Hi Jack,

For $4000, any auto diesel Pajero will be a Gen 2 grey import, or a very tired Gen 3. An auto petrol Gen 2 could be a good choice.

Given your location at Kadina, does that mean you'll be doing lots of sand work? If so, I'd have a look at whether there is anything in the Suzuki range that meets your criteria - I'm thinking a Vitara of some description could tick all the boxes for you, and will perform very well on sand.
NT Platinum. DiD Auto with 265/70R17 Toyo MT, Lift, Lockers, Lockup Mate, 3.15 gears, LRA Aux tank, bullbar, winch, lights, lots of touring stuff. Flappy paddles. MMCS is gone!

Project: NJ SWB. 285/75R16 ST Maxx, 2" OME suspension, 2" body lift, ARB 110, 120l tank, bullbar, scratches, no major dents. Fully engineered in SA. NW DiD & auto in place - a long way to go....

You can pick up Gen2 Paj's for pretty cheap depending on kms/condition but they are not cheap to own and run IMO and certainly not something for a young bloke starting out
IMO get something smallish he can beat the hell out of and not GAS if it gets a bit bent.
Something in the Suzuki vitara/GV range, Daihatsu Feroza/Rocky range or around there should be pretty cheap and fun to drive I reckon.

I reckon a nice diesel Gen1 shorty would do very well. He should be able to afford a neat example with his current savings. They are light and nibble so suit really well for sand driving. Engine is pretty easy and I just cant seem to kill mine to be honest.

PA challengers can be good value. Many common parts with the Pajero.
