As for the best 4x4 it's got to be Jap (Pajero Evolution 3.5 v6 or Toyota Landcruiser Colorado for boat launching)
You have obviously never watched a camel trophy video then...........

Yeh I've seen that web-site Olly, in my favs now .

Jimbo, I'd like to see that video and your pictures. Has Andy still got his site?

Most places I've looked at are way too extreme for me. I can't afford to damage my 4x4 as is everyday transport for me and the family but am keen as mustard to give the 4x4 a good test, an open terrain would be the best option I think.

I was once using a 4.2 Landcruiser to pull out the boat in Dover on the public slipway - and its is covered in shingle- and it WOULD NOT PULL it out.
