In europe they are called ferelanders in the states I belive they went under the name LR2 I think. Arguably the worst landrover there is in terms of 4x4 (actually an AWD) as it has some weird floating viscous coupling unit my garage always like to remind me how crappy an invention it is. However they are so damned cheap 2nd hand as the first incarnation had many problems and put many people off running them. This model has the bmw td4 engine and is alot more reliable than people think also it was Europes most popular SUV at the time so spare parts at scrappers are also ten a penny. Comfy as fuck to drive and a little more punt on roads per engine size than the average discos of the same age. She a demon in snow and can outperform defenders/discos on flat wet field terrain. Also new Discovery Sport is really just the freelander/evoque rebranded

I feel stupid that I've never taken a photo of my car on the outside while camping.

2016 Subie Forester. Gotten me through everything I've wanted, including overlanding in really rough areas in Arizona. Owned it for almost two years now. Live in NYC, drove all around the country. Did NY -> Ohio -> Georgia -> Florida -> Texas -> Missouri -> Colorado -> Arizona -> Yellowstone Park. Picked up a whole bunch of friends and we all camped and shit.

Fucking love this thing.

Looking clean. I've got a 2000 Accord ex 2 door that I try to make /out/. I spend a lot of time lusting over a new 4Runner so I can tow, but I can't justify it until this shitbox finally dies. 206k miles, just replaced the ignition coils, and it needs front brakes, two tires, and the motor mounts replaced. Haven't decided if I'll do any of those things or wait until they get worse.

'03 Santana SJ40. basically a Suzuki Samurai with a 80 horsepower engine (G13BB, same as the Suzuki Jimny). Small, 4x4, leafsprung car that'll get you to places most other 4x4s are to big and heavy for. Great for trolling jeep and landrover drivers - They normally get stuck before I even need to shift to 4-wheel drive.
>>
>>1179501
ZJ, I recommend 96-98, and a 4.0.
Never pay over a grand for one, they are not worth more.
Be sure to get a 4wd, they sold them in 2wd as well.
That particular one was $800 with inspection, taxed for a year, and A/C that just needed a recharge. I later took it to Vegas and back, and it only broke down three times.

I will definitely not get one at that price but I've found some at decent price, problem is that around here cars get an oldtimer status when they are 25 years or older and it spikes up the price a lot. Thanks a lot though, I'll probably get one sooner or later.

In the US the model was known as the Freelander (gen you own) but was later updated to LR2 (gen you pictured).

1st and 2nd gen Tacos are great, that's why the resale is so high. Tough to find one that doesn't have over 200k miles on it. 2005+ have timing chain instead of belt so a bit less regular maintenance (need to replace belt at 100k for 1st gens). Not really a big deal though. 2nd gens have a bit more power. The new Tacos have had some teething issues, if I was going to buy a new one I'd hold off another year. They'll get them squared away though (I used to work for Toyota when the 2nd gen came out, they are very proactive about improvements on the line/performing bulletins on cars to address any trending issue).

I have a similar setup. My truck bed is 7' and the sleep platform is 6'9".

I'm 6'6" and have learnt to live with it.
Just sleep with a heavy wool blanket and tuck your it under your legs in so you're not inclined to toss and turn or stretch your toes during the night.
Keep your arms straight and close to your body.

You'll get used to it eventually. If you still have trouble get one of those mummy sleeping bags.

comfort wasn't even invented in 1981 in the soviet union but its not made for comfort.

Most of the parts were the same as when it rolled out of the factory, still drove it across the kola peninsula winter time with no failure when i bought it.

I have changed alot of those parts now to newer russian made UAZ Hunter parts, the quality on the newer parts are lacking.

When it runs it really runs well, i personally have only had problems with the electrical system.

all in all great fun to drive but certanly not a daily driver during winter time, it will run there's no doubt about it.. but you will freeze.

Is a prius an option?
>>
>>1181418
if you want something fairly new a Chevrolet Colorado
a family member had a 2 door 4 cylinder automatic 2 wheel drive and it was good enough
the bed is too small for me. I fill an 8 foot bed and sometimes wish it was bigger
the Colorado held up to regular use with a 1 thousand pound trailer

>is a prius an option

>>1181418
unless you intend to do serious offroading, my suggestion to outdoors people is always a minivan. good gas milage, plenty of enclosed space for storing all sorts of equipment if the seats are removed, a true 7 seater if needed, a cozy space for sleeping at the trailhead before early morning starts, and a comfortable drive too if you get anything remotely modern.

at least in the states, honda odyssey and toyota sienna are robust cars that will last 20 years with only routine service, and can be found inexpensively on the secondary market
>>
>>1181450
This, i used to laugh at the idea, but my friend's dad spent the summer with us in his toyota van, and it had just enough clearance to get through most primitive roads. Had plenty of room for him and his bicycle, and got decent mileage to boot.

but my minivan has 4 wheel drive and good all terrain tires. it can push mud with the bumper. I got it stuck once but I was actually trying to. I was driving in a field while it was raining and it got to a spot that it sunk in so the mud was up to the bottom of the door

Ford Aerostar
4.0 v6 and 5r55e transmission same as what you can find in a Ranger or Explorer

I don't know if its technically a minivan because it has a frame under it and its got a metal gate behind the seat and behind the metal gate you got 7 1/2 feet

built this in the back of my l200, took it camping all over england, wales and the south west. took it to a bunch of festivals
the tailgate was great, like a dining table / bar during a party, a bench wherever you wish to park it (best up a mountain).
I also cleared out the bed gear when I was using the truck for work and the cabin (rough cost <£200) kept all my tools etc. dry
loved bouncing it around off road, i must say an L200 is fucking banging, will last forever, has low range gearbox, no computer, rear diff if u want it - live the dream


shame I had to sell up because the insurance is so high for a young man in the UK
now I drive a fucking corsa, am roadbound

Either sell it after that or do another loop.

Where I get lost is the prices are not relative to Aus. Even petrol and diesel prices are not relative. So it's difficult to plan accurately.

>>1184603
Used one in excellent shape will set you back 6000 USD up to how ever much you want to spend. Petrol here is $2-3 US dollars a gallon. So a 1500 mile trip at 15mpg would be only 300 dollars of petrol. USD is a little stronger than the AUD so 6000 USD = 7500 AUD.

You must be young. The chances someone took a 1988 F350 that was mint and did all this work to it is 0%. It was probably beat to shit with a smashed front end and a blown out motor.


The guy put a lot of thought into the front end swap, getting the ground clearance, and even the wheel and color scheme.

2009 ford edge sel. fwd. Works for what I do here in canada. Have a good set of snows. Only had to be pulled out of a ditch once, and it was all my fault. Pulled over on a shoulder, or what I thought was a shoulder. The snow had drifted up and I started sinking in sideways when I tried to drive forward. Should have turned off traction control, but I didn't know about it. Plus, I was kinda drunk at the time.

Fuck man I wanted one of these for years but they don't meet the ADR's here. I was stoked when I played Spintires Mudrunner and got to drive around in one. I've bought myself the closest thing I could find, a simple basic 4x4 which is easy to work on.

my cousin bought the exact same thing. It surprised me how well it drove. Smooth, but with a tighter suspension. I drove it from Florida to Kentucky for him, and it was wonderful on the highway. had 150,000 miles on it but it felt like new.

Ford did a great job with this one. I would consider getting one for the wife when her car goes to be honest.
