Research done, common faults identified, worries about the grenading 3.0 engines alleviated and good idea of the spec I wanted, the 4-month search for ‘my’ Patrol began.

After looking at, and discounting 8 or 9 trucks, I finally found this beauty about 100 miles away from where I live. Its a 2004 3.0di GR SVE, Black over black with privacy glass and grey leather interior.

It has a few small issues; overdue a service, leaking NSF swivel and leaking rear crank seal. Apart from that its in really good condition.
