The roof console does require you to drill four small holes in the sheet metal for secure fastening. No big deal really. The most difficult part was sorting out the wiring...
A few photos of the console in place with iCom 440 Pro radio.
I originally had this posted over on a Aussie forum (LCOOL.org = LandCruiser Owners On Line) for some help but may be useful for 100 series owners here considering a roof console.
Just wondering if anyone else has had issues fitting an Outback Roof Console?
I picked one up for my 2004 HDJ100R (Turbo diesel IFS) Landcruiser this past Friday but had two issues as follows:
The three wire loom supplied said to connect as follows:
- Red to red
- White to white
- Yellow to yellow
Sounds easy except there is no yellow! I'll get some pictures tomorrow to show you the factory Toyota wiring colours. I tired a few different configurations but only managed to get the master console on/off switch to work the led lights. I could not get it to switch individually or get the lights to come on when the door opens.
On the rear mounting bracket there are two nutserts (threaded inserts) to which the two rear mounting bolts for the console thread in with the console on the roof. The only catch is that the bolts provided seem to be about 20 mm too short. There are no other fasteners provided that fit.
Has anyone else had similar issues during fit up?
Managed to get it sorted last night. In the roof of the 100 there are two connectors as follows:
One two wire connector with these colours:
White with black line
One three wire connector with these colours:
Solid red with grey bands
White with black line and grey bands
Green with grey line and grey bands
To wire up your console do as follows:
- Put the roof console red wire into the red wire from the two wire connector.
- Put the roof console yellow wire into the white with black line wire from the two wire connector.
- Put the roof console white wire into the green with grey line and grey bands wire from the three wire connector.
That way the dome lights on the console will operate when the doors are open or via the individual switches on each light. The master switch at the front of the console will also kill all the lights (i.e. what used to be the "off" button on the factory console).
Sorry no pictures to post yet but I did take a few. I'll get to posting them up shortly.
I did have to source longer bolts for the rear of the console (ie 10 to 15 mm longer that the ones supplied with the console).

Very nice rig you have there, just what I am looking to do to mine...when I get it.
Out of interest how do you find a black car in the Australian heat/sun??
You mentione having to drill 4 holes intot he roof to mount the console i assume the holes are into the cross members and not through the roof??
I am looking to fit one and thought i would ask.

Yes, the holes are into a sheet metal cross member not the roof. Pretty straight forward really, key is to get yourself a drill bit stop (small collar with a set screw in it to limit the dept of penetration of the drill bit).
