:imnewhere:

Hi Guys, been going through all the threads and posts for a while looking for as much info as i can on my dream 4x4 and finally decided to join and interact with everyone.

I Currently drive a Ford Ranger 2.2 4x4 but looking at getting a Patrol to use for towing my boat, fishing and the odd off-road adventure! I plan to keep the ranger for day to day use as i could never afford the fuel bill of the Patrol as a run around!

After reading through many posts i see the only real complaint or problem with the Patrol's are the Fuel bill but otherwise they sound bulletproof and real value for money! My only past experiences with Nissan is when my old man owned a couple Nissan Safari Bakkies that he towed his boats with, they served him really well until they rusted away!

So...... Im looking for either a 4.2, 4.5 or 4.8 and my budget is around 80 to 100k which is probably more in the 4.2 and 4.5 market. I would like a vehicle as standard as possible as i plan to mainly use it as a tow vehicle and will see about mods later. So if anyone here has one for sale or knows of any in my price range please drop me a message!

Welcome.

Tinus is the man to talk to about finding a Patrol. But he will probably only respond next week. He is currently part of the forum River Trip cruising the Limpopo rivers.
