Thanks again for the thoughts. The Isuzu MU looks awesome and my fav at the moment but they appear to be few and far between, I have just missed a great little one on ebay was local and sold for £526.... :-(

Thanks for all the advice, have ended up with a 1997 Frontera, only 60k and has lots of work done by a main dealer so I am very happy paid £900 and is taxed and MOT'd till the end of this year.... Thanks for all the help....

Bargain. You won't regret it.
Just make sure you use the 4 WD regularly to stop things seizing up. Not a Frontera fault but something you should do with all 4 WDs that aren't permanent.

And always remember to engage the front hubs BEFORE you need them!


Good Luck with the motor.

Mine doesn't have locking front hubs. Not manual ones anyway. Thats the 2002 version. Not too sure about the 97 Motor as its a totally different engine etc.

They look like auto hubs. If you can find an early one with freewheeling hubs they are worth getting-they don't go wrong and your fuel bill will go down a bit. It also means you can use low range with only 2 wheels driven so the centre diff doesn't wind itself up.
