New Works Tow Vehicle

Currently Ive been using this for work

Pretty much as you see it although my alloys are sexier Its a van essentially and has no back seats, was converted by the importer so is a bona fide VAT reclaimable works tool. However its now 4 years old and due for a change. I need something that is rated to 3.5 tonne for towing (which that wasnt) and will get fitted with a tacho. This motor had a 2.7 Merc engine but the new ones only have a 2.0 .. so for a commercial that can do 3.5 tonne (excluding expensive land rover bollox).. at the moment I'm with Isuzu Dmax .. I used to use Troopers in commercial which were brilliant, but I cant get my head around a pick up being good with 3.5 tonne Also I need an enclosed back to secure tools etc.

What do you think guys ??
