All things being equal, except vehicle size, which would you prefer to make a hunting lease truck - 2001 Ford Expedition or 2004 Land Rover Discovery? I like that the Rover is smaller and good reputation, what do you think?

I would go with the ford only for the availability and cost of repair parts....older vehicles that sit a lot require maintenance and repairs....either would be fine tho....

^^Agree with this, even though the LR probably would have higher resale value down the road. I would also consider initial cost into the other possibles such as, maintenance, insurance (could be damaged by rodents, maybe even stolen from a lease), don't think fuel would be a deal breaker for just running around the lease.

Rovers are widely known to have gremlins, especially electrical ones. It would be one of the last vehicles I would park extendedly at a place where mice/rats might get to a wire.

I have a 91 Bronco that is Electronic Fuel Injected. While it isn't an Expedition, I can say that it sat last for 10 months with a solar charger clipped to the battery. I checked the oil and coolant, jumped in, and it fired right up. I am more than happy with it for what it is intended for. I leave the hood cracked open with a tie down to limit how far up the hood can go while sitting. I have been told by a few people that rats will be less likely to nest and spend time in an engine compartment if it isn't as closed off from the elements.
I say all that to say....I vote for the Ford.

I'd go with the ford just because its much easier to work on. My lease ride is a little S10... Not pretty, not fast, not much of anything. Buts she's quiet and the heater works good so I'm in!
