I picked up my 1992 Jackaroo(Current shape) for 10,000. It doesnt mind the sand. 3.2 litre v6 uses 12.8,13.8L/100k open road and a hell of a lot more in the sand 18L/100k plus. But with the extra power it makes driving the sand a breeze. Comfortable and with decent seats in the back. Well worth the money.

I doubt you would get a 2.7p (1997+) for $10 000.

Have a 2.4 petrol hilux and have found it an excellent car for what we do . worst economy is about 12.5 l per 100 , we fitted extactors and a 2'' system and found this improved our low down torque a bit , works very well in the bush , NW Qld , and tows our boat fine , in heavy sand you will find yourself in low range probably more than you will like , I only have the dry river beds out here as an example though , not a firmer packed beach . Hope this helps some any way .
