Oh Peter....surely you understand that I make my arguments from my perspective? You know I don't do the afternoon club outings, I go out by myself to absolutely nowhere AZ and I consider a winch to be a requirement (after having been stuck in the middle of nowhere and realizing winch $$$ < recovery $$$). Tomorrow and Saturday I'm exploring the Verde River only about 35 miles north of my house but I'll be solo and SOL if I'm stuck. Two weeks ago I was miles up a wash outside of Lake Havasu City and I got good and stuck with no one anywhere nearby and no cell signal.
Coming from a person who considers an LR4 a viable off-road vehicle, in a state where nearly all ROW 110s are legal, it is pretty funny.
You have no valid arguments.

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but a 1993 110's NAS MSRP was $39,900, which is $84,882.07 in today's dollar. If that's accurate, then historically, the Grenadier's pricing is not out of line. Unfortunately, I've been unable to find UK MSRPs for comparison.

True...just seems like more money now.

I think it's a sweet truck....a fantastic and fascinating truck...as well as an important non-establishment objet d'art that only comes along once in a great while. But it also has some shortcomings and it's overpriced. That being said, I can't wait to drive Peter's. :)

That's all fine and dandy. And like I said, if you have the money and it floats your boat, great. I could buy two Tacomas for that price. After I brought them home I could outfit them in ways to numerous to list here, as a search for aftermarket parts would turn up page after page after page. Do a search for Ineos Grenadier and tell me what you find. So, its a really expensive "workhorse" off-road vehical that can't be modded in any advantageous way. Where have I seen that before?:unsure:

So, I was thinking I would shift my focus to a full sized pickup truck to replace my Sequoia. My wife crapped all over that idea as she hates pick up trucks, even if she doesn't drive them. Considiring she is a good sport to the Rover, RZR, current stable of dirt bikes and trailers, and the past revolving door of toys, I am not going to push on that. This brings me back to SUV's that can tow at least 7,000 pounds. Jeeps and Bronco's can't, and this puts me into the likes of Tahoe, Expedition, new Sequoia, etc. Any Sequoia, and espeically Sequioa TRD currently cost more than the Grenadier and I am not all that interested in Tahoe's and Expeditions.

Trading style for size, I am at least staying in the game by placing a pre-order for a low spec Grenadier and will keep thinking until I get the price sheet from the dealer and have to fully commit. Only options I am adding are lockers, blue paint, white roof, and floor mats at the moment. I may bail on the color scheme and go back to Scottish White as PM did, not sure yet.

I’ve been looking at Tundras with the twin turbo V6 and the off road package (not the turd pro, just the turd off road package). Our local dealers are putting $15-20k markups on the turd pros right now.
