Well I do not one ive had 3x4.2 td Patrols on the farm and found very reliable 4wds but very expensive to run and maintain and really cant do anything more than a 4cyclinder can.Nissan were notorious at specifying towing capacity to only find there tow bars are 500kg less than the stated tow capacity.Bring that up to the stealer and watch them try dodge the bullet.The mines in our area got out of Toyotas to many probs with both Lux and Cruiser for the money outlay.Mahindra got the last laugh over them all...Anyway I got 3 MN Tritons :D :D :D .

Then I would trade in the triton. ......... Maybe

I saw one on the back of a flatbed tow truck going up the M1 to Brissy a couple weeks ago... wondered if it was a test vehicle or more to the point hoping!
Ross lewewin motors have one at Ipswich as a daily driver.

Meh. Discovery had 4t tow capacity 20 years ago. Plus a centre diff that could be unlocked in low range so you could have 10 forward gears and actually start, with a big trailer, up a hill on a hard surface. Or use low range to hold speed on downhill runs.

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?
