I'm new here, sort of...

Post by Rossdog » 02 May 2018 09:24

Hi folks

I've been lusting after a Patrol for some years now, and thus have been lurking here on off for a few years.

I've worked with, and been active with 4x4's for many years, as my job for 23 years was as an ecologist/protected area management. I've owned many 4x4's over the years, but never a Patrol. The time is now right to get one, and I'm hoping that this forum will help me in that regard, and I also hope to make positive contributions to the forum in time to come.

I live in the Struisbaai/Agulhas area (Suiderstrand to be exact), so if ever any of you are close by, give me a shout.

Good day Mr Kettles and most welcome
Trust your Patrol will find you soon
Are you looking at Diesel or Petrol? Old'ish or new'ish ?
My personal favourite is 3,0 Diesel .. special the after 2005 models.
For a "one go all over" search .. download TROVIT Cars on your Androiid device.. Then just ensure it searches South Africa .. type in "Patrol" and it shows you ALL the ads for Patrols on most [if not all] of the advertisers [Gumtree; Cars.co.za, Autotrader etc]

Good luck Ross
