    Got a 300TDI 4x4 single cab, but its for work not for play. Its my third one in 9 years. Started with 2.8. This one is on 105000km mutch more smooth ride than the KZT.

    My second drive is a 280DT D/C 4x2 difflock.
    In the market at the moment.

    Isuzu owners are the quiet bunch. They don't have to prove that they have good 4x4s, they just know!

    Fuel cons. 10.5-12km/l ,Onroad 120-130km/h [Im driving 110-120km/h]and uphill it come down to 80-90km/h.It dont get up the steep hill at Vleesbay dunes but the rest i do with ease and in the Transkei i went where other vehicles decided to turn around. Furthermore its as reliable as a rock if i can say so.

    Agree with 4e (although sometimes I don't)
    I have just bought a 300 TD D/C 4x4, had a 280 Frontier 4x4 before, SAC stage 3
    Never had any problems, got this one before Isuzu also start with their CRD engines, which I believe will be mid 2007.
    One thing I can't get used to is no short gear stick, just a small finger needed to change drives

    Gordz, I think it is because they mostly spend their time around the campfire at www.isuzuoffroad.co.za
