Yeah, I've read your thread about which one to buy.
You can see my preference, 4.2 Diesel, DX(base model).
Get one basic and do it up the way you want.
This one has towed a 21' van around Oz and a few trips in the
bush, as long as you don't want to go too fast it's great!

We've got a 96 Mitsubishi Magna Sedan....

And I've apparently inherited my father's "precision packing" genes, judging by the amount of crap I managed to take with us on our trip.... there wasn't a spare cubic centimetre of room to be found when I was done loading the car..... :lol:

Good thing that we've only got the one kid, but I do think that we will end up upgrading to a 4WD, even if only a beat up second hand model.... I would like to get a Waeco, and I don't think that'll work out with the cars we own presently....

Damn, spending money again..... :lol:

4.2 Litres of Turbo Diesel torque and fun!

Just in the process of doing a drawer system for the back and incorperate a fridge slide for the CF-80

Oh an i have to fit four 11" sub woofers and 6 amplifiers in the back some how too :P theres also two 8" subs going in the doors with 6.5" mid bass and 4" mids with some Vifa XT-25 tweeters going up front. And working out how to get an 8" head rest monitor and a single din DVD processor into the dash.

:P

You should get the LWB wagon ... that's a serious contender with me atm. Just waiting for the Rubicon to come out with a TD.

I spent a bit of time looking at the LWB this weekend. I'm not sure that I like it asthetically (sp?). Looks too much like an old bus.

I don't mind the look and I know from some of the trips we do with ppl who own Wranglers that they are a very capable 4x4. The older one's were useless for towing but again, very capable offroad.

I'm not in the market just yet for a new fourbie ... I still love my old Paj ... :armsup ... but in about 5 yrs I will trade up and so far it's between the wranlger (again if it comes out with the TD in the Rubicon) and the 70 series cruiser.

Cheers ...

I have the all purpose all round camping vehicle the company car. Contrary to popular belief that these vehicles are capable of handling any terrain, I have only driven it on suitable 2WD roads. I am looking to trade it in for a V6 outlander in the coming months as there are few places like Krombit Tops (CQ) that I would like to go.

It pulls the CT without a problem, though the fuel consumption goes through the roof.

This is the car at Cania Gorge. I haven't actually taken a picture of the camper trailer yet but I will endeavour to do so.

Company cars go faster and higher!

Isn't funny you never manage to scratch a company car either.

But you always manage to scratch your own very easily.
Any man, in the right situation, is capable of murder. But not any man is capable of being a good camper. So, murder and camping are not as similar as you might think.
