For You: 2nd Place 4x4 Vehicle

I love my YJ and belonging to the Jeep family. To me the Wrangler is the #1 off-roading machine. With that said, what vehicle would come in second in your opinion.

My dad used to have an old Toyota FJ Cruiser when I was a kid (along with a CJ, Scout, and other vehicles). I really liked that FJ. It was cherry red and we went on some cool camping trips in it. Even the newer model is pretty sharp IMHO. What say you?

Other options keep me all in the Jeep line of Family.. I mean you can go down a pretty strong list before you get to another company that makes 4x4's

Agree 100 percent cause the "cool" factor alone is worth it to me but that one is to purty. Gimmie one with a shotgun hole I would be set.

Gotta agree with baja, if my Dodge ramcharger was too big, I'd use my 74 Bronco

When I am in Scotland I drive a friend's Land Rover II like the blue one above. It is an early 60s model and very, very nice. There have been no places in Scotland that I have had a problem.

The new ford raptors in super cab or four door are very capable with lockers on both ends and 410 gears and 413 HP 6.2 motor and 6 speed select shift auto. Oh and 13 inches of travel front and rear. Plus 36 gal fuel capacity which I am sure it needs.

I agree but I'm biased since I had one. Huge beefy locked axles with 4.56 gears - electronic sway bar disconnect - 12k Warn - full under body protection - fits 35s with no extra lift and on and on. Here's a poser shot of mine after I put on 35s:

Second place? Hmmm... Suzuki Samarai I guess. Those things are awesome offroad, I never badmouth them since one of them (well built I will say) handed me my ass years ago.
