budget?
The 3 is raw.  Lighter than more agile.  The 6 probably feels like a 747.  And by that contrast, my STI probably feels like the Hindenburg.  So GR's are like the International Space Station.

I would check out GCSurplus.ca
I think they have a yard in Langly, always a nice few say explorer interceptors (sans light bar) around that price that pop up, probably mid-100K kms to 200k kms.

A little different and will meet your requirements

Very high quality. Seriously considering this as I am in Vancouver right now.

Bah I can't do it.
I can't afford the v8 lifestyle.  :'(

13-16l/100km is brutal. And it's probably worse than that with the lift and gears.

If you let me pretend that "landed in BC" from Japan counts towards your desires, we can get something totally rad.

This one literally ALMOST says your name on it. "Duckhai", has recaros, has a chandelier,  little cabinet in back for your nice things, has curtains.

This is orange, has quad baby launchers, lifts and mud tires already, plus fender flares.

3rd gen pajeros are inexpensive and pretty "modern" for what they are, off road capable.

mmmm that orange...

The price landed though is pretty brutal, but shopping import sites and GCSurplus is a great idea.

Didnt come with optional tach but with 90hp maybe its unnecessary. 6055km though.

rad little truck, instrument cluster is super cool, headliner is disgusto

https://www.beforward.jp/toyota/hilux-surf/bg160382/id/1224022/

Ahhhhh with the nice sunny weather, the nice cars are poking their heads out of the snow, ready to bloom into spring!
Finds so far:

mmmm old man smell.
But, nice body and low kms.... but black.... hmmm

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1398336024&siteLocale=en_CA&requestSource=b
This ones nice, white body (not bad), looks a little more beat up/neglected and pics are from summer so thats sketchy. Obviously owned by a douchebag as theyre from quesnel and have an awful sub in the trunk.



https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1420119393&requestSource=b
Honestly the pick of the litter. Color = yes. Ride height = yes. window tint = puke worthy. no hitch but easy fix.



https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1420336047&requestSource=b
I like to consider these a crossover between rad old cars and ittshay new cars. Its kind of itshay looking, but not that big. Im a strong maybe on this boring POS. Honda 4cyl vvtekyoo = yes. low kms = yes.



JDM is hard, theres never the perfect one.
Be nice to get a hilux/hilux surf in gas v6 3.4L because parts parts parts!
But theyre all wrecked or wierd. If a unicorn pops up, 5.5k is not bad landed but kind of in the upper end of my price range.

Yeah, I don’t think you’ll find a 5vzfe within your budget. That’s how I ended up with the Pajero, I was originally bidding on Hilux Surf 3.4 v6’s, lost 3 or 4 at auction, last one I lost would have been like 12,500 with a grade 3.5 and 160,000km and I lost at that bid.

I wouldn’t say JDM there’s never a perfect one, but if you have a set budget it could take a long time to get something in that budget if it’s at the lower end if you’re bidding at auction.

For sure beforward there always seems to be a catch, not the engine you want, not the trans, more kms, rougher shape, etc.. but price wise hard to beat.

your pajero is so sweet. max green jelly.

So far I am pretty happy with it. Bought it totally on a whim, was a slow week at auctions for Hiluxes, so it was actually the first time I searched Pajeros, and just because I seen the "pajero" option in the drop down menu of the search after looking at evo's. Scrolled through knowing nothing, seen the blister fenders and thought it looked really sweet, then just told Mark to bid on it to a max bid of 150,000 yen less than the last Hilux I won at auction, and happened to win it.

If it were me with a budget of 6k, I would seriously consider the 3rd gen pajeros. They're a little more modern, a little more comfortable and sensible.


This one is a 5 speed manual.. you almost never see those. It is non-GDI, which is probably a benefit to me at this point (not that the engine hasn't been reliable, but it hates ethanol), has 4.636 gears (which are good (people usually try and find the 4.88 gears or the 4.90 for 33 and up tires, and 5.26 gears for 35+'s... but it would be difficult to get anything bigger than a 33 on a 3rd gen. 
https://www.beforward.jp/mitsubishi/pajero/bg152476/id/1215964/

It is rough enough that you wouldn't feel bad beating on it, nice enough that it looks good outwardly, and cheap enough to be in budget.


This one looks pretty good, but above budget and 4 speed auto
