      +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.

      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.

      I own a small Jimny, 4WD, coil suspensions, solid axels, diesel engine. It’s small car as we are a family of 4. But even stock config, it takes us everywhere. I totally agree with last comment, no matter the brand, it is only the joy and fun.

      Also you don't see as many older Nissan around because they didn't have the market share like Toyota did in during the 80's and 90's.

      The Xterra (2nd gen) in the United States is interesting though because you can swap a Nissan Titan suspension into the front end for a long-travel suspension with stock components (the UCAs need to be aftermarket, but stock LCAs, if you swap in the M205 diff which bolts right in, then stock titan CVs, stock titan tie-rod ends). It's the only overland friendly long-travel suspension on the market since the parts can readily be found at most autostores.

      As far as electronics in the engine goes- it actually can make diagnosis and repair far quicker if everything is working properly.

      Overlanding as you practice it is not the same in the US. Be careful on your selection of vehicle. My guess is an F-150 would be ill suited to your configuration due to the way you kit out your vehicles. They are more biased towards improved road use and lighter continuous payloads. Same with the Ram, even Chevy for that matter. Your minimum constraint should be a F-250 with particular emphasis on heavier duty components, and durability options. Your over the counter versions would probably not be suitably equipped. You will need to look at the chassis armoring options as in skid plates and off road options. Same with the Ram. Take a look at the power wagon. Something like that gives you a good package to start with. American trucks last a long time and often take high levels of abuse and keep on going. But select one configured for its intended use.

      There is a romance to travelling by Land Rover,but that does come at an emotional price in terms of the work you have to put in(did overland UK to Gambia in a 110 2.5 NAD soft top so have a bit of previous!). However time moves on,next build will probably be a Hilux unless the wild untaned mistress of Solihull comes calling again!

      A Lada Niva is for people who are able to work 10-30 minutes every day on their vehicle. They are ridiculously easy to fix, and (in Eastern Europe at least) there are plenty of spare parts for dirt cheap, so working on them isn't really a big problem. It could even be called fun, if you love your vehicle. But if you treat Nivas well, they can (and will) get you from Budapest to Bamako and back without a single problem. (There is proof :D)
      They are a really simple and rugged design that are meant to do heavy duty stuff.
      They look awful, they are loud, they are smelly, in the summer the driver will rot in the driver's seat from the heat. But they are absolutely loveable despite all their miscomforts and blemishes. (Oh, and they are one of the cheapest 4x4s, if not the cheapest. They are 6-6500 British Pounds in Hungary, I think even cheaper if bought from Russia.)

      Hi Andrew, the Raptor is a V6 Petrol Turbo. would love to see that build! the F150 is now the same size as the F250 by the way. The Raptor is of course a lot wider.
