That's impressive.This thread has been tremendously useful. My thanks to everyone.
... and after adding the Magnaflow exhaust, K&N intake, and Edge Evolution programmer, I get 23-24 on the freeways in the valley. Up here, about 19. Not bad, considering small trucks are maybe getting 20mpg. My .02 Good luck with your decision.

48K?...for the new 6.2 liter? They usually start at 60K or what ever high bidder wants to give them. I doubt I'd get much hunting done out of one of those.As for the original question: I've had two trucks that were great for hunting. First one was my old 85 toyota 4x4. I put 150k on that truck with hardly a problem. Second one was a 89 Izusu Trooper 4x4. Cool little rig to hunt from, got great mileage and would go most anywhere. Plus you could sleep in it and stay dry. Also you can buy them cheap. It was pretty gutless power wise but it was a great weekend hunting rig.
Jim, I saw one of those Ford Raptors at the dealer on my lunch break today! Man what a truck till I saw the sticker on the window and almost lost my lunch....$48g's loaded and that's without tax, prep and licensing fees! Yikes!!!

Had a very close friend that owned one. It was definitely a fine vehicle, but just wait until it needs something! Parts took forever to order, and were very, very expensive when found. It didn't nickel and dime hm to death, it twenty and fifty dollared him to death.

You had me worried for awhile.I thought you were going to say a "Mini Cooper"on steroids. Glad you cleared that up.OK one question from me.On the Jeep Cherokee,is it easy to work on,(hood up),and plenty of room ?My Honda Passport can be a bear to work on,without special tools and all.I mean,very little handroom.And some plenty of 4 letter words........Have an oil leak at the valve cover gasket.Been patching it,til I can have it repaired right.Instead of regular bolts,Isuzu (Rodeo) has Allen heads holding the valve cover down.Those Allen heads are a mistake. If I had my choice,I'd replace them.But,this Honda has been a good one,like my ex-Ford E-200 Econoline van.It had a 3 speed.And I put close to 1 mill miles on it.Owned it for over 20 years. The tranny,to the rear end,has never been touched.My workhorse.Just for kicks,how 'bout a Hummer ?

Life is too short to hunt with an ugly dog or gun
Maintain a balance of nature, use a beautiful gun when shooting a beautiful bird
