Fuel economy.


It's Awesome! — This is a 4by designed for orrfoad use. It is not going to win you any races. It is not going to stop you on a dime. It has developed some squeaks and rattles, but what car doesn't It has dent(not my fault) from being used for what it was made for. It drinks lots of fuel which sucks. But you can pick one up fairly cheap, there are endless mods ro be done, The engines in these patrols will chug on, and on, and on. Strongest drive-line in the business, and absolutely fantastic offroad!!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Very durable, excellent off-road


A few rattles develop over time, brakes could be better


The Best 4wd On The Planet At The Time. — A great 4WD. Nice, but thirsty 4.2L petrol engine. Good performance for it's size and era. Bullet proof gearbox with syncro on all gears, including reverse. Diffs unbreakable, rear LSD is the best in the business. Great coil spring suspension. Braking and handling reasonable for it's size, although the brakes (4-wheel discs) don't cope too well with large tyres. Never had any real problems except for plenty of squeaks and rattles that developed over time. Dust sealing could be better, especially around the rear tailgate doors. Overall, highly recommended for someone looking for a comfortable, reliable and capable 4WD vehicle.
