    Diesel because it will fit your needs a whole lot better.

    That was supposed to be read with a lot of sarcasm... You never told us your needs so how can I make a recommendation based on your needs?

    The price already went down. For the cost go to JD website and fiddle around with their "build you own" utility.

    What are your needs?

    Any deep water crossings?

    The diesel hpx doesn't have a clutch enclosure option.

    Diesel engine should outlast the gas model.

    it all depends on your needs.

    Sounds like you will be using your machine more for work than play; go diesel.

    the hpx will let me do way more things than the 4x2 could even dream of.

    If you get by with a 4x2 you will be amazed with a hpx. Diesel will get a bit better milage and if you have a diesel tank sitting on your property that uses the non road tax diesel you will be saving money. If you don't have a diesel tank it might be worth looking into the gas for the money saved in the initial purchase. If you plan on keeping it for years and years the diesel would also be in your best interest.
