Hi Duncan,
Ummmm ................ the 100 didn't originally come out with a turbo ...... so the first question would be ................ what type and when fitted .................??
Early 100's had the beam front axle and would be my pick. Later models had the torsion bar IFS and tended to break parts when suspension modifications were taken two steps too far. There are kits to help with this issue.

Then again, if you like the vehicle and it suits your use .............. get it and enjoy!!

Wayne & Sally.

Yep and they were offered at the same time as the 105 series. from 99 onwards with the TD and V8 Petrol whilst the 105's had the 1HZ non turbo and 6cyl 1FZ-FE petrol and rigid front axle.

Get into it They are a great vehicle They retain their price as well

They can tow up to 3500kg and do it with ease.

Just dont tow in O/D with an auto.

Mine does 17l pr 100km with nearly 3 tonne on the back.

Have just done a 50,000k trip and never even had a puncture.

Wife said halfway Im B**** y glad we arent doing this in the Patrol we previously had.
