Who would buy a Landrover for $70-80k to go offroading ? Seriously, i know people who brag about how great they are offroading they crush Jeep and so on..
Well i hate to break it to you people who think this, but if i buy a wrangler for $22k and put $10k in it go offroading, your landrover doesnt stand a chance.. and i still spend $30-40k less then buying a Landrover lol.
Landrover is overpriced big time
Jeep has been setting the standard for offroad vehicles since the 1940's. Everything else is just a wanna-be. But realistically, the best offroaders are the ones built at home. The cheapest vehicle on this list started at 19K dollars. A gearhead can build an old beater and leave the rest of these wine-and-cheese buggies in the dust for HALF of that amount. If you really want to offroad, dont be a poser: Buy a rig (particularly a Jeep or an older Toyota) and build it yourself. XJ Cherokees, older wranglers and CJs, Broncos, Tacomas and Samurais are good places to start. The outcome is much more satisfying, off-road effective, and cheaper! If you cant at least install your own lift kit, then you should probably stick to going to the mall or the golf course in the first place. Real rigs are built, not bought.
Where's the Toyota (former) Land Cruiser. .now the FJ?
THAT is right up there with Land Rover. .
How could they miss that one?
