Hi J 

Got a pal in Inverness with both a land cruiser 4.2td and a patrol 4.2, pretty sure he’s looking to thin out a couple as he’s also running another land cruiser, I’ll get details and pics if they are of any interest. 

Regards 

Dave 

Dave, bought the patrol on Wednesday and it must be the best truck in the UK!

Well I had a chap pop by today in a Discovery 2 so I took the opportunity to sit in it to see what the space was like and it wasn't good. There is no chance I'd be able to drive it with boots on, and any kind of PPE (chainsaw trousers for example). Very cramped driving position. 

 

Does anyone have any experience with Mercedes Sprinter 4x4s? I much prefer vans than cars/normal 4x4s and whilst they are as rare as rocking horse sh*t, they tick all the boxes. As standard they have a low towing capacity, but with an uprated tow hitch will tow 2800/3000kg

I ask regarding the Sprinter as there is an immaculate, one owner, full Mercedes history, never towed 313 MWB 4x4 close to me for £14k. More than I wanted to spend, but perhaps worth shelling out for.

if your looking at that money then a disco 4 has to be the way, i know you got stung with one before, but if you are planning on doing some mileage then they are comfy and go like stink. Im 6'5 and its the only vehicle ive sat in where i dont need the seat all the way back!
