    i personally like pajero over rocky as far as the overall comparision is concerned.. but if u particularly compare offroad capabilities thn i must say pajero is noway near rocky.. Rocky is real hard core offroader

    Hi there, in this price range there is no comparison to Rocky. Its super weight power ratio rocks. @offroad tell your friend to buy the rocky and enjoy the offroad life. Take care.
    To all the extreme drivers, please come offroad like ME to keep others safe on the roads.

    I can't say anything about Mini or Jr. Pajero, I prefer and own the MK1 3 door Pajero.

    1. The reason being the availability of new and old spare parts. This is a huge advantage as you can buy spares from a lot of places and in the quality and price that you can afford. So, I don't have to worry if I need switch for the dashboard or any engine part. That's a huge advantage for me.

    2. Since Pajero has been in the Pakistan's market for some time similarly there is abundance of mechanics who understand the machine, so you don't have to worry about getting the work done or going to one specific mechanic.

    3. Since an increase in the number of Pajeros over Rocky, I believe the resale is also better compared to Rocky.

    4. Offroad, yes I believe Rocky is better. If you are into serious offroading most of the time, choose Rocky, otherwise Pajero is a good choice.

    Fahad, why not approach Shani, I think he can hook you up with a Defender in this price range or bit more...

    In this price range Rocky is definitely the best off-roader. Pajero is good too but Rocky can be fitted with Toyota Parts.

    for offroading purpose if u compare Rocky with Pajero or Mini Pajero then definitely Rocky is the best choice
    plz also keep in mind that 2nd hand/ kabuli spare parts of Rocky r easily available n cheap as there is alot of wear n tear in offroading
