Looking for answers on which vehicle would be the most suitable for this environment. Looking at either a 4.2 100 S Landcruiser or the 3.0 TD Patrol. My concern is the heat and servicabilty of the high tech patrol in this environment. Can anybody shed some light or help steer me in the right direction. Would be most receptive to good advice.

Both are good vehicles. My suggestion would be to see which model has the best servicing/maintenance support in the area.

G'day fish, If you are going to be doing some off road work, it all comes down to Nissan or Toyota, anything else at your peril! If no off road work planned, then a more economical 2wd might be better, all the main roads up there are bitumen. Used to be a good toyota dealer in Kununurra, suppose they are still there. 3.0 Td patrol owners round here are adding a second fuel filter, to alleviate potential pump problems, otherwise no dramas. Am biased toward toyotas. Catch you later...

Definitely a Diesel required Fish.
Me personally, I wouldn't be spending too much money for a car that was going to stay in "Hells Crack".
Saw heaps of Patrols, 60's & 80's (as with all of the Kimberley I suppose) on all occasions that I had to pass through.

hiya fish, well all that i,m gonna say is;
get a hilux..
lived up there for awhile, kunnunara actually, and did alot of offroad syuff around the cattle stations for work and the 4x4 that handled it the best was a hilux. oh and make sure you run the stock skinny split rims, stay away from the fatter stuff unless you looove changing tyres.

and i own a gu patrol.
