That's not a bad price when you consider that a friend just bought a new 79 series single cab landcruiser. Then replaced the suspension, seats ect, put a service body on it, decked it out and install a 2500w sine inverter, to a staggering cost of in excess of the $150k. And it's only a landcruiser. The OKA at lest will have good clearance and towing capacity with about the same miles per gallon
location - Warragul -Victoria
life is too short, so out and about enjoy

the old joke about OKA’s was that they were a great vehicle once the mods were completed. That included replace the engine, gear box and drive train and then replace the body and suspension

I think that will be a very old joke looking at the specs available now!.


The dual cab trayback looks the goods, i reckon if i get a $100,000 trade in for the defender, the rest is easy, :))))))).


Cheers Axle.

After owning 3 OKA's I would rather spend $150 on a chopped 200 series.

Hopefully, this will give people interested in OKA a bit more insight into the new OKA

Not often you get a very knowledgeable interviewer and a no-bs, straight-answering seller/maker Tony. Robert Pepper did the best road test on any vehicle I've read - on the new Everest. Great to see this Aussie business doing well.

Thanks, I have been lucky enough to have worked with Robert, we did a piece on "Big Out" for Unsealed.

He also has written the manual we use for 4WDing.

He has a true down to earth, honest approach to the motor industry with an accute technical background.

And he is not a bad guy for a pom. ????

Ha ha. Plenty of good Poms despite the stereotyping Tony.

Yep his 'test it properly and report what you found' came across clearly in the Everest test. I was impressed enough to message and thank him.

Bazooka,

That's where being a pom myself works ;) Although I have been here since 82.

Great video article, a real contender against the Iveco Daily 4x4.

spotted one being driven along kewdale road (west aust industrial section in metro area) in a 6x6 single cab configuration few months back.

basically they reuse the existing chassis and cabins but modernize them from what I can gather. gave me figure of 80,000 for basic chassis and singel cab

downside is requires LR licence but a similarly sized Hino 3t 4x4 can be derated to 4495 GVM within C class licence weight range
