Yes mate. Long story. Got married, & the man pitt is now a sensible house hahaha.
Trying to decide on what vehicle to get between us got the list down to Toyota Hilux or Land Rover Discovery II.
Just want to get back out there, fishing camping you name it.

Well I wanted a terracan. A Manual not an auto this time but the misses not keen on them. And when I phoned OEC international they said they couldn't get hold of a roof rack to support a roof tent that we want.

Also they said Anton left OEC International. Not to keen on dealing with them now. He was very helpful on my last 2x vehicles the kitted out.

Yep Anton left, Liz too. Not the same without them.  No 

So, a Toyota Hilux or - and I really didn't think I would ever hear you say it - a Land Rover Discovery II.  affraid  Decisions decisions.

Yeah disco td5. On the basis there easy to fix. Parts are global and kit is extensive. But I like the hilux

Two that instantly spring to mind are West Coast off Road Centre, but they are up in Southport, Merseyside - www.westcoastoffroad.co.uk

Far nearer to you is Overland Cruisers in near Ledbury, Herefordshire - www.overland-cruisers.co.uk I assume Julian deals in HiLuxes too, bound too!

Both have a good reputation in the Toyota world.

Disco II: Apart from the usual Td5 engine niggles, watch for the rear chassis rails... rust like a rusty thing!
