    Question Urgent advise needed for buying BJ 60 - First SUV

    Assalam-o-Alaikum

    I want to buy BJ 60 as my first SUV therefore I need suggestions from Senior Pakwheelers whether it is advisable to buy 30 years old jeep for the beginer. My budget is 6 Lacs. I will be using it as a third vehicle. will be using it for long trips to northern areas or may be to home town Multan after two to three months. Main considerations are reliabilty, after sales service, economy and resale value.

    Any other vehicle if you suggest in this budget.

    these vehicles are better than a 2010 model mehran. Get a good condition vehicle and enjoy it. And try not to go for a body changed one as custom people are now a days catching such vehicles.

    @Jahanzeb - Go ahead bro, you wont regret this if you are not scared from diesel price. But as it would be your third vehicle so it must not be a problem for you.

    You will love it, its an unbeatable monster, which goes everywhere. However check for complete body and exterior tiny parts as these are rare to find even stock side mirrors are not easily available.

    If you find a BJ 60 without any cut weld modifications, it is a good choice.

    Recently I missed one by Rs. 25000.00 at Karachi Police auction the other guy took it away for 300,000 (Plus 50,000 undertable for auction paper & clean chit for re-registration) - body complete, dashboard, ONE driver side seat, with engine & chassis on wheels but no glasses & no seats. she is under rework at a Soldier bazar karachi workshop.

    However, Diesel will be Rs. 100+ per liter while petrol will be Rs.90+ per liter by Dec 2011 and CNG will be rationed for Transport sector after October 2011 to March 2012.

    300k for this condition and without registration is a way higher price - its your good luck that you have missed it

    Restoration of this giant need very deep pocket - its always good to get a running condition vehicle with basic things in working condition. However, changing engine / tranny is not a big issue.

    I think it must have been a BJ70 as police never had these BJ60s - If it was BJ70 then it might be a good price even for beaten down one.

    I forgot to mention she is Original PETROL engine was functional she went out on her own power.

    STOCK BJ 60 without any MAJOR rework on under carriage, engine bay & original papers will not be under Half million.

    I offered that price with a Total in mind for her from Police Junkyard to My driving habits total 550,000.00 (vehicle plus cost for Engine rebuilt, body work, interior, air conditioning, wheels, 6 head-up arc lamps, winch & a Chiller box )

    guys i have a pin-bit of idea what BJ 60 & BJ 70 means !

    550k for a registered and on road BJ60 is just OK with everything working. But BJ cant be with petrol engine those which are with stock gasoline engines called FJs.

    BJ60s are 5 door huge wagons while BJ70 are 3 door land cruisers usually with Police DSP in blue color. You can google image for quick review.
