I picked this up in a tight spot and instantly had a world of troubles with basically everything breaking, After mostly fixing it up I'm getting ready to take it off road starting with Moreton Island. Everything is running stock except the tires which are running maximum legal size and I must say even stock it looks like a good reliable ride.
It's the diesel 4JG2 engine and runs around at around 12L to 100km which is rather impressive for the size. Power is a bit on the low side but I've climbed a rather nasty incline in low range and although it was a struggle near the top it's rather impressed me.
A few mod I would like to make include swapping the auto locking hubs for manual, long range fuel tank, suspension lift, full bull bar with winch, better recovery points, diff locks, built in inverter, snorkel, CB radio and a stereo.
With the long list of mods, It would probably be cheaper to buy another 4by but after fixing it up theres a certain level of attachment.
