So apparently a couple of toyota mechanics from the U.S. got flown down to help do some wrenching on this show... a thread was created on pirate that gives some interesting insider perspective:

I just went to the library and looked at the Hundred Days of Darien book for 20 minutes. I could not check it out and bring it home though. But I read some of it and flipped through to see the photos. looks like a good read! I may have to spend the 100.

"The FJ40 used: three starters, one regulator, clutch, master cyl. Both brake and clutch and clutch slave. The Rangy was the biggest pile and took 2x the amount of time the other three did to keep alive. Also 3x the resources were put into the Rangy since it was Clarkston’s truck #1 and the UK made truck #2. The 40 was in the roughest condition to start with since it was used the hardest prior to the show. If we had access to the parts we do in the States we could have had the truck running with no issues."

It's only cause theyre bias... pff

I bet the Suzuki took the least amount of maintenance and did the best over all... but nobody will say it did

That definitely wasn't Richard Hammond driving the FJ40 in that close up on the road...
