    Purchase of a 2010 3-door ZR

    Hi,

    I am new to this site. I am looking to purchase a 2010 ZR with 70K on the clock. One owner, bought it to tow a 2.5 ton van. Great condition & my mechanic only found a few issues in the pre-purchase inspection (leaking front left shocker & a few scratches). My issue is this. The cruise pack was fitted and so no crawl control which I assume also means no hill descent control either. I do a lot of highway driving so the radar cruise will be great but we are on the doorstep of Fraser Island and plan to go there several times a year, as well as other light to moderate off roading. I have no interest in heavy off roading like climbing rocks etc. I'd really appreciate feedback on whether crawl would be useful on Fraser and whether I should wait for a ZR with the off-road pack to become available. The great thing is the one I am looking at is 5 kms down the road. Amazing given there are only 5 for sale on carsales.com in the whole of Australia!

    CRAWL appears to be quite useful

    However, low tyre pressures and momentum will keep you out of trouble most of the time.

    I'm assuming the cruise pack losses the rear diff lock too ?
    CRAWL control and the rear locker are definetly worth it if you are going to use them

    Yes, no rear diff lock. CRAWL would be nice to have in the back pocket for that 'rainy day' but I would think that with low range and centre diff lock the SWB Prado will get me most places. Like amts said, good preparation & sensible driving are the key. Would anyone recommend an after market rear diff lock (assuming that's possible)?

    Definetly possible and E locker is the go

    Rear locker will double its off-road capitbity
    CRAWL is very impressive As well will turn all 4 even if one wheel has all the load

    Daren, Mate as a owner of the SX none of the above are fitted to mine. It works great. I have fitted an Eton E-Locker for piece of mind. I would not pass up the opportunity to purchase if it suits your needs.
