      @4xoverland Andrew, You truly do a wonderful job of keeping it real. You can have favoritisms yet still see the advantages or disadvantages of owning and operating something else. You give a very well rounded, balanced view on what you have experienced. And what people should do in my opinion is be open minded like US. Because like you, I realize that there are pros and cons to EVERYTHING. Specific vehicles for specific environments. Specific designs for specific use. Using the numbers and stats for making logical arguments for what has been shown on paper. And then taking the #'s and tossing them aside and giving the personal experience to back up your own interpretation of what you know. You do not bash something you have no experience with. It is refreshing to see someone speak to these things with a very balanced, open minded mind set. And I do not think there is anything you said here that I disagree with. In fact, I was chuckling along at different points because WE think so much alike and interpret things and express things with such a relaxed view point. You are open to different ideas and to learn. As am I. It is a shame so many are wearing blinders to only see what they want to see. Your rounded view point of top manufacturers to minor(cheap) ones and why they are defined as such was spot on. If people try to argue with you for what you have said here, it is because they do not appreciate what it means to be open minded. Nice workshop.

      I'm a owner of 3 Toyotas and 1 Jeep Wrangler and my Jeep has been reliable as my Toyotas. I take my Jeep off road more because of the front solid axle.

      Ok ; a Volvo XC90 D5 AWD 2015 then , I listened very carefully the last minute 😉.
      Me wonder if that could be an awesome overland vehicle 🤔. With a Haldex AWD...
      Other suspensions...
      I keep on thinking & daydreaming.

      I’d personal go with the Ford F-250 mate if it’s a possibility.

      I have one completely set up here in Australia for overland and it’s a beautiful heavy duty truck. It’s build quality is just an over sized land cruiser.

      Really worth a look I think for your American trip and there size shrinks around you after a short period of owning one.
      I could never go back to a small mid size truck now, I love the F250.

      I have a Jeep Cherokee XJ and a Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ. Both of them has been amazing as Overlanders. I have herd others having problems with their jeeps but I’ve not had much of a problem with mine. My XJ has over 200,000 miles and everything on the motor, and transmission is original. It has the 4.0 inline 6 cylinder in it. And it has been nothing but a beast. The WJ I have had to do work to it because of all the new sensors they’ve put in them but that’s been it on the WJ and it also has the 4.0 inline 6 cylinder motor. Theres good and bad in all these vehicles I have to say I got lucky with mine but I know a person that had all kinds of trouble out of his Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport truck. So like I said there is good and bad in all vehicles sometimes you get lucky with one and sometimes you don’t.

      I wish you'd expanded on your enjoyment of the Nissan X-Trail. I am looking at one of these actually, a petrol model (due to new and coming emissions charges here in London). My main use would be 95% on road with some very light off road use. Was considering pairing it with KO2 tyres.

      Hi Andrew, my first 4x4 was a Discovery 1 V8 at age 23, It was a very good 4x4 but very high maintenance , had that for 3 years, switched to a Jeep GC 4.7 V8 which was in my opinion a bit better then the Discovery in power but off road the same but diffrent driving styles. I changed the Jeep after 2 years for a 3.5 V6 Triton 4x4, which was as ugly as a long drop toilet in the bush but a amazing bakkie.  I now have a Toyota Fortuner V6 2x4 manual which I am so proud of, have it now for almost 4 years and never even thought of tradeing it. But I will say this, my next 4x4 will be a Toyota, Probably a Cruiser.

      I'm a mechanic, heavy duty. The more complicated you make things the easier it is to break, and IT WILL break, normally in the most inconvenient spot. ie: Blow a hydraulic power steering hose at 140 kms rounding a curve,under a concrete bridge. Been there ,done that.

      Andrew, all F150 Raptors have the tuned version of the 3.5L gas V6 Bi-Turbo engine and 10 speed gearbox that's in my '17 F150 Supercab. 375hp & 470lb.ft in mine and 450hp & 510lb.ft of torque in the Raptor. Only the smaller Ranger Raptor sold in Australia has a diesel. The regular F150 is available with a 3.0L Turbodiesel (250hp & 440lb.ft), though less powerful than the 3.5 EcoBoost gas V6.

      Andrew are you sure your pal didn't buy a Ford Ranger in Botswana? To my knowledge, the F150 is not sold in Africa.

      Very nice video. I live in Tajikistan a small country in the Central Asia and I really love my LC Prado 120 with 4l engine. Unfortunately we are so far from the normal world and it is so difficult to find any parts here to upgrade vehicle for overlanding or off road driving. And I think Toyota vehicles even stock models are great to use in such countries as mine with hard terrain, mountains and little paved roads. But of course people here choose different models and mainly the ones cheap to maintain, so I see Lada Nivas around a lot and they are real off roaders with very little comfort of driving yet.
      But I have another recommendation for you. I am not sure if you manage to find it for you testing but I you need to try UAZ - Russian off road vehicle. This is what many people in post Soviet Union are using for off road trips, hunting or fishing trips and so on. Check it once if you find it, that experience makes one's life complete with emotions : -)

      Great video Paul. Extremely informative and insightful. Of Toyotas, you spoke more about the Land Cruiser than the 4Runner. When price is included, is 4Runner a valid option? Going the other way, what about the corresponding Lexus? Thank you. I will now search for your Ford F150 Raptor review, hoping that you managed to get one since publication of this video. Ciao.
