    I have been looking at a Suzuki and a Mitsi as per below.

    which one would you guys go for, and why? Bearing in mind this would be solely a weekend car, and low to medium 4x4 use.

    So i pulled the proverbial trigger and bought the Pajero it's a mint waggon, and I managed to get it REALLY cheap. Going to pick her up today and I can't wait to get her into the bush.

    been watching all sorts of videos on 4x4'ing as I am totally new to this, seems I am going to need a bit of kit for when I get stuck

    You know what pajero is in spanish right?

    Well done. Now to go get it stuck. The trick is to go get it stuck with people who are capable of recovering you..
