    70k lures hahahahahha.OK how about 70k boats?Would you feel the same?
    Or would you never buy one incase it got scratched?.It doesnt matter how much my truck cost me i treat it the same as a 5k shitter or a 70k new truck.

    We had a early 2007 model up untill last october when some dumb bitch pulled out on the missus and the missus hit her at 80 clicks. Result was a written off hilux but the missus and our then 2 year old walked away unharmed.

    Depends how big the boat is also. We have been using a Nissan X-Trail for a long time now. Small, less fuel, but a huge towing capacity for it's size.

    in my opinion nothing beats a 4.2 turbo diesel patrol, they have the toughest drive train of all, really depends what you want to do in it, if you intend on doing hard core 4x4 go for the patrol with the solid front axle and coil springs, if its more for towing and light duty touring, then the cruiser with its IFS front end will be more comfortable.

    if you really want to go 4wheeling ya cant go past a modified sierra.
    diff locks are $250 and they are unstopable:D the best of both worlds is to have a pajero for the HWY and light bush work, the 3.2 diesel/auto is great to drive, then have a modified sierra for the bush.

    How much did you have to spend (ball park) to modify the zooks suspension?Im thinking of making some longer shackles for mine.Just enough to lift it 2 inches.Mine has no roof or roll bar,so i havent given it a good workout on rough stuff.The drag link is bent like a banana and it steers real good one way and let just say not so well other.Next trip i will have to fix the link and free the stuck handbrake.I pushed it with my patrol a few metres and it wouldnt unlock.

    honestly mate i have less then $300 in the suspension, it is just a collection
    of bits that i had laying around. a drag link is around $100 for a new genuine one from these fellas.
    you will just need to know if you have a wide track or a narrow track.

    Personally I believe the GQ Patrol with the 4.2 D engine is probably one of the toughest 4wd ever made. The engine and box especially have been quoted as truck parts several times to me. However i have heard a lot of problems with the 3.0L models. I do not know too much about the landcruisers so I wont comment.
