Why dont you start by specifying:

1. Intended purpose and use
2. Budget

The best option for you would be a used CJ340. You should be able to pick one up for 50 grand, and spend the rest in getting it to a better condition.

either a CJ 340 or the earlier gypsy MG410

u can get oth in under 1 l. For hte Gyspy, maintenance would b lower but running costs will be hihger since it is a petrol

Dodge, how many kms will you be driving every day? Accordingly you can decide whether to go for petrol or diesel.

oho, st.marys or so? hilly and turny turny roads. I just know one or two watering places at pala.

What abt classic? Cant you try kochi mart for these. I think MM still sells it ...export market.

And gypsy is a good choice, but petro..I saw one at Tvm will damn big/wide tyres. Looked great.

Maruti is putting Modern Diesel engines in all its vehicles this year. I would wait for the Diesel Gypsy to get launched..
