Can't disagree with anything above except perhaps if they are limited to running on a farm and such like (in an unstressed state and the conditions they were designed for, they are quite reliable and tough. Once heavily loaded or severely tested they don't do as well as a Land Cruiser of the same age.Much less power. (Significantly smaller engines.)
More prone to rust in the important places like the chassis.
Bodywork is good. (Aluminium alloy.)
More prone to breakdowns. (Poorer engineering throughout.)
