Hi Bernard,

I have seen that vehicle in one of the adds as well.
I am no 4.5 expert but I am not sure if that is a 2003 model. The two tone colour scheme I have seen in the earlier pre-2000 models. If you like it then go and have it checked out; check the vin no (which will tell you the manufacturing date). You will see if the vehicle is good or not..... I know you have a very good car-knowledge..

If in any doubt get Graham from G-Tech involved. He will check it out for you if you manage to get the vehicle to him.
Price wise I think there is room for negotiation. I would say it should be sub-100K. :mytwocents:

The body shape is 1998 - end 2003, but the colours of the trim are ( in my opinion ) resprayed. The silver bumper and door rubbers I doubt were originally silver. That blue is a really nice colour though!!

There was a "facelift" from 2004 where the tail lights were slightly different and a few gentle changes were done to the front too.
Regards

Mine is also a 2003 GL. Which is also up for grabs. Not officially yet as I want to replace the rubbers on the passenger door first and also the gaslifts on the bonnet, but if you guys could keep an ear on the ground in the meantime it would be great!

It has 212k km's, 2" lift kit, air suspension all round, dual battery system (less the battery which is kaput unfortunately), free flow exhaust, brand new muddies (which I'm still very impressed with Cedric!), clutch was done less than 10 000km ago and mechanically it's perfect. She's got a couple of scratches here and there, but nothing serious for an old girl! I'm hoping to get around R100k.

I am off course only selling it in order to assist the upgrade to a 4.8 and would like to see it going to a good home!

I'll add some more pics at a late stage

Another way to check the year is on the white cloth tabs of the seat belts.

Hi almal

Ek het uitendelik my 4.5 op gumtree adverteer (voel of ek my vrou verneuk :biggrin: )

http://www.gumtree.co.za/a-cars-bakkies ... 0073383909

Soos ek al genoem het, enigste rede vir verkoop is 'n gat wat jeuk vir 'n 4.8! Sal natuurlik verkies as sy in die forum familie kan bly, en prys is natuurlik onderhandelbaar :thumbup:
