New Tacoma pick up will do the job, nice ride, super reliable, but a bit flashy going to third world countries though.
roof top tent in the box, kept just below the cab height for the wind resistance.
Nissans and toyotas are really supported down there, keep your driveline as stock as possible for ease of finding parts
The 3 litre diesels in the early to mid 90 toyota surfs would be another great choice....

What is the fuel availability and quality like where you are going ?
Some modern fuel systems don't like dirty fuel at all and can cause major problems
Maybe try asking on some of the forums more geared to those types of trips B
I read a lot of cool info on a site called expedition portal
Think that was the name anyway

Well that budget pretty much takes you back to a jeep
Even a halfway decent Toyota would be double or more than a decent jeep
I was thinking something you could crash in the back of if you had to
And you would be comfortable driving it

ya i really wanna stay w a gas pot because most of these country's have "gas stations" bottle's on the side of the rd for scooters no matter were you end up ... maybe a 93 -98 grand cherry big enough i can sleep in it when needed and store gear w small roof rack

honestly ive never found a toy product im comfortable in the seats are to close to the floor for my body type need oba a small winch possibly a 3500 quad winch 2" lift and 30 x 9.5 tire to keep fuel costs down the problem w them is all the electronics and impossible to find a standard trans in them maybe swap in a aw4 as thats one of most bullet proof auto trans out there

Suzuki are in all those country's and fuel consumption rate is ridiculously good . space for gear would be tight but they are the go to for many of the third world so repairs and parts would be possible if needed .

i drove my long body as a daily and a wheeler for almost ten years and i think a wheel bearing was all i had to replace in all that time you could take the whole sj apart with a Phillips screwdriver and a adjustable wrench.as far as room is concerned i fit fine . Sean and i wheeled in it together and hes like 6.5 and 375lbs and if we fit shoulder to shoulder that b's got no worries.
