we are absolutely delighted with ours
pulls the caravan great and feels like a jet engine under the bonnet compared to the jackaroo
great off-road
42000k and not one problem

Have had Tojos (75, 80 and 78 series) and Patrols (1998 GU 2.8 and 2001 GU 3.0) and now a very happy 3.2 Paj owner. I do miss the room and simplicity of the troopies, the effortless offroad ease of the 80 (2" lift) and I don't miss much about the Patrols.
The Paj pulls like a steam train, can cruise at 150 ('course I haven't done it, I just....know, thats all...;-) and it's the most economical vehicle I have ever owned. Mine's a manual and if it's driven normally around town will always get 10.5 to 11 k's per litre. Recent trip Pt Hedland to Broome, cruising at 120 - 130, air con on, slight cross wind - approx 8.5 per litre (no roofrack)
I have had it through the Mundaring circuit (for those unfamiliar, a reasonably difficult circuit in the hills east of Perth WA) and it got through quite OK, but with a little bit more fuss than the troopy or 80 series.
Sounds like a tractor at low speeds but once it's cruising at 80 or more, it's very quiet and smooth. All up a brilliant vehicle so far

Was out on a trip the other week and one of the Paj's tailshafts (rear) broke in half. Appears to be made from carbon fibre or similar. Seems an odd material to use for a tailshaft as carbonfibre breaks when flawed. Don't know if this was a one off.
