    My old G/friend had a Shogun pinin, it was ok if anything a bit tinny I thought the interior was pretty good, fairly hardwearing too. I drove the Sport she was loaned when someone banged into her pinin, only real difference to hers was it was huge!

    Went with a mate to a car dealer when he was lookin a new motor and there was a Sport sitting. It was black with low milage and leather interior. Looked really well.

    the sport is just a mistu pickup with a different rear end, probably zero stars in crash safety. avoid the pajero as "pajero" is near enough spanish for wa$%ker

    I'd go for a landy instead. The shogun sport isn't all that good off-road, and you can't beat a landy for off-roadability.

    Enjoy the rear leaf springs! Hope you don't have many speed bumps were you live. I have a pick-up as I can reclaim the vat and use it for moving stuff on the farm but they are pants off-road and bouncy on the road. different rear spring would be a huge improvement but they need to carry 1000+kg to class as commercial hence the horse cart suspension.

    If your after a 4x4 with proper off roading capabilities the toyota landcruiser is the one to go for. Bulletproof build and will go on forever and ever.

    Navara Posh renault lets be honest Some are even trying to fool people into thinking the yanks buy them. Uh no Ford f150s the yanks love them or dodge ram srt is my bet

    Both bullet proof huge expensive to run and built like a cart. But 400+ bhp stock from the dodge thatll do nicely sir.

    Have to agree for 4x4 then its a landy or landcruiser.
