Hi Lu-Wayne,

Welkom! Verstaan die fassinasie met die Patrols. Ek boer op die oomblik met 'n Isuzu (3.0KB nogal) - nothing wrong with it - nogal vinnig en alles. Maar net nou die dag toe sleep ek my beeswa en ek is bietjie haastig, toe moet ek die naald dophou (temp). Shouldn't happen ek weet, en ek het 'n manier om karre te overheat :rolling: (lees my storie op "Jasper" as jy wil). In elk geval, my punt is, ek gaan daai prokureur op die dorp met die 4.2d bakkie nog verlos van sy eiendom!

Ek het Desember 'n 4.2d N/A Patrol (Y61) gekoop. Daai enjin is so hard soos klip. Pel van my het sy 4.2d bakkie op 600,000km verkoop, en nou jare later, loop hy steeds.

Die nuwe 3.0d is 'n reuse verbetering op die oues wat reliability aanbetref (lees thread erens anders op forum - baie leersaam). John du Toit Nissan in Lichtenburg het my een geleen vir 'n dag, toe my Navara 2.5di d/c se prop shaft skielik gegaan het. Kyk, Navara in dorp toe, Patrol uit, voel jy die verskil. Maar die bakkie is gewillig genoeg. En so goed soos wat die Navara die sinkplaatpad vat, die Patrol voel net "heel", as jy verstaan wat ek bedoel. :salute:

Om te vergelyk met die 4.2d N/A wat jy gery het; die 3.0 sal beslis meer responsive wees. Nie 'n resiesperd nie, maar ook nie 'n donkie nie.

Hoop dit help.

Geniet hom! - dink jy weet wat jy gaan doen. :biggrin:

Hello all

Im Hithen. I live in Harare. I bought a Y60 some 12 yrs ago . its the y60 with a td42 t and auto transmission high roof . was looking for an off road vehicle to go fishing with my soon to be father in law who said dont touch it bec its an auto. i drove it and thought no man this is fine! it has good power, stable and comfortable so i bought it. still love it! i then bought another y60 with the short roof. that was very comfortable more so than the high roof but n/a engine. then i bought the y61 also n/a . very nice drive. it rolls more n i dont know why , im sure i'll be asking more about this later! i sold the low roof y60 and kept the other two.

i go to mana pools at least twice a year if i can, and travelled around zim in them . nice cars. people keep telling me to upgrade to a cruiser but im happy the way i am.

regards
Hithen

I dont think the words "cruiser" and "upgrade" are meant to be used in the same sentence... :blonde: :rolling:

You can start a thread here and post some pics of your patrols?

"i go to mana pools at least twice a year if i can, and travelled around zim in them . nice cars. people keep telling me to upgrade to a cruiser but im happy the way i am.

It should be the other way around .. I had a Prado .. sold it at 82,000 Km and now drive a 2000 Patrol 4,2 D with aftermarket turbo and some Michael touch.
So my advice, get rid of the Cruiser and get a Patrol. :biggrin:
