Which Ute?

Hey All,

Im looking at getting a ute.

The reason;

- To transport dirtbike(s), furniture etc

However, I'm not looking for a work-horse, it will be used mainly as a daily driver.

I would like something confortable inside, it must have a manual trans and power steering.

Im looking at spending sub $14 grand.

Ive always had sports cars and was considering; XM Ute + EFI V8 or Turbo 6. So a ute with potential for BIG HP would be a good start. Although Im buying a house and $$$$ are an issue atm.

So anyway, lets hear some suggestions

Something on LPG... Especially if $$$ are important. I'd buy something for 2-4k on gas, and save as much as possible for the house. If you need to personalise it, you also have some $$$ left over.

Re: Which Ute?

Thanks for the feedback EBXR. But wouldnt a gas bottle fill the tray? More like a 5th of the tray - But tray space is important to me.

LPG can go either where the petrol tank is, or where the spare wheel is. The tank in the tray is for those who don't need a ute.
I've had an XR400 in the back of my ute, plus all the camping gear, spare wheel, and still had a fair bit of space left over.
