    That is about what I'm getting from my old 3.1 Isuzu! Mind you the Isuzu is small enough to get around off road here, where your wagon would not fit.

    I'd have one in a heart beat to be honest, just for ride and towing. The Isuzu is a pretty good ride though and I'm very impressed with it's running gear for off road.

    Well gave the mitsi a bashing over the long weekend in the Hunua ranges with my caravan on the back. Got into the lower Matngatawhiri camp and had a blast with the Auckland black powder club, and coming out there is a few steep gravely bits but no problem, just flicked on 4x4 and difflock , went up like a D4D bulley, I`m happy as a dog with two cocks.
