I'm looking for a 4x4 with a seperate chassis, Landrover/Rangerover are the obvious ones. Wanting something about 106-110 inch wheelbase for a project that's buzzing around in my head. Thought you guys may have makes/models that I haven't thought of or forgotten about. Cheers chaps.

 Frontera lwb 108"
Quite a few to chose from when you start thinking of pickup trucks. Hilux etc.

Had thought about Frontera but uncertain of reliability etc. I know some 4x4's don't have seperate chassis now, Vitara as an example. Also thinking of Shogun but too long.

Up to 2005 the Vitara had a ladder chassis but was only 97" wheelbase.
Thought the Mitsubishi was 109".
Unlikely to get a good LR 110 at reasonable money these days. I know cos I've been looking.

My son in law bought a Discovery which had had a chassis replacement and still had to replace parts of it a few years later.  Body was ok but everything else went wrong, he hated it by the time he parted with it!
