    Do correct me if I am wrong......the white IJC pickup is an old military DODGE???? and the infamous 'kaikra', to me atleast, looks like that military 2 1/2 ton( lovingly called dhaee ton shahzore) 6 wheeled cargo/troop truck??? Please pardon, if my bleak knowledge on the US(crappy) hardware has failed, again!!!!

    Ahhhhhhhmm......well, its actually a Jeep M715 or a military Jeep Gladiator. Now what American bull crap is that, your shiny Japanese metal would ask . Wikipedia kahat hai:

    "The Jeep Gladiator was a full-size pickup truck based on the SJ Jeep Wagoneer SUV. First introduced in 1962............. Gladiators were available in RWD and 4WD, and came either with a solid front axle, or independent front suspension with optional dual rear wheels...... The Jeep Wagoneer (obviously) was an early sport utility vehicle (SUV), produced under varying marques from 1963 to 1991. It was noteworthy for being in production for more than 28 years with only minor mechanical changes. The Jeep Wagoneer "created a whole new category of so-called sports-utility vehicles" and its "massive estate car design was the most car-like 4x4" that "defined the boxy, macho shape" copied by others. Compared with offerings from International Harvester and Land Rover — which were producing utilitarian work-oriented vehicles that were quite spartan and truck-like on the inside — the Wagoneer was the first true luxury 4x4.The Wagoneer is based on the Jeep SJ platform and debuted seven years (24 years in the United States) before the Land Rover's Range Rover. "

    Waisey to kaafee saarey panjaabi aur indian filmi dialogue yahan par phit hotey hain, par aap bhai log jaantey hain ke hamaarey muluk mein aaj kal kissi Amereeki cheez ko support karna faidey mand nahin. Hence

    Aur to aur chorein, sunaa hai kee "India's Tata/Vectra is also entering an M715 type vehicle as a candidate for the Indian Army's LSV requirement".

    Case can be made for the 70 Series Land Cruiser. IT literally killed the Land Rover in all the markets where it maters the most Africa, Australia, Asia and South America.
    Why? reliability, Reliability and RELIABILITY
    The Jeep never really became a global force. Even if it did, its still would have ended as the Land Rover. Not reliable enough.
    My all time fav 4x4 the MB G wagen was either too expensive or not offered in most markets, but very popular among military.

    ^^ I concur..

    Nothing could be said for certain about the LC is question (the 200 that is, because I consider it a bit too bulky for being an optimal offroading machine), but one of its brothers can unquestionably be considered one of the best - if not the best - offroaders of all times... yes, the series 70 is what I'm talking about.. And it is still kicking some major a$$, because it still is in production after so many years of service and is highly in demand despite of its retro styling (which to be honest, I personally prefer over the modern ones)...
    What have you been grateful for today..?

    I agree 100%. Modern SUV's come way too equipped (I'd say over-equipped) and are really heavy to be true off-roaders.

    No, the Land Cruiser isn't the best 4x4.

    Best 4x4 of all time, central locking, locking diffs. 1 HP. 80-100KM Top Speed. Off-Road tires. No Maintenance, and no fuel costs. Get off it and it will feed it self, presenting "The Horse".

    This is where it all began.

    2. Nissan Petrol...best vehicle on sand
    3. land rover... best offroad machine
    4. land cruiser...off the road and on the road, the best machine (y)

    A very interesting question posed, at the start of the thread. And time for me to stir the pot again, after a year!

    I've owned a 1988 4.2L Land Cruiser (60 series), a 1986 Pajero (LWB), a 1952 Willys, a 2000 4.7L Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, a 2000 4.6L Range Rover HSE, and a 2003 4.5L Land Cruiser (70 series). I think that represents a fairly broad choice of vehs for comparison.

    Without a doubt, the 70 series Land Cruiser is the best off road vehicle I have ever owned. Followed by the Range Rover, the Willys, the Cherokee, the 60 series Land Cruiser, and the Pajero...in that order of descent. These, from the vehicles I've owned. However, it'd still rank better than the Defenders, the Discoverys, the Patrols, the Titans, the Hiluxes and the Yukons I've had the pleasure to drive.

    I'd like to state here that simply saying "Land Cruiser" is a bit of a misleading statement. Not all Land Cruisers actually ARE the best off-road vehs out there (especially in Pakistan, where the choice is limited). The 200 series Land Cruisers, the Lexus series et al, are simply poseurs; oversized cars that have 4WD and fat tyres. Personally, I don't count them as off-roaders at all. I'd consider them toys for the man (or woman) with lots of moolah; whose off-roading experience will be limited to engaging 4x4 in the driveway leading to his (or her) billion rupee farmhouse.

    So, back to the original question. Is the Land Cruiser the best off-road vehicle out there? Yes. The 70 series TLC probably is (specifically, the FZJ-79 pickup).

    Why? Relative cost. A 212 HP I6 engine that just doesn't quit. Huge amount of torque on hand. Insane power to weight ratio (for example, my Range Rover churns out 222 HP, but weighs twice as much as my 212 HP FZJ-79). Incredible gearing. Terrific ride clearance. Maintainability. Ruggedness (in most types of terrain). Reliability.

    Just my two cents worth.

    Cheers.

    Land Cruiser, Its in the Name Cruiser of the Lands. Personally, I sold it in favor of a Range Rover I have and trust me reliability is nothing. Last week it broke down and had 11 mechanics look at that SUV but none could solve the mystery. Range Rovers are to complex. You know what they say, Don't judge a book by its cover. Range Rover got the looks Interior and Exterior, But under the bonnet, don't ask.
