A good read!
good to see that in the end the real 4WD's win hands down!
Of course you could add Patrols on the end of their list with the Pajero and Land Cruiser if they had of added one on the trip.

'yep...Pajero country...'

Pretty obvious why the Patrol was not tested Laura. CAUSE IT WAS A SUNDAY DRIVE. They said it themselves, the route chosen was to test the vehicles, these roads wouldn't test a Patrol.
You asked for it, I'll bite (hahaha)

The EK most probably had better ground clearance, 200mm from memory, and didn't have all of the electrics to go wrong!
