Many thanks to your and everyone else who participated to this thread. I went through it with interest and enjoyment.
I drive an LR4 SDV6 8 gears. It has few basic mods for all terrain driving.
I would like to couple it with another truck that can safe, reliable and capable to play off road close to home and equally to take me and my family to long expedition trips in remote area (from Iceland to Africa passing from east Europe).
Here in UK the easiest and most popular choices would be a Defender 110 vs an Hilux 3.0. Obviously diesel.
However I want something, different, something better and something that would please more my (teenager) eyes. A classic. Hence the debate is between buying an European 463 (91-98) auto, either 320 Petrol or 300 Turbo Diesel versus a Toyota HZJ 4.2 NAD Diesel. Probably enough to open a dedicated thread.
Thanks for this so far. I look forward to read more.
