    Default Do I need a Land Cruiser?

    I'm looking for something that can tow 3 tons, with a 1 ton flow bin on the back. Alternatively, I suppose I could place two (three?) flow bins on the back of a flat bed truck and tow a smaller trailer. The rig will not have to travel big distances, but must be reliable. It will live on the West Coast. At the moment, I'm looking at 75-series Cruisers, but I'm wondering whether I shouldn't expand my search a bit. Budget around R200K, if possible.

    Any suggestions?

    Small truck is a much better option. You will not be able to legally tow 3 tons with a 75 Cruiser.

    There is a "maximum towing weight" thread that will give you a lot of the info you need.

    Oi, I forgot about the 1.5 ton legal rating on the Cruisers. :/
