    that has been on the drawing board for some years now, I doubt it will be produced and I doubt more it will be imported to USA

    It's only a couple of small dents ... it needs to have the scars of having a wing ripped off or a roof caved in to make it abused :lol3

    Just about cant give them away here in aust - had a 110 for 10 years and sold it just recently - decked out just like the camel trophy trucks of years ago. Now im looking for a toyota troopy for my outback travels - ergos in the LDR are terrible and the aircon is shite.

    Something didn't smell right.

    The front brushguard was bent down on the RHS.

    The rear trailer hitch had torn out two retaining bolts, the plate was buckled and there was overspray inside the exterior door handles and door hinges.

    20/20 truck.

    20 feet away at 20 miles an hour its perfect.

    I don't mind dents in a off-road vehicle. Its bad repair jobs that scare me away. If you fix it, fix it right. Where else did they skimp?

    As with most things like this, it's the things you don't see that will bite you in the ass...

    A quick shot of my Land Rover at a car show last weekend - awning, roof tent and hot water shower deployed. The idea behind this truck is to build an expedition vehicle for exploring remote areas of North America in comfort. It also has a winch, dual battery system and an onboard air compressor for airing down and back up.

    Nice setup. One of the few cases where having a lovely model (using the shower) would not necessarily add anything to the picture. :lol3
