4wd tippers? Which is best?

Recommended Posts

So currently have a isuzu with homemade high sides but needing something newer and with a tipping alloy box on the back.


Do I go for hilux/isuzu, etc etc with a chip box and updated springs or a 110/130 with box and updated springs?


Seems the prices are similar but the 110/130 has higher mileage on the for the same price. I'm thinking that the 110 would take more weight than the jap versions??


Any thoughts?

I'd say the Jap truck would have higher load capacity and will also be much more reliable. I wouldn't touch a 110/130 to be honest

They're all a waste of money. Can't carry diddly squat.

Better off with greedy boards on your 4wd.



I have a homemade box on my standard tub and it only gets about 2 cube at best.

Looking for a single cab and larger box to get more chip on

Land Rover will be best off road and take the inevitable knocks more gracefully, also being plated to 3.5t should carry more, 3.5t towing capacity is always handy too
