  1. i would say take a l200 and a rodeo for a drive and compare, l200 seem to go through parts for no reason, rodeo build quality is good and comfy to drive

    what 4x4

    Ive had a few! only used a RR p38 diesel nothing newer ok for towing but problems with them are the airbag suspension and compressors have a shelf life not sure about new ones, new ford ranger is supposed to be a really good truck not sure bout towing

    what 4x4

    if i did lots of towing id get a landy but cab room and reliability are a problem, hilux are bomproof reliable had one for 4 years and only needed regular oil change and flew through all mots good off road, not great towing. mitsubishi tend to go through parts and engine probs on earlier models. navara avoid 02 to 04 plates as have dodgy engine. fourtrak are good but rust nissan patrol drink a lot. thats all i have experienced with 4x4s

  16. hilux are good allrounders but crap at towing! if you go for one get one with solid axles if you go off road alot if not any one will do.Defenders are good off road and tow extremely well but always seem to have something going wrong with them plus the cab is cramped. l200 are ok but dont seem to last as well being used off road. nissans are sweet, lots of power and space but yet to see the test of time going off road alot. fords are surprisingly good off road but lack some clearence and tow pretty well. To be honest whatever you pick choose wisely as all of them have there faults, just check they have service history, a sound engine and have not been abused. good luck
