What is a good, basic off-road vehicle?
My wife and I recently moved to a town in western Arkansas. There's a lot of fun stuff to do and places to go that are down rough, gravel forest service roads. We have a small car for highway travel and a 3/4 ton pickup for trailer-hauling, but we have to take it easy with them on the gravel.
We would like to buy a little SUV that we don't have to worry about when driving fast on a rough road. It also needs to handle a little mud and some minor rock crawling. So....
What is a good vehicle that is easy to work on, can usually be bought for $1000-$1500, and has stood the test of time to prove it a good off-road vehicle.
Any help or guidelines of what to look for will be appreciated.
