If wasn't in the market for a real tidy example myself, I'd say a GQ wagon would be a good choice.....but 'cause I don't want the competition, look for something else :-)

I'd be straight out to buy another GQ Wagon. Just went through the 'What 4WD' process myself before buying a 4.2 Diesel GQ. I wouldn't change now for anything and if it ever dies i'll get another one. I spent 6 months thinking about it before I had the money together. Thought about a triton, hilux, rodeo, jackaroo, pajero, cruiser, discovery and patrol. My budget was $10000 - $13000.

Of course it depends what you want to do. The GQ Wagon is great for touring and pretty serious off road. If your after a hardcore weapon you might want a shortly. If you want to take 3 kids around Oz for the year a troopy may give more space. For mine, the GQ is a perfect allrounder, reliable, and cheaper than a comparable Tojo.

Cheers.

gday crazy.
my choice would be a diesal gq wagon without a doubt.
i dont think you would come close to a diesal cruiser.
bit bigger than a pajero but it wouldnt be to hard to fill.

For $15 K I would look around for an absolutely immaculate 61 series landcruiser and enjoy it.
Its got power,economy and comfort and parts availability and aftermarket options that dont come any better.
Number 2 choice would be the Patrol for similar reasons to the 61 landcruiser.

Another choice that wouldnt suit everyone ,but worth thinking about ,is $15k would buy a very nice BJ74 MWB turbo diesel.For someone who wants plenty of offroad action a 74 would be hard to beat.

If you hunt around, you might be able to find a standard 80 series cruiser, which is a very capable off-road vehical, go for a diesel though, they are a bit slower taking off, but they give good economy and they will criuse on 110 - 120ks
