Hmm might have to consider that as a future utility car. I love my modded bugeye, but I could use a more casual and less flashy ride...lol

It was a 1997 (IIRC) Nissan 4x4 pickup, pretty basic model. Options included a heater and a key, LOL.

I had a couple of CJ7s and an '83 Ford Bronco before that.

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.
