    first 4x4 Diahatsu Rocky,
    Suziki SJ410
    Suzuki SJ413
    Jeep CJ7
    Land rover Lightweight
    when I lived in US. I had Cherokees and 4x4 pick ups
    Since living in Serbia, Jeep Wrangler, Range Rover, 3 Cherokees, Suzuki SJ410 (again) And Land Rover Discovery.

    The Land Rovers are easily best for 'normal' driving on the roads here. But I prefer the Jeeps for modding and off roading.

    Daihatsu "Feroza" (euro version of the fourtrack i think) - ok for pottering about the fields.

    Had a coupla Audi Quattros (including their pretend off road one) which are great road cars but don't really count!

    90 is the best by far though!

    Had a Series 3 with a V8 in it - spent ages (and a huge pile of cash) getting it sorted - then my Ex sold it for scrap when we split up (I popped round to collect it and the garage was empty...)

    Then had a Shogun 2.6 petrol - had it six months, spent most of that with a tub of filler in my hand fixing the rear wheel arches...

    Then a few cars - mainly Vauxhalls

    Had a Frontera 2.2 LWB Transglobe for a year or so, gave it to the OutLaws and bought the P38 instead

    LOL

    Its SnowFoam (or something like that) - the motor was in a really sh*t state when I got it, so I got a chap to give it a valeting - he covered it with this stuff to strip all the old wax and poop off
