Hi Gerrie

Baie welkom

You had a great many 4x4s previously.
Hope you will keep this one a bit longer!
How do you rate the cruisers, having owned a few, compared to the Patrol you have now?

100 vx 4.2 grate motor IFS not working for wat i want but still one of the best
105 gx 4.2 donky grate 4x4 but in sand jou dont do anything think the 4.5EFi will be grate but the price compared to patrol
prado 120 v6 best car i have owned but still IFS
80 gx no lockers ols so cut the roof made game viewer

Im already thinking of getting 4.8 Patrol for family car, the 4.5 is my toy/over lander

still new in the Patrol but that axles is incredible do not think i will brake them, 4.5 bit low on power, but love the way it crawels thinking of adding lower low range
