Keep your eye where it counts grasshopper

If reliability takes precedence over looks then don't let your eye stray or be wooed...If this is truly meant to be a work truck then maybe something simple like the little Toyota 4x2 that Subzali has may fit the bill the best...I use to drive one for work and while you wouldn't be picking up ladies in it, it got great gas mileage and was super reliable. The only downside was when it snowed but some weight in the back can aid there.

I know I know - but sometimes you get lucky and find both . I told my boss I don't want to drive something completely boring hehe.

I do need 4x4 though as I'll need to get to sites no matter what the weather throws at me every day.

depends on how much of the body has already rusted away or fallen off.

Going on Martins weight assessment I would say that is lighter than a 60 and in a few years it will be lighter than a 40!
