A few days back I was almost 100% done to upgrade my 1996 prado to 1998-2001 LC 100 but the only concern is that my use of prado is a bit rough especially on expeditions ( hunting and northern areas trips)and number of tours r around 5 in an year. We pass through narrow tracks, often rub the jeep with bushes, climb on roof with hard shoes, through garbage inside jeep as for Eco tourism I don't allow anyone to through anything out of the vehicle, sometimes drinks fell on seats and in cabin and with this prado I don't bother these things and there is not even a single scratch on prado despite all these carelessness.But with a high end luxury land cruiser with around 4 million price tag, we hav to bound ourselves which i don't want.
My prado has no issues but just for a change after an year, I want to shift to LC.
Another idea which came to my mind today is to go for LC80, usually most 80 series here were imported in their year of manufacture but I need one that is 2006-7 import as it will b less abused.
Need advice from u guys , is that a better choice from Prado . It will b my daily runner + family car+ expeditions in north.i know it would b heavy on fuel but doesnt matter a lot. No plans for hardcore off roading as for that I hav wrangler.
but still m more inclined towardes LC100, its more reliable, durable, luxury, comfortable and slylish looks
Pl also advice if u hav some in sight but should b fresh import and auto.
