Like another patrol user on here I have bitten the bullet and bought a 2008 3L Iveco dual cab light truck, 180HP, 6 sp robot auto. Not a 4x4 though they are worth a motza, and unlike WA there is plenty of 4x4's here in Bris available too.

Got a good buy at $34K at 55K Kms. Good steel tray back built by some mob in Gracemere. Will make a good caravan Tug, far better dare I say than the patrol.

I was almost going to pull the trigger on a Mine spec 2012 Ford Ranger dual cab 3.2L 5 cyl 6 sp auto, but got the Iveco for 5K less. Iveco looks like it just drove out of the showroom. Drove to Biloela Wednesday for a look see and a test drive.

Just got to move the Patrol now to make room in the driveway, no room for 4 vehicles, a caravan and box trailer.

I drove our work one the other day. If I were pulling a big van around Aus, I would not be looking at a Patrol after driving that thing.

It might be only 3 L but it is the one that comes with the 5 L heart.... the 40K/ annual service intervals don't hurt either...But I will still fit an EGR blank plate...

4.5l V8 Diesel giving 10.5 litres 100klms towing a loaded 7x5 box trailer at 115 klms makes me a happy person also. I do miss the luxury of a patrol though and how well they are built.

All I can say is wise up Nissan and fit a V8 diesel.

Yep 4.2 is going up for sale from Thursday, just don't know what to put on it want it gone fast, but don't want to give it away for a silly price. Probably high teens will see it gone fast...

High teens? I reckon that will grow wings and fly pretty darn quick, I would be more inclined with low 20's for a fast sale.
