Rtv

Thought I would see if anyone has a honest opinion about the RTV utes.

Thinking of getting one but live up in the pilbra and finding people who know something about them isnt so easy to do here.

Willing to listen to anyones veiws either good or bad.

The more I know now the easier to make a choice later I think.

Re: Rtv

I reckon they're pretty cool and I'd love a Boss powered one. The V8s seem to sit in yards though..... a bit expensive given the opposition.

Re: Rtv

I think they're great. Look tough and go well. All the reviews I've read have been good. The only thing stopping me getting one was the fact that I couldn't go past the sports appeal of an XR.

But depends what you want to do with it too. Its off road/dirt road capabilities would barely be used with me, but I liked the appeal of it, especially the V8.

Re: Rtv

Has anyone driven one yet or heard of any problems they might have?

Hope to get out for a test drive in the next fortnight.

Re: Rtv

Bigbugga, have you had a look at the uteman site? Look in "Utetalk", under Ford there is a RTV topic with some feedback from RTV owners. Basically all good though, really the only major different bit from a normal ute is the diff which is the V8 diff even in 6cyls with an air locker.

Thanks for that.
