They're sweet though.

Ok i can see how this can possibly be justified. It's for a government department, not a private vehicle. It's purpose is to reach serious off road terrain and flooded areas. I just hope that they have dedicated drivers who will be trained in such and will be able to handle the vehicle as intended, because real off roading requires some serious training in how to overcome dire situations. And the public expects to see these vehicles in action during the next flood, bringing relief to the residents. We don't want to be asking why they bought those things and they just sitting there... and we know that is exactly what going to happen. Or that they broke down and can't be serviced locally, so it will sit in a yard to rot.

Of course they could have got something cheaper and just as reliable off road. What happen to all the Prado style? But is not their money right?

Seems like the preference of MPs is extending to government agencies. I think at least 3 MPs bought Jeeps recently. Like lifestyle has a good sales rep. Hmmmm

Yes but are they significantly better than a similar spec'd out Hilux?

ODPM doh even be wakin when rain fallin, them goin outside to rescue people?

i would really like the transport commission to comment on these vehicles as the preface for the 'what' and 'how' off roaders can do and be guarded by the laws instead of targeted.

ODPM falls under natsec.
Natsec has a lot of exemptions for govt vehicles, no?

I have no issue with what was chosen to be used or how its being outfitted. Govt agencies exist to benefit from special accommodations at times.. so stop whining about "oh dem have light bar"...DF yuh tink it is?....steups....

I do however, take issue with maintenance.

I know for a fact the person in charge of that ODPM project is no longer attached to ODPM nor is he in the country. He is an avid off-roader (has a Renegade CJ7 outfitted to do such). This person was also not tasked with training his successor in the ways of the Bish.

also the entire project was funded by the US Gubment. Not that that lends credence to some of allyuh "BUH DEM HAVE LIGHT BAR!!" ...

Ofc the above statements are made not knowing if ODPM has such personnel trained to do such eh. If so, le pie on le face is warranted.

I dont get it...zero succession planning. But as we love to say "we like it so".

Similarly kitted workhorse Landcruisers wouldve been better vehicles and would run forever without much special treatment....probably even more expensive though...but I dont see these jeeps lasting very long with local service history and modern Jeep reliability issues..

trained or not, exempted or not, they dont do one fart when push come to shove. the most u does see is the corporation with their backhoe and dump trucks and peeps with thier lil boat and truck and rubber boots.

me eh mind they have light bar, even if they dont use them,,, #public servants could stunt too. but that same accommodation can be afforded to the citizen enthusiasts or those who actually use those mods for their own work.
#bushman could stunt too

I take your point. but, answer me this...are our local citizen's responsible enough? Who is going to govern "I need that for work" from "well i see PongRaj have so i must have it too!!" types?.... you do realize that is going to be a logistical nightmare to an already (at best) struggling system that is clawing its way out of an archaic state?

Then you have those who do use it for thier work and keep it in the bush out of sight being asked to document their mods for "proof of life" and having an issues with it ' IZ YEARS I HAVE MEH (enter random 4x4 mod) on my JIMNY DAN!!!"...

Again...i take yuh point...but you do see how an untrained administrative middle manager at ECIAF (Becuz dem used to have dem UN sponsored Prado and Unimog and dem does sell big patchoi for small money (talking that...hadda call and place meh orders yes)...so dem qualify to Certify ALL off-road "fit for Use Program" applications will simply take a money and say "heh yuh certified"?

You guys ain't stop to think that it may be the work of some technocrat that witnessed how effective the 4x4 enthusiast rescue response was with the bad flooding in greenvale etc?

Like it or not this may tantamount to a nod to the 4x4 enthusiast..
