    Been abusing a '58 plate hilux since new, 95% off road use, rear brakes take a hammering, but they are getting filled with gritty water 10-12 times a day up to headlight depth. Prop uj is the only issue really other than normal servicing, now at 78k miles.

    If it was my money, I'd spend it on a hilux.

    I guess we'll need to know what uses you'll put it to.

    Will it do a lot of road use, lots of off road use, over hill and dale or just the odd field? What else will it do? Double as a family car? Is a pickup in the frame? Do you want it to do posh as well? Will it tow? Does it have to have masses of luggage space? Do you need 7 seats? Is MPG important? There's everything from a Fiat Panda 4X4 to a full fat Range Rover and everything in between that COULD fit your remit.

    It will be used for everything from towing vehicles/trailers off roading for the shoot abused for logging and lots of hours in bad terrain. Defo not a rangerover utter poo unless I can employ an ex landy technician.. Would rather keep my fourtrak

    Hmm. Looking at your previous history you like the Fourtrak/Discovery sort of vehicle. Not sure I'd recommend a new Discovery. They are very much improved in the reliability department (eventually), but cost an absolute fortune these days. Certainly a better bet than a Range Rover (unless your kids go to school in Chelsea). Maybe a Nissan Pathfinder?

    If you decide on a pickup, from all accounts these days you can't get better than a Hilux or an Isuzu. You could always go back to what you liked and get a Defender before they stop making them. Might even appreciate rather than depreciate!

    Some left field suggestions: VW Amorok, BMW X5, or how about getting a nice sports saloon, a Beemer or a Merc and keep the Fourtrak?

    There's a skylark in my heart that wants to get out but I'm too damn clever, I only let him out at night sometimes when everybody's asleep. I say, I know that you're there, so don't be sad. Then I put him back, but he's singing a little in there, I haven't quite let him die and we sleep together like that with our secret pact and it's nice enough to make a man weep, but I don't weep. Do you?
