    Y62 all the way! I love mine. It is truly awesome. Currently travelling around Australia towing a 3 tonne van and averaging 25L/100. Mind you I'm sitting on 110 or so and not shy about giving it heaps of right foot when I need to. If i sat on 90-100 most of the way and was being conscious about economy, I recon I could easily get 20-22/100. The HDJ100Ris a decent vehicle, but the Y62 is next level. I won't be going back to diesel any time soon.

    Heres a pic of mine towing the van through sand dunes at a free camp near Uluru with 48psi still in the tyres. Didn't raise a sweat. Worth it just for the view.

    The customer.

    The 7 speed box does help a lot with economy, but for towing something like that a soot chugger would have an advantage.

    I've never really felt the need to travel to the red centre but that view does look pretty special.

    TD42 is much smoother and quieter than a ZD30 in all conditions from idle to full noise. Much quieter and smoother running than any modern clacketty common rail motor. The old school mechanical injection is inherently quieter and the cast iron deadens the noise much better than alloy, plus it's a naturally more balanced straight six. Pull up next to any modern diesel and you won't even be able to hear your TD42 running.
    And TD42s are no worse in fuel consumption than most CRDs, in many cases they're better. The CRD ZD30 was notorious for using more fuel then the previous Di.

    I reckon you would hear a TD42 over the top of my TDV8. Even with my muffler delete.

    If you get a td42 you have to set aside $6-7k for turbo/pump/intercooler/exhaust to make it enjoyable to drive. I get 12-14l/100km depending on what I'm doing, but that is set up for touring and on 35's.

    For your needs I think they are little old though. Haven't been sold since around 2006. Y62 is the only sensible option. They are stupidly large inside.

    i own a 2010 CRD. it's a good car and you don't have to be worried about it going bang, but it's a beast around town. i'd suggest you get a 200 series.

    Must not have been able to hear much with your knees over your ears. Unless of course you were in there by yourself. I only got in there a few times mostly from pub back to camp kinda deal. Was ok with the fridge

    Rated for 3 passengers. Good cup holders. Shyte ventilation. No rear AC in the gxl I had
    I just sold my 100 series after 5 years. I was underwhelmed by the experience

    Best 3rd row seats ive been in (by a huge margin) are disco 3 seats. Insanely comfortable.

    But dont buy a disco 3. Such awesome on paper, such sucky in real life, unless you get someone else to fix it.

    Ended up buying a 2003 GU 4.2TD.

    Stock boost
    2 inch lift
    E Locker Eaton on rear
    3 inch Taipan Exhaust turbo back
    Larger aftermarket Intercooler Top mount
    Catch Can
    Deleted EGR
    ARB Bull Bar Non winch


    Things I need to do:
    Fix Turbo oil return Gasket Flange slight Leak
    Vacuum pump O ring oil leak
    Tune the cunt as its not that good on fuel. Not too bad either.
    Redo Swivel hub and inner axel seal. Slight weep.


    Install Coolant and EGT Guage
    Install boost controller and get tune done.


    overall Very happy with it 180 000kms.
    Not refined as my previous 120 v6 2005 model prado. Feel like im driving a much older car but hey thats the GU body shape and interior.

    120 was reliable. Hope this thing is.

    Tell you what. 4.2td aint cheap. Was tempted to buy 3 litre. 2009 model with 150 000kms and was only 22 000 dollars.


    Overall still cheaper than Toyota 100 series with 1hdfte. That price I bought Gu for I can only find a 360 000km example and higher 100 series.

    Definitely upload pics tonight.

    Picked up a 2000 model GU TD42 yesterday, bog standard second owner, 318k kms for a steal (I think ) 18k! I have to say they are not a bad rig to drive, alot smaller than my 80 but the 80 def goes harder (but mines not stock).

    Nice work! Td4.2ti are solid . Hence their resale value... 3 inch exhaust boost and intercooler they go hard!

    Thats awesome to hear. Are they truly reliable as everyone make them out to be? The TD4.2ti.... Have you done beach driving with it? Coolant temps okay?

    I've done 130000km in mine including cape x3, simpson x2, gulf, high country x2 plus many more. Previous owner also went around Aus in it. Most of those kms and trips have been on a bigger turbo and fuel pump running approx 28psi boost. It's done half the trips with 3" lift and 35's too. Never broken anything. It's done all the usual 4wding as well like little red at glasshouse and camp rd/ old hilux hill at LCMP. No issues to report beside getting a hole in the radiator and cooking it. Now run an engine guardian.

    Never had engine temp issues while it was stock or had a smaller front mount, but with the 600x300 front mount it gets hotter when doing continuous hard work on hot days. I did change to a copper/brass radiator that doesn't work as well, plus my fan shroud is nearly none existent so I'm not helping it out at all.

    What a weapon. I cant believe stock bottom end can run that boost. Though it is a diesel. Built tough. Get your fan Shroud back on and upgrade to a Nissan Skyline G35 fan. Straight bolt onto fan clutch and flows wayyyy more ....
    I cant wait. Fraser Trip booked for January.. Then hopefully Cape york!
