You probably weren't going to bother repairing the hail damage but out of interest did you ever get a quote? Wondering what it's going to end up costing us to fix the crv - if it's traded in current condition it's worth at least a grand or 2 less as well :/

6,000. Crv will cost more - they are made out of thin metal so the damage will be worse.

GQ/GU and 80 series are the most capable 4WD as an all rounder money can buy. Sure there are some things other 4WD's can do better, but these are a great all rounder.

If you guys remember my blue one, it was setup for extreme off-roading (making it a pig on the road), mum had a GU series 4 that was setup for touring (not as capable on the extreme stuff, but right at home on outback Australia's roughest roads. It did crossed the Simpson desert no problems), and stock they handle traffic duties well (as well as a budget 4WD does), and is perfect for the beach and remote camping.

GU is shitttttloads more comfortable in traffic than the GQ - they are trucks.

but yeah agree with you about capable trucks. i would add 105 and 110's to that list....?

Hrmm.. I havent heard of a 110 series, only the 100 (IFS) and 105 (Coil Sprung Solid Axle). Only the 105 I would add to the list, the IFS had no where near the off road capabilities

Ahh yes they aren't bad. Wranglers aren't too bad either, just expensive to mod as they are quite short and lifting them plays havoc with driveline angles
