I am in need of some information with regards to restoring an old jeep. My father bought this old jeep from what he says was used by rangers(which i doubt) a few years ago, we were going to restore it but due to our financial situations we couldn't and the jeep has been standing at the parking lot of the mechanic. Now we have a bit of money and were thinking of restoring the jeep but neither me nor my father have any experience with jeeps so i thought i could get some advice from you guys.
Firstly the reason my father bought the jeep was to travel to our farm house which is located in padrar(45 minutes from kallar kahar motorway interchange), any normal car would suffice but the roads leading to our property are badly damaged and you could consider them to be seriously off road, this has been damaging the underside of our other cars and thus my father bought a jeep.
(sorry for the long backstory)
Now i was wondering what kind of specifications should we have as the jeep would mostly spend its time on the Islamabad to Kallar Kahar Motorway and then 45 minutes on the normal Kallar kahar road and then some 15 minutes of off road.
The mechanic suggested an engine by the name of 2LT toyota diesel engine which i have no knowledge of, i would be most grateful if you guys could help me out with what kind of specs should i have like suspension, engine type, tyre size, a/c, hardtop or softtop etc.
Eagerly awaiting for your response
