Hi Ted.Pics of your troopy I have seen in the past look very impressive and would have cost no where as much as his sponsered one.Go the troopy,I would not have anything else.

I'am with you Troopy rules, the single man shack on wheels.

Not to far for my new one and it will be with me till I die, put me in the back close the barn doors and push it into a mine shaft and there I will stay.

Hi David.yep as long as the shaft is laced with gold.I had thought about updating my troopy but not sure yet about the v8`s as to there reliability.At the moment I can not fault my 4.2 diesel even though the K`s are increasing.

Hi Members,

Here is an update from Andrew St. Pierre White 4WD journalist who has spent most of his life in South Africa
but now resides in Perth W.A. on his opinion of different types of 4WD's.
Interesting comments being mainly on South African conditions but on some of his
comments he should do [in my opinion] more research on the vehicles sold here in Australia
& the outback driving conditions here as far as performance, reliability & in the bush repairs.

Have a look here:

Choosing The Right 4WD Truck-1

Choosing The Right 4WD Truck-2

Choosing The Right 4WD Truck-3

Now this one I really find interesting because of the simplicity of the accessories he used in setting up his latest vehicle
for the Canning Stock Route trip in July 2017.
Some of them I wish were available when I did the CSR back in 1995, particularly the quick shower setup.
All these items are now readily available here in Western Australia where he bought & setup his current 4WD.
With his discussion on fridges he needs to do more research on Australian made products for the efficiency & reliability
under Australian conditions as 2 brands I have used Trailblazer & EvaKool would rate with the top overseas manufactured
products to be just as good (or if not better) in power consumption & reliability.

Vehicle Setup For the Canning Stock Route
Cheers,

Ted

To my way of thinking the new 79 series is an unbeatable vehicle until you lift the bonnet.
What a nightmare for servicing let alone when things go wrong (and they do)
In South Africa the 79 series is still available with the 1hz engine, and should be here too.
Way out in the scrub away from the big smoke simplicity is King.

The ideal 4WD would be a comfortable Nissan Patrol complete with drive train plus a Tojo engine.



Good luck & safe travels
