P38 4.0 vs 4.6 Trail rig

Have the choice of two P39 Range Rovers one 4.0 and other 4.6. Local, farm trail use only . The 4.6 has a bad trans. Any opinions of which is better ?

Um, given a choice I'd probably pick the one without the bad transmission, but what do I know. They'll both have the same peccadilloes.

They are limited in after market add ons but may do what you want.

I had a 1999 p38 with 3" lift, south down under carriage protection and a true dual exhaust loved it.

Do a you tube search Range Rover Guy Fawkes and you can hear it a mile away btw I was not driving, the new owner was and he didnt let up on the throttle.
