Here in the States they are notoriously horrible. Only one I've ever seen on the trail was an 80s Range Rover. I've seen a few lifted ones around, but they're mostly just driven by the yuppies. New ones are a joke. Too bad cause I like the look of the older ones and they're quite capable, just don't want to deal with working on them. We have an Xterra with some upgrades, but I plan to get another Jeep (05-06 Unlimited Rubicon) in a couple years.

I switched from Jeep to Xterra and much prefer the Nissan (better all around vehicle). I've never been stuck in either. The Jeep gave me more confidence, but the Xterra has not gotten stuck either, even in deep sand. The Jeep was just more "stable" offroad, for lack of a better word.

My Unimog and Ram 2500 are the family 4x4's at moment. Thinking of building a dedicated overland rig Montero,Xterra or 4runner over the winter though.

Wife has a 99 Grand Cherokee, both boys have Cherokees, all of which have done well. Have a 97 F150 that goes surprisingly well too. Oh and a '52 Willys M38A1. For use around the farm. A blast on the trail but you have to tow it there or plan an extra day for travel time.

I drove all sorts of 4wd vehicles for a living for decades. They have more similarities than differences. Driver skill is more important than which vehicle you have. I only had to walk out once with a broken axle and never got towed in 30 years.

I used to own a '96 Discovery. I can't deny how capable it was off road. Absolute beast of a car but parts cost/availability are just awful. I currently drive a '92 Jeep YJ. Parts aren't as bad and they are easy to find. It's also really easy to work on, especially with the lift. There's also nothing more fun than having the top and doors off.
