JK or prado?

g'day all,


Well it looks like I've got a big decision to make my wife and I have a Wrangler TJ and love it it's one of a kind and tends to go further than most of my mates Toyota's go. Granted its on 35s and has got a fair lift but no lockers and does fantastic. 

However we are looking at going for a 4 dr JK (hopefully a rubicon used 3.6 pentastar) or a prado.

Huge differences off-road (i'd imagine) ive never driven a prado but by judging the weight the suspension travel to the lack of a front axle etc its easy to see their different  beasts. The prados fuel consumption seems so much better and this along with the size difference are the pros for going the prado the Cons are fairly obvious.

One question I have is whats the jk like on fuel in the real world. Also if anyone runs 33's or 35's please chime in. We probobly wouldnt go 35s again as fun as they are off road on road on the tj im getting avg 13-18 l/100

Please let me know what pros and cons are you guys can come up with cheers! Josh

Hey there. First of all, NICE TJ. 35s on that wheelbase look so massive! :)

I've got a Wrangler JKU 2012 (Pentastar, 5-Gear Auto, 3.73 axle gear ratio, 2.5" lift) and I had 315x70R17 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ. I got about 13-14 L/100km around town, about 11.8L/100km on the high way and offroad up to 17 L/100km. Now with a roof rack I lost about 1L/100km. 

Hope that helps. Can't wait to see what you are going with. Both will be fine :)

Joshbro OP

thank you! Much appreciated yeah they look a little big for it great mods on yours to mate, well thats a fair bit better than the tj. Does anyone know how much better a wrangler is off road than a prado?

Hey Josh. Any updates on your buying decision? Did you go for the Prado or the Jeep? Have you done any test driving? Whether you're in the area (South of Brisbane) you could come for a test drive in my JKU. :)
