Though I never got into any serious off-roading as of now and hence can live with 2wd.
Rajat,

The 207 crew-cab you drove was actually meant for people!!

With independent front suspension (IFS) & optional 4x4.

New 207/Xenon range comes with front semi-elliptical axlewhich is meant for GOOD CARRIER only.

If you want a good pickup then buy old 207 crew-cab with IFS & mod it.

some pics for reference.

Thanks jeepster! the information was enlightening. I always thought that the suspension on the pick-up version similar to the crew cab with just a couple of extra leafs for the "rigid suspension" variants. My bad that i dint bother to ever see the spec sheets.
