Lol Times must be tough in the used car industry..... As for aftermarket seats, I have never heard of having to fit 2 seats the same... Not here in QLD anyhow...

Drive them all and see what you prefer. If I was after a 4wd for sub $20k it would be a Pajero, block the egr and fit a catch can and it will go for ever.
Just avoid 2008 autos as they are the only ones with a dpf.

A whole new world I'm learning at the moment. Definitely want a manual so that gets rid of a lot a cars. Have my heart set on a Prado now after driving that one yesterday but might consider a Pajero only if it is perfect.

Hey Feral, talking to a mate yesterday and he had a set of front buckets out of a HSV VX in his Prado.
Only cost him $2.2k.
That included the seats, mounting brackets and engineer certificate.

Try to Keep away from NM and NP Diesel Pajero's... They use a really silly Diesel pump set up... And if you do your Diesel Pump, you are looking at over $6000 to repair.. yikes skull

Awesome seats. Some real body huggers. That will be a project for the future.

Thanks LW. Had to read that twice. 5k for a fuel pump is nasteee argh

After searching high and low, from Cairns down to northern NSW I found what I was looking for close by by shear accident. Had to go through a dealer and said dealer had to take my Craptiva for the payout figure. Am now the very proud owner of a 2008 Prado party party party

It was what I wanted all along. Happy as a piglet in mud.

Would like to thank every one for their input thumbsup thumbsup

No need for after market seats and this is the first vehicle I have ever owned where the seat belt doesn't cut into my neck. Loven it smile

Well done Feral, great to hear you got what you hoped to get. Being someone who has had 3 Toyota 4x4 in the past 25 years I'm confident you will be happy for years to come. Well done.

Well done Feral.
This was a great thread especially for those like me whom have only ever driven sedans and have wondered about the different 4x4s out there.
Great info fellas

I know zip about 4WD's hence the original question. Glad it didn't turn into a fight. Sorta like a Ford v Holden thing.

Working in Traffic Control and being on the road all the time, as mentioned before, I see the Patrols outnumber the Prados but not by much. Only counting the diesel 3L. Pajero numbers don't come even halfway close to either. This is what I see every day. Now throw into the mix a manual only and watch the numbers dwindle.

I don't do a great deal of posting cause i really don't have anything to offer awful yet
