Re: Mitsubishi RIG

Anyone have personal experience driving both a Mitsu FUSO and a Sportsmobile 4x4?

I'm curious about the differences in ride quality experience, especially on rough roads.

Re: Mitsubishi RIG

I've driven a FUSO.

It is a Truck, with a capital T. Rides like a truck. Great engine brake! A bit of a climb up, not just a step up like a Ford SMB 4x4. Typical SMB has much better creature comforts - Stereo, AC, power windows, etc.

Re: Mitsubishi RIG

They can be.

Just like a Ford PU, you just have to order it.
