I reckon the 80 series turbo diesel sahara, standard diff locks front and back, coil spring, can get parts for them any where, heaps of extras available, good strong solid 4wd. If I had the room to park it Id have one tomorrow even a gxl or just the 80 series in general.Thats my thoughts anyway. Take care Steve m

I reckon the best Blandcruiser would be the GU Patrol 2003 model 4.2 Turbocharged Diesel Intercooled model. My thoughts only :) Michael

Thanks all

I've previously owned a 2.8D 4runner which was great but lacked plenty of power.

I'm heading up to the Cape from Sydney 24 April and currently looking at a neat 94 DX Cruiser. Asking 14K with 180 clicks, all the usual bits plus draws, fridge, duel tanks.

Any owners of the 80 series DX model would love to hear your thoughts on this vehicle.

Hi Damien,

I had a standard 80 series (DX has the tacho, rear headrests and roof sub tank guage from memory) and I reckon you couldn't go wrong with one of these. While they will never win a drag race, they are a good on-road performer and arguably one of the best ever offroad 4WD's.

Sounds a very good price, I got $16,500 for my 1990 standard model with 300,000kms 2 years sgo, but it did have heaps of mods (snorkel, locker, liftkit, drawers, barrier, 2 batts etc...).

Cheers

Captain

the 45/47 series. the grandpa of the group that puts all the youngsters in their place. bullet proof gearbox. no need to worry about 5th gear slipping. it hasnt got one. the 2h diesel goes on forever. no turbo troubles. it hasnt got one. rock hard springs that can take any weight. shockers absorbers that put the bounce in shock. tough as nails. when you go 4 wheel driving you feel every bump. none of this new fancy shmancy coil springs that makes you think your on the hume highway with suspension travel to burn.
the bonus is its a great body workout. the vehicle goes one way. you go the other. neck twists, spine stretches, leg stretches and kidney massages.
and to top it all off the 45/47 series has character. it has charisma. it has machismo. it has troopy pheromones. it is after all THE troopy. i am reluctant to have my missus drive it alone as she keeps getting too many admiring looks. when we go away the lads insist we take the troopy. it pulls the chicky babes.
people love it. it does get looks. it does have photos and video taken of it. i lie not. video taken of it while on a mountain top lookout overlooking the daintree. stupid french tourist. german, american and english tourists insist on photos. sneaky buggers even take pics when they think i am not looking.
and finally it is blessed by god as was moses. many a time i have driven in the middle lane of the freeway doing the speed limit when cars ahead have gotten out of the lane to allow me to pass and then have returned to the middle lane on my passage. even when i didnt intend them to they have parted the way. it is truelly blessed or the bloody big steel black bullbar on the front scares the be jesus out of them.
the only problem with it is that they just dont make them like that anymore.

I've got an 80 series Turbo Diesel now but for the "Best Ever" title I still think the 60 series has to come up trumps.

In 1982 we brought a metalic brown 60 series 2H Diesel G Wagon brand new for $17,000.
In 1992 we sold the 60 with 500,000 k's on it for....................wait for it................ yes you guessed it....................$17,000.

That takes some beating. The accountant had some trouble with an issue called depreciation - I don't know why.

Cheers,
Brett
