    Obviously a land rover is going to be one of the best for ultimate off-road capability they must be on of the few 4x4s left that are actually designed to travel though a field.....

    If you wanna stick with vauxhall then the late fronteras are not bad at all. We still have ours as a runabout and for towing and its never put a foot wrong. Certainly doesn't deserve the bad reputation they have....

    And for cheapness you can't beat the little suzikis...

    Do not over look the Kia Sportage, they can be picked up pretty cheap (A P plate for about 6-700 quid). They have switchable 4x4 and low range and a grunty 2.0 Mazda engine

    There is a car dealer near me thats selling a Discovery for £900 and I think you will get it for less as its a P/Ex .
    Also another place near me takes in the cars from the dealers that have gone through the new P/ex scrappage scheme and they have a SWB Izuzu Trooper Mk2 which looks like the Vx Monteray. Might be worth a word even if you had to use it for use on private land.

    The3y do sell some on but they are just sat there being slowly broken down for parts.
    They also had a J plate Cavalier which was mint apart from a scratch on the N/S wing but no rust at all and 80,000 miles, even the interior was imaculate compleate with standad radio cassete, such a waste

    Don't rule out a sangyoung musso or lada niva. Both cheap and excellent in the mud. Alternatively you won't go wrong with a mk1 trooper a patrol or a cruiser. The other vehicle to always consider is a classic rangie. Cheap to buy especialy in V8 form and good off road and cheap to insure on classic insurance. Same basic chassis as a Mk1 Disco but generaly better looked after. Do you plan to use it as anything more than just and off roader? Stick pre 2001 for cheap tax. Obviously these are personal opinions. Remember anything trendy will cost you more and if its for offroad only then the mechanicals are far moreimportant than the looks.

    1 last comment. Defenders are excellent and one day I will own a fully kitted out one but everything that's standard on a jap vehicle is extra on a defender. Even Jap pick ups such as L200 and hilux's come with full lockers. Defenders come with nothing.
