    Question BJ73 vs HJ61

    Dear Experts

    I need your expert opinion about BJ73, 3B, 5fwd vs HJ61, 2H, 5fwd, in terms of:

    1. Fuel consumption
    2. Parts availability
    3. Reliability
    4. Convenience in offroading and long trips to NA
    5. Resale value

    My main use will be trip to northern areas and may be camping.

    Your help in the above mentioned vehicles are more than welcome and any other information you would like to add. Please.

    Regards

    Default Both Are Good Vehicles....

    60 Series is a very good vehicle, especially when you consider on-road travel. It has a longer body, and more luggage space. Contrary to common perceptions, it is also a very good off-roader. Its articulation, subject to its leaf springs being in good shape and original Toyota manufactured, its terrain-hugging is absolutely wonderful. Limitation is only in driver's view of the track when climbing uphill on a winding road, because of the length of the bonnet.
    BJ 73 is better than its shorter counter-part, BJ 70, but is still a bit harsher as compared to its longer cousin. Both are excellent on part availability, and re-sale, though original purchase has to be reasonable. Both should come in the region of 600,000 to 750,000 type of price tag, if in good shape.
    One fellow pakwheeler is probably selling his HJ61 with a much better engine, 12HT. I am not sure. Contact Veitnam for details, if you are interested.
