I must be missing something... coulda swore we already answered that? But hey, I AM old!
What is the best hunting vehicle for hot and cold weather in the mountains and deserts that is still okay to drive around town and on the freeway.
Now there ya go... Braz comes through again! Frankp.s. I think Braz is selling it for a TOYOTA Tundra?

My condolences; always hate seeing folks lose their $$ like that. Oh wait, my truck has a Dodge emblem on it. Gotta remember to remove that in the morning. That's the ticket!
I have refused to buy any foriegn made vehicles

I agree with the big tires on the street. Honestly the best set up for both on and off road is a nearly stock samurai. I've had the best luck with mine for 2 years of DD and beating the heck out of it off road. The key is to keep them low to the ground. I run mine on 29" tall tires, 2" missing link shackles in the front (for tire clearence), stock hieght in the back, no sway bars, 6.5:1 Transfer case gears and a mini spool* in the rear diff. I drove it 65 miles a day back and forth over HWY 17 in the santa cruz mnt. (if anyone is familier with that road) and wheeled the heck out of it following all the big jeeps anywhere they went and even around them a few times. Wheeled the rubicon no problem. Space is an issue but you just have to pack creatively pack. My Tin Top surprised me how much I could fit in it. (large ice chest, tent, campchair, sleeping bag / pad, large fold up dog cage, portable webber grill, dirtbike equipment bag w/ boots helmet etc., + typicall camping equipment, food and my dog (no passengers though).*Mini spool on the street will cause your tires to chirp a lot on turns, but never hand an issue in handling.
If I'm not mistaken here, isn't Suzuki foreign made? Also, those vehicles don't look to safe to be driving down the streets or freeways. Those huge tires are a rolling nightmare to stop on the streets quickly even with his "custom" brakes. I didn't see anything about sway bars on the vehicle either. If you've ever driven a vehicle on the street with it's sway bars removed or disconnected, you'll know what I mean when I say OMG! I wouldn't waste your money on those.

You obviously have never ran much in the snow. I'm sure a spool is fine in most terrain, just keep it in mind if you ever need to run in the snow (on road) that a spool will cause big time handling problems, esp in a short wheelbase vehicle. It will want to swap ends in every turn. Just for future reference... ;)I can't see how a guy could enjoy those things much, a crew cab long box pickup is to small for me. Of course I tend to pack around enough tools, fuel, parts etc to rebuild the space shuttle. By the time a guy gets a couple of rifles, and a lunch your sammi is full. Heaven forbid you want to bring a friend and his guns.

Thats my hunting rig believe it or not. People sure look surprised when you pull up in the middle of the woods in a corolla but the look on there faces when it has a deer in the back is priceless!!!
I'm sure it will hold a $1 but I don't know about a buck!

I tried to get one of those unstuck last year down in Ocotillo Wells Recreational area. Almost ruined the 10,000lb winch on my Jeep. Guy had it lifted just like the one in the photo but once his axles were laying on top of the sand and dirt-he was done! Too much weight for an offroad vehicle. He must've thought he was driving the real Humm Vee!
Perhaps this is a better choice? Certainly is more masculine than a Sammy.Subtle eh?
