The best off-roader I've ever driven was a 1985 Chevy Suburban with 1-ton running gear and a lower-than-standard final drive, set up special for our land survey crew. The wheelbase was so long and the truck was weighed down with a bunch of tools and survey equipment. We could go up and down some scary-steep hills and it tracked straight and rarely lost traction.
That was an awesome job for a young guy; 4-wheelin' and hiking all over the Colorado Rockies and getting paid for it.
