    ^this is how toyota gets away with selling tired old products (that are never risky, adventuous or class leading) and are able to charge the prices they do*







    *86 excepted. fuck was that a breath of fresh air!

    Towing 3300kg on a 3000kg rated vehicle, then advertising it on the internet..

    As for fuel consumption I recently got 870 km (actual - not predicted) out of a tank on a long trip, pushing it on highways and country roads.

    Also towed a jza70 + spares / tools and tyres to the snowy mountains 1000 from Newcastle, Averaged 12.6L / 100km for the 1400+ km round trip.

    I must have missed the post with his full name, address, and car rego ?

    Or does Nissan just type in "yojimbo" to their database and ban any cunt with the same name that rocks up for service ?
    LSA for towing, APRA N15 for going...

    Personally I'd lean towards the BT-50 GT, can't see the odd looks once you throw the ARB catalouge at it.
    Toyota better release the new Hilux soon, have heard Toyota is going all out on it.

    Petrol only and not really a load carrier, iirc run coils on the rear as it's actually a Suburban with a folding rear wall. I'd love one if it had the Duramax.

    The first 3, and the D40, all clearly show the reason for damage. Too much weight aft of the axle line due to too long a tray.
    The last one is a Raptor that was jumped.

    Fuck the Australian market for not providing us with Raptors!

    Ive driven all of em except an st550wank.
    all but an amarok in anger.

    will never understand why anyone would ever buy oneprivately.

    simply can't beat a hilux. Nothing takes a flogging like them. Seen every one of the current trend of latte faggot utes like this shit crashed, rolled, bogged, etc and they're all just 1970 chassis with a Kia on top and a diesel that has torque approximately 1000rpmafter you wanted it. if you're at all in the slightest serious about a 4wd you get a 75/79/200 series v8t/tt.

    Turbo Diesel - 105kw, 310nm... but only driving 1707kgs

    Not at all considering one, just curious as they represent pretty decent value for money (22,990 driveway at list price)

    "The floods in Thailand slowed production, so they have made up the shortfall by getting some vehicles from the factory in Spain. That's why the vehicle we originally showed you, and the one parked next to yours, is different in so many respects to the one delivered for you. Yours has come from Thailand, those others are from Spain."

    Since I mentioned I bought an Amarok because it was the best in class off road.

    OP cares not for off roading, which is fair enough.

    But two turkeys are claiming the Amarok is not the best off road and that is infact an absolutely absurd statement, yet cannot apparently back up with facts *sigh*

    Like the 3 mine spec hiluxs we blew up in approx 4 months of deployment up north... Apart from some light dune bashing all they did was drive to/from work and a few town runs. They were shit.

    Call bullshit all you like. He didn't know how to reset it nor would he bother. Before his 800km towing trip he said it was saying 6.7... To be fair it doesn't really do any round town work. All 80/100kmh stuff, I think the average speed was pretty high, up around 60kmh. So mostly highway.

    You forgot a couple of 4wd dual cabs there:
    VW Transporter TDI400 Syncro
    Land Rover Defender 130 dual cab
    Toyota Land Cruiser 79 series dual cab
    Mercedes Sprinter dual cab 4x4.
    Isuzu N series 4x4 crewcab
    Fuso Canter 4x4 crewcab.
    All bar the VW are better off road then the other ones, provided they can actually FIT! All except the VW are shit on road, the VW is passable.

    He should be in the Guinness World Record book then as nobody has even come close to those figures, infact they shit on ford's mythical figures from a great height.

    Tell him to keep a log book with real world figures for a month then come back at us with the figures, I bet Lance Armstrong's syringe they are not even close to what you have claimed.

    if he smashes it, the insurance co might enlist the PF detective service. that will fuck yojimbo good!

    anyways, on a more serious note, is the point of your retort to deny that overloading a vehcle ISNT a stupid practice? or just troll?

    Lol - fark me this place has got all serious in a hurry. Nissan service is fucked anyway, I wouldn't expect them to help if I hurt it towing anyway. FwIW the 3300kg was at its last weigh bridge visit. I recon by taking out the 200L of fuel, 40L of water, 30m of chain, 2 anchors, and emergency O2 cylinders, it would have been under the 3000 kg once we hit the road.

    Triton is my pick.

    Factory rear locker. Strong motor. Looks great.

    I like the rear window.

    No worries. How do you want me to authenticate the results?

    Since you know, obviously the reading on the dash is a total lie... ??
