We get it, you are a Land Rover guy, in your head the Land Rover is the original 4wd, and anything else is a just a copy.
Of course you are welcome here, and you obviously have some valuable knowledge that others could benefit from, but please, take a chill pill, and try not to be so authoritarian.
me authoritarian?? yet your the one calling me the land-rover guy, i also have a jeep and a Jakaroo ( bighorn i think) sitting in the drive way.
have just been swapped out of the Pootoool and into a toymotor by work. i do on average 1800klm a week.
next weekend i will be camping with my son. thats a 1200 klm round trip.
i think with the miles i do and the rough country i do as well as the variety of vehicles i drive and in some cases demolish. i do have some idea of what the weak points are in each brand.
your insulting accusation of being a one eyed land rover type is at best childish.
what i have a problem with is people posting misinformation or there opinions IE my grand fathers mate's brother was told by a guy in the pub that land-rover axles are shit. etc
yet i have blown 7 Pootrool CVs for 1 LR axle and that was drivers front and about 25 years old. cruiser wheel bearings, a constant PITA.
so you can keep your opinions, and ill stick with the facts ok.

I also had a series of CV failures (although 3 were from Repco - and broke the stub-axle not the CV housing) - then changed the front axle housing and no problems since. That's a LWB with aftermarket turbo doing some reasonably hard driving. I think the housing was bent putting extra load on the CV's... And Cruiser wheel bearings tend to fail when water enters through improperly sealed hubs. Otherwise pretty reliable in my experience...

You will need more than BFG A/T's though unless you like fitting chains & providing you would stoop to driving with an elderly, dull, mostly straight, rattly, IFS, petrol Pajero.
