I haven't been around 4x4's for quite a while and am wondering what make is best. Ya, I know, they are all good depending on who you are. What i need is reasons too pick a make of 4x4 to start with. I want to mainly camp and travel old ( decmitioned) logging roads. I had a 74 FJ40 Landcruiser that I really liked, but the wiring harness was crap, and after 4 or 5 fixes, I got rid of it. BTW, It burned up, due to the harness, on the guy that bought it from the dealer. Besides, I'm now married again & need somthing big enough for the 2 of is to sleep in.
Please, not a lot of techincal stuff as, like I said, I'm old and my head is pretty full. To put new info in, I have to push old info out, and I still need to remember how to dress myself and what the bathroom is for, etc.:)

Thanks

the cheapest solution to get a rig that will do what you want (in my opinion) would be another old land cruizer or an 85 or older Toyota 4 runner.

If you like jeeps maybe an xj but they didin't have very good axles in them.

an older 4 runner has solid axles, very reliable, covered back to slee in and for some reason those things don't tip over (really, i dont' get it).

anyway here is a starting point
