Nice touring rig. . I don't think you see many 40's as why would you keep driving a 40 when you could have a 70?

Completed the first outback trip, Prado performed well but the ground clearance and tires are marginal. It goes in for a 2" lift and bigger/better tires next week.

Lots of 70 series rigs down like the utility rig we used in the photos. We call them pickup trucks with beds, they call them Utes with trays. The shot coming down the hill is considered a HUGE obstacle here, anyone that has been to Moab would yawn on this. You really have to dodge a lot of critters on the road. You appreciate the snorkel when you have to cross low spots in the road that flood with very small amounts of rain. Amazing scenery though, the blackest nights you have ever seen if its overcast. On clear nights the stars are so bright you can see your shadow.

A few more photos. Dee with Arthur, one of the rangers from the local aboriginal tribe. Kangaroos, Wallaby (which is a smaller species of kangaroo) and a yellow footed rock wallaby.
