If this is to be a car to last and never sell again, get a GQ patrol or 80 series landcruiser.Landcruisers however have a massive 'landcruiser' tax, Patrols are much better value and just as, and some would argue more, capable due to their rear diff LSD and solid axle (100 series landcruiser has front IFS no thanks)For 10k I would be looking for a 4.2 Diesel GQ with around 300,000 km's on it well looked after. They exist.I got a 2000 GU 4.2 Turbo Diesel off my girlfriends dad and it had 355,000KM on it with a full service history. NOTHING has ever broken major (touch wood) it is still on it's original clutch. I take this out all the time on sand (robe, coffins, lincoln, yalata etc) and trips and I have not got bogged yet. I have regularly pulled mates Landrovers, Hilux's, Prado's and 80 series petrol cruisers out of trouble over and over again. These things are built to last, you would never know the KM's on it without looking. I love the Patrol's, best value serious 4wd by far and once you catch the 4x4 bug and start to want a few mods, patrols and landcruisers are 100x cheaper and easier to mod and don't cost as much as other random 4x4 brands.On another note a recent 4x4 club trip I did out of all the 35+ 4x4's there, the only cars to get up some of the most challenging sand hillclimbs at Robe were 3 GU patrols (including mine) and 1 100 series landcruiser with 50k ++ of mods and an aftermarket turbo. Countless other types (hilux's, navara's, jeeps, landrovers, 80 series cruiser etc) could not get through a lot of stuff the patrols were eating up.All that being said though, a lot of it also obviously comes down to the driver but I guess decent drivers choose their favorite cars too..
