    Yep - donít go near it. Nissan overall have lost the plot in recent years. Only exception would be the Y62 in my opinion. This would also give you power and more comfort than any of the utes.

    If you really need a dual cab and comfort then Iím really not sure what youíd go for.

    Barge pole and wouldn't touch, immediately spring to mind.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    The boss at work has just taken delivery of a Walkinshaw Amarok, not much more expensive than a Ranger Raptor.

    Maybe not exactly what you're looking for though.......

    My FIL drives an Amarok and loves it. Itís manual with the twin turbo 4 diesel.

    I donít have enough knowledge to comment though.

    I thought I read that the next Amarok is going to be a rebadged Ranger?

    Ive got a new ranger base model, seems to do everything very well. Even though the rear springs are leaf is doesnt buck in the back. I have heard the Izuzu are really bad for bucking and unpleasant to drive.
    I have 16 inch wheels which will give me a good choice of tyres and mine came rubber floor mats and a rear diff lock. it was priced under 50k which seems reasonable nowadays.
    I certainly notice the difference in quality from my D3 that I just sold. I ordered mine before Land Rover increased the warranty to a proper 5 Years.
    But Unfortunately LR doesnt sell Utes .......

    I have heard this about the Rangers ie the rear suspension is surprisingly un leaf like in ride-might test drive one.
