I would DEFINITELY prefer the width and stability of the 100 / 200 series over the narrow body GX series.
But then I do silly side angles on sand dunes with stuff on my roof rack, if you have to squeeze between stuff you might prefer the GX.
On road I definitely prefer the wider Cruiser. Both have a lot of body roll but with the 100 / 200 you learn to trust it and let it lean
If you're gonna load up the roof and aren't concerned about pin striping, go wide. Other than that, both are extremely capable.
Do they require mud flaps on the road out there? I know they do in aus and my 100 series flaps sell well there. Curious about UAE/rest of that region.
