jgano23 are you a horrible driver? you seem to be pretty focused in crashing. maybe you should invest in some driving lessons.

Walkingstick I think the dude needs to do this:
1. Make a list
2. Research each vehicles pros and cons
3. Make a list of what he/she/it needs
4. Make a selction via the lists.

Gate53 Are you going to be driving this or taking it to Demolition Derby? Is it that your driving skills are poor or should you think of moving to a safer part of the country.

castorj29 What in the hell is this kid talking about. I think you need a Abrams tank,so you can be safe. I hear the gas mileage is pretty poor though.

ammoniaman How well does the wrangler crash? I heard they light on fire when the roll?


Anything with a fuel tank can "light on fire" even without rolling.

Ultimate off road, bad weather, survival vehicle?

I am looking for a primary vehicle or a secondary vehicle. I am leaning more towards a truck as a second vehicle b.c it will allow me to get a Dodge Challenger in two years. I dont know where to begin so maybe someone with more experiance could help me organize my options.

I want the vehicle to be safe as the largest problem I see is crashing in bad weather conditions. I would like to be able to walk away from a bad crash. The vehicle has to have a huge fuel tank to give me some sweet distance. A newer vehicle would have to have amazing differentials. Otherwise, an older vehicle would need lockers.

Seems like the new Dodge 2500 power wagon is perfect except the side crash rating on it is terrible.

I want the truck to be very off road capable in mud, trails, deep snow, rain/ flooded areas etc.

A jeep cherokee sport would be a cheap easy solution but not sure how well it crashes.

I tested an 03 chevy s100 4wd with decent tires and it did not go through anything that I wanted it to. With that said I want something that could go through insanely deep snow, mud, etc.

I will use this vehicle for bad weather driving, weekend fun, hunting, camping and in the event of a diaster such as hurricane Katrina.
Deuce and half- Cheap insurance, fun to drive,
Cons- Slow, big, draws alot of attention. And my GF wont ever ride in one...
M35A3- Would be the one I would go with out of the two b.c it comes the way I want it out of the box.
M35A2 Ugly but is multi fuel and will haul me and all my friends where ever I want.

I rulled the jeep wrangler out b.c I want to move at least 7 people or have room to camp in it. Unless the wrangler does something special that no other vehicle does it has to be rulled out. It would be a nice little off roader though. prob. get me places larger vehicles cant. How well does the wrangler crash? I heard they light on fire when the roll?


Excursion
Would be perfect but gas mileage is like that of a Deuce and half.

F350, F250, or 1995 F150. Expensive and would make me sad if i scratched it.

Jeep Commander 5.7 hemi AWD fully loaded.

2007 Chevy suburban, Escalade ESV, Yukon XL. Most likly would go with the suburban.

Honestly im leaning towards a 1980's chevy suburban with lockers, winch, huge bumper, and 37's. Can take all my friends, drive through anything and is basic enough to fix without tons of computers.

Are there any vehicles I should look into that im not noticing?
