    Please share pictures.

    For CJ7, model year pls share engine type, gearbox, differential type, type of suspension.

    More detailed pictures of a inside out of vehicles would enable us to give better opinion.

    Here are my some requirements.
    Basically i am a true hardcore off road lover and want to use it on rocks, water streams and a little bit sand but sadly my budget is very low right now. I want a ride for a long term use and will build it gradually when my pocket gets some money and it also will be my daily ride

    Regards

    I would strongly recommend a CJ7 well built up with a decent engine/gearbox with acceptable body work (off course with a functional 4x4). I don't have much experience with Potohar but for light to mid off roading, i've heard zuks are a good option.

    Nomanff maybe able to comment on zuks

    Yes you can do everything with that, Buy your self an Sj410 swap in original 1.3 engine with 5 speed manual gear, you can lift it and do everything on it.

    even a stock sj410 will give hard time to cj7 and will be equally capable as m38.

    Its best ride in my opinion considering your options.

    since you are in quetta you can make a great sj410 in 550,000 budget.
    pbuy a frame with documents around 1.5 lacks and put smaurai body on it pay custom(4lacks) every thing will fit bolt on.

    @qwertyuiop
    Agree sj410 can give really tough time to other very capable rides and happy to heard that modifications are possible. I think stock raised roof sjs looks more aggressive than samurai body i think its sj413. But looks all depends on personal choice. Thanks a lot bro for sparing your precious time.
