Thumbs up Mitsubishi J54

IMHO, This could be considered the Japanese cousin of the early Mahindra Jeeps.

"In 1953 Mitsubishi secured the rights to build the Willys under their own name and the Mitsubishi Jeep was born. In the USA the Willys was built till 1965 but in Japan Mitsubishi had a good thing going so they kept the line in production till 1998. Mitsubishi installed the 4DR5 2.7L 4 cyl Diesel these engines put out a much more useful 100 hp and moved these Jeeps down the highway at 100 km / hr or 60 mph. They return an amazing 35 mpg.

They have full time hubs, reverse turn glow plugs and is the ultra tough 24V system. Crawl down the steepest hill or race up the nearest dune, this gutsy miniature tank can handle it all. The very sharp approach and departure angles will be the envy of all and the superb break over angle will be hard to beat in any stock 4X4. This stock J54 can run 31" tires with absolutely NO LIFT.

This is a true turn-key off road capable unit. Ready for the rugged out doors. Pick a trail and enjoy one of the best off-road vehicles ever made. The beauty of the Willy's body style coupled with the strong and reliable Japanese engineered drivetrain using the D44 out back and the D30 up front, gear to gear t/case with a 2.3 low range, 4.77 differential gearing and you are ready for the great outdoors."

And you can even get one on these shores...IF you've got the cash!
