Hi all

Iím about done with my Land Rover and am currently looking to buy a Land Cruiser. After hearing all the stress free happy drivers with minimal repairs.

But now Iím lost in all the options for different models, engine sizes and fuel types

I need a car that can pull 3.5 tonne loaded trailer nationwide, with minimal stress on repairs and faults (like my current d3 2.7)

Iíve found a 3.0D4D landcruiser (see image) and wondered if any pros could guide me and confirm if this is the car for me or if itís not quite powerful enough?

Itís stated as 3.5 tonne limit but itís 3.0L and doesnít specify if itís a Prado? 12 months not no advisories

Or do I go for a 4.7 petrol / Lpg Amazon? Which has an abs fault

Ideally Iíd like to buy one ASAP and move on to a new chapter and sell my d3 when it eventually comes back from repair. Usually in 2-3 times a year and has always had problems unfixed.

Thanks

I canít figure how to upload pic but the regs are

R352JTW D4d 3.0 diesel

DA02HRO 4.7 petrol Lpg Amazon

Im wondering is there a difference between the petrol and diesel Amazon as petrol Lpg may not have the same engine design or build parts quality that Iím needing

Thanks

If you want to tow 3.5tns you will need one of the bigger models, which are 80 100 or 200 series.
