Hi Alan,
Welcome to the list.
Do you know which model you are looking at - if you could let us know
the age/engine configuration we can then identify which model you are
looking at and thus answer the questions.
I am working on a database to go up on the site that lists all the
various Landcruiser models with engine configurations, etc - I hope to
get it up on the site over christmas.

That would be my choice as well !
Obviously the 3.0L will have lots more power on the road, and will burn
a bit more fuel as well. Those are not "economy" cars either. Both
engines are quite good, the 2.4 definately isn't fast, but if you're not
into road racing it will do the job. With a good tuneup and a slightly
different tuning you can get rid of the "gutless" feeling that comes
with them right from the factory.
Rust : rear wheelarches, bottom of the bodywork under the doors, rear
bottom corners, bottom of the doors, around the windows... Non-somking,
non-ratlleing engine, fine handling, no noise, Non- oil-coated engine
and transmission and axles regular serviceing... ande everything usual
with 2nd-hand cars.
You need to make sure the cooling system is in perfect order (the head
is somewhat of a weak point), and there is litlle play in the axles,
levels OK and you'd be good to go with a decent set of tires. For the
more wet stuff you may want to extend the axles and transmission
breathers. You will want to spend some time to clean the radiator
throughously after each mud session.
The SWB 70 series will work very well both on and off-road for a
resaonable amount of money, and will not fail on you if you take care of
them.
I have one of the very early, non-turbo 70 series, and absolutely love
it. It's not powerful enough for very long trips, and is not exactly
roomy either, but cannot be beat for solo driving.
Go ahead and buy one !

Coming from the Niva, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
A buddy of mine has about the same mileage with his petrol niva as I
have with my 4.2litre diesel ....
