    I just checked out other offroad rigs. Which one is the offroad king in your opinion???

    Some good offroaders are:

    1. Landcruiser 80
    2. Mercedes G
    3. Hummer
    4. Mitsubishi Pajero
    5. Suzuki Samurai
    6. Nissan Patrol
    7. some US-Models I don't know ??

    Especially if you compare them with their ability to climb hills or cross rivers. What about the ground clearance and the solid axles.

    The Mercedes G has two solid axles and all lockers too. I don't know the ground clearance but he is less capable in water.

    What about the other cars??? Patrol, Pajero, Hummer, etc.

    Maybe someone has used them before :cheers:

    ??? What do you think the answer is going to be on a Cruiser board? ???

    That said, I think that the Hummer H2 is the best, with the Honda CR-V coming in a close second. Cruisers suck! I am only holding on to the Cruiser until I can afford a truck that has IFS. IFS RULES!!!

    you forgot the Defender, which I think is good looking, when it's not in the dealership, and when you're done paying off the high sticker for Brit inefficiencies...

    "Ronin"

    The Samurai Rolloverâ„¢ , of course !

    • Light and nimble .
    • You can just pick it up and toss it in a your backback if you get tired of wheeling .
    • Throw on some floater tires , and you've got a great snow rig .
    • High-speed merging enhanced thru single or double rollovers ; depending on which lane is your objective .
    • Modest cabin space means hours of sweet solitude .
    • Smashing a few pigggy banks means you can own two !
    • No more need for remote mirrors/windows ; reaching over will work !
    • Replacement parts ? Any mechanno set will suffice !
    • Flex? Naw , just drive 'between' the rocks !
    • Get the cool nic name 'Ronin' aka rogue samurai ... cause you're always getting left behind .

    [glow=red,9,900]! RONIN ![/glow]

    H1 = obviously very capable, it is just too wide for a lot of trails and mucho $$$$$$
    H2 = wannabe, screams "I am a soccer mom w/ p*nis envy"
    Range Rover = IFS, but still a capable SUV but plagued with reliability probs
    Discovery = plagued with reliability probs
    Jeep Rubicon = looks like it comes stock with a lot of goodies, but it is a Jeep.
    Mercedes G = 3 locking diffs like (some of) our 80s, impressive history and tech specs. This one's a near winner in my book
    Montero = I've seen a few of these offroad and they are decent + I dig the new look
    LC80 = best combination of size, luxury, and offroad worthiness IMHO

    The 4X4 peaked with the AMC Eagle. Everything since has been a lesser vehicle.

    hmm, good call! :cheers:
    I actually saw a real one of those once..they are pretty bad ass. Looks more like something that you would take across siberia than to the mall. ;)

    There is a Unimog in town. The SOB gets more attention than me and my snorkle.

    How can you forget the International Scout?

    That was one of the first 4x4 that caught my eye. Glad my dad never bought one at the time.
