Which pickup for £3k?
Have got an urge to get a pickup and got £3k to spend. Which one do I go for.
I need it for work, either loaded up or towing the trailer. Need it to get me where I’m going which is often into forestry or through fields and after a few punctures, scuffed bunpers and getting the inside of the car caked in mud, oil and grease since I started my new job, I need something more rugged. Do cover a decent mileage on tarmac too so would be nice if it didn’t guzzle fuel.
Do I look for an over priced, hyped up Hilux. Try to find a Defender that I can rely on(for that money?gd luck). Get an L200 and spend a fortune on parts. What about a Ford Ranger, not really heard much about them to be honest but perhaps a bit too rudimental. Don’t even want to consider anything Isuzu or the likes. Or the Navara???aaaaaahhhhhhhhh too many options and not enough knowledge. Can you guys guide me as to what you reckon is the best option please.Posted 4 years agomechmonkeyMember
Ranger seems to be where things keep coming back too, I just cant seem to get excited about them though. Think I need o wait for one to come up local and take it for a drive. Although if I can find a reasonable condition, sub 80k miles L200 I think I might take a punt on it as I just like it a bit better.
Going to set up a watch on ebay and gumtree see what comes up.
There is a 2000 L200 on the bay at the moment with 67k on the clock and new BFG tyres which might just fall into my price bracket. Shame about the hideous graphics but if its a good motor clicky
See my other thread about Double Cabs.
Had a wee read of that, useful thanks.Posted 4 years agoorangeboyMember
If you like landrovers have one but if you want it to work daily its prob best to avoid 3k ones
I like my 110 but it only does about 4000 miles a year and still eats
More parts/money than anything I’ve ever had
I do know a few people who use them for workPosted 4 years ago
But mostly ones with warranty still
