf.
I'll definitely send pics of the Hilux being pulled out.
