  7. Re: What are your non negotiables when buying a 4x4?

    If your use is as a trail vehicle, reliability is of far less importance. But for a lot of people, trail riding is not contrary to your opening statement.

    2) Live axles and coil springs all round. I love flex....

    Yes, they can be straightened although it's not easy to get them perfect. If it's a very slight bow, and doesn't really affect the operation, I would just leave it.

    Same is true for a whole bunch of the older diesel vehicles. This was a significant factor in my decision to swop to diesel.
