    Default Need help in buying an Off Roader

    Salam brothers. I am looking to buy a a Toyota FJ40 jeep.

    My second choice is to go for a MUTT in good condition. If some Lahore members can help me I would like to restore one myself.

    I have a budget of around 300k. The jeep would be used a daily ride and i am looking for petrol engine.
    Lahore members kindly reply.

    Rs 300K will get you a basic FJ40 / CJ (no paint, bodywork, upholstery, refinements). On the other hand, it will get you a fairly good MUTT (with a paint job, bodywork, upholstery, a roof etc). So economics is one thing.

    When it comes to comparisons, though...there really isn't a comparison possible. The MUTT looks good, drives fairly well on road, and is reasonably good off-road. The FJ looks great, drives wonderfully on road, and is an absolute demon off-road. Personally, I'm more inclined towards the FJ over a CJ...but grudgingly, I suppose they're pretty much par with one another.

    All said and done, I suppose it's what tickles your fancy more...the FJ or the CJ or the MUTT.

    As a beginner / budget off-roader...I'd also venture to say that an early Suzuki Potohar / SJ410 is also, pretty much the same price range...

    SJ410 will be better choice than rest of the listed but we need to understand that Bluehorn want to have a LOOKER for daily drive and MUTT is a looker with all those attachments and pretty much in price range... leaving aside off road capabilities MUTT falls in a budget of 300K... FJ40 good condition restored may start from 600k and may go up a million :p

    Do not buy mutt ... you will spend most of your time playing with its wheel allingmets ...and try to increase your budget and go for FJ40.

    We have some bad experiences with mutt and also IJC guys r also not in it's favour, when it comes to off roading. But if he has no such plans then my first advice is that go for a decent car instead of a 4x4. These jeeps like FJ40 , CJ5, mutt etc r not for daily running in cities but for off roading or tough mountain areas.

    hahaha.

    imran bhai,
    i dont want to get in rights or wrong with Mutts, but i would like to mention that you never had a perfect mutt.
    Mutts are lovely and im lovin it.

    for thread poster, if you are looking for a daily runner then pls go for a potohar, forget about FJs, CJs & Mutts

    Rgds,

    If you can visit Karachi then I can get you an auctioned FJ40 for around 185k.
