    land rovers help

    I am a novice stalker in Hampshire looking to buy a land rover have the option of long or short wheel base both 1998 vehicles short wheel base 92,000 m private seller I know the garage who have looked after the vehicle, no known probs 3,000 pounds . the long wheel base has only 52,000 miles but is a bit of a shed as company fleet vehicle. 3,800 pounds,
    apart from use for getting in and out of stalking grounds I want to use it for lamping, some people say the long wheel base is less stable being more likly to slide about and have less traction, (its very wet where I live)

    anybody have any ideas

    Yup I had a suzuki jeep on off the proper ones not the hairdressers specials
    It was soft top built a roll bar out of scaff tubing big tyres awesome little tool only sold it as I got a rangey cheap

    Where we used it was literally a swamp, we got it stuck on one occasion but 3 of us pushed it out up to our knees in mud !!! Try doing that with a landy no chance

    I had a 110 pick-up which was OK but there was always something going wrong with it or needing doing. OK, parts are cheap but it gets a bit tiresome after a while
    Bought a double cab Hilux, much better bit of kit . Far better in mud than the 110 as it has a proper diff lock to drive both rear wheels. My landy diff lock only locked up the centre diff and if you were traversing a slope the uphill wheels would spin and you wouldn't get anywhere
