In search of new vehicle

I currently have a 6" lift on my dodge with 35" tires. I love this set-up, but I'm at a point where I need to put $20,000 into it to keep it right (paint, drive train upgrades, etc). I'm fine with that but I do all that and I still have 161,000 miles on my engine and other parts.

I don't like that. I live a ways away from things and if something happens to me or my family, I want to be able to get to where I need to go, rain, snow, or shine.

I want a new vehicle, but don't want to spend $100,000 to have what I want...what I need. There must be something out there other than buying a new truck for $40k and sticking $20k+ into it.

I was looking into the H1s but being as only 12,000 were ever made they can be expensive and I don't know how well I'd be able to find parts. They seem right, as the only thing I would need to do is get the tires I prefer on them.

Any suggestions?

I must also note that I enjoy having my 4 doors and the power the modified hemi has. I hunt so a truck is ideal but I could get a small trailer or a rack that goes into the receiver hitch.
