Yes Matt this is the model that had the issues. I had a GUIII (Nov 01 Build) in which they were supposed to have addressed them…they hadn’t! There are well known issues with the motor blowing, usually around piston No. 4, and with the 5th gear splines not being long enough and shredding. I had both happen to me. If I were you I’d have a good look on the Patrol 4x4 forum or buy a vehicle where the motor has already been replaced (I sold mine a couple of months ago…sorry).
