We have 2- a 2014 Mazda CX-5 awd (wife's daily driver) and a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited. The Mazda does "ok" off-road but in the tough stuff there's no comparison to the Jeep. Bone stock and I call it "The Beast!

Unless I missed it...I can't believe Im the first to chirp in with a 3rd Gen 4runner.

Was a jeep guy, swapped to toyota and haven't looked back. Haven't turned a wrench, either.

I've got a 2002 Grand Cherokee Overland and a new Toyota Hilux. Plan on a suspension lift and new tyres on the Hilux this month.

I've restored my 1989 Ford f250 XLT Lariat, with a rebuilt 5.8 liter, lifted, all leather interior and black-out paint and trim. It's definitely not a daily driver at 10mpg

1911 F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab 4x4 with the 7.3L Powerstroke diesel. She's too heavy for deep mud, but with dual air lockers, and me doing my part, she'll get me most any place she can fit.




My boy has a Montero. Pretty nice little vehicle. I'd love something smaller to play around in, but at least I have enough payload capacity to take the whole family and plenty of cargo.

I have a friend that has a 60's Land Rover. Nice rig, but every time he takes it out, he spends the next month hunting down parts to repair it or modify it.

As for us, all of our current vehicles are 4X4s. '95 Jeep ZJ, '92 Geo Tracker, '74 Dodge Power wagon, I also have a '78 Ramcharger, but it is has been down for a while, it runs but won't pass smog, or a gas station (it has a 440).

Our kids all have 4X4s also; '95 XJ, '89 diesel Ranger, 90's Toyota 4 Runner, '75 Power Wagon, and a Suzuki Samurai with full width axles and 44" tires.

Yesterday at the VA I got this cool license plate thing for the front of my truck.
I had to modify it, my plate and the holder that my plate mounts to, so I went to the hardware store and got some stainless bolts, cap nuts and thread locker and put it all together. I think it looks pretty nice.
We have lots of choices for Veterans Plates here in VT. U.S. Flag, Campaign Ribbon, VFW, etc;.

I had much more fun when I got transferred to Field Artillery, so I no longer dwell on my time with the Cav.

2015 Jeep Cherokee.

Best riding, quietest, and most comfortable car I have driven in my life. Not a true 4x4, but it has a very low first gear, an intelligent AWD system with brake lock differentials that mimic limited slip diffs, and can completely disconnect the rear driveshaft to get better gas mileage on the freeway.

It gets the same gas mileage my old vw golf did: 21 city and 29 freeway.

1999 GMC Sierra 2500 standard cab (6.0 Vortec, 4l80e trans, tow package, posi, skid plates). It's been a great truck, once I replaced a the crappy steel lines with stainless ones.
