In the market for a tow/travel 4wd. What have we got?

Post by jersy » Mon Sep 14, 2020 8:47 pm

Looking for a ute/wagon to tow my 5m tinnie , as well as trips i.e Broome, Gove. Preferably single/space ute but wagons also welcome. Dual battery, long ranger tank, pretty much set up would be great, etc. Dealers up her are dreamin at the moment and blaming covid. Budget at the mo is around 30-35k,( that the minister has approved ;-) ) Cheers John

I'll be in the market for another Ute in the near future as well Jersy. Oh yeah, Dealers up here are def dreaming. And most utes have been thrashed, and drowned in Saltwater dropping in boats. ha ha!!! I've been looking down south, specifically Queensland, sooo much cheaper. V8 2012 Cruiser utes have been going at auction there with Grays online auctions, for $31k, with 150-200k on the odo. Even the private sales wouldnt have been in as much saltwater as up here. Good luck mate, I'd be looking at getting one down south, and getting CEVA to possibly truck it up. :)

Mate went to a car yard up here.. looked at a Maroon Cruiser, v8, looked amazing, $70k..
Under looked ok, as usual, they undercoat the bottom anyways..He reached up underneath, pushed up the Bung, and felt around...Rust-city..... Would have been like a Flintstone vehicle, with no floor, in no time he reckoned.. ha ha!!
