My daily driver is an '07 SWB shogun "4work" (has no seats or windows in the back), 3.2 diesel.
For an everyday car, it's great. off road not as good as a landrover (for example), but if you're just doing an overland trip, i'd assume you're not really going to be testing your off road ability to the limits (as in a pay & play site), but more likely wanting 4x4 for sand/gravel tracks, with the odd washed out hole thrown in?
I'd say the shogun would be ideal for this, plus it'll be a lot quicker and quieter than a LR, and won't let the dust in
Although I love my LR's, the shogun is still nice
