Hiking vehicles

Post by rally_toad » Mar 06 2008 7:26 pm

What kind of vehicles do you guys all drive when your going hiking? Im thinking about investing in a 4wd high clearance Jeep or something of the sort so I could get to some places where I definitely couldnt get to with what Im driving now (73 mustang):) I saw a Jeep Grand Cherokee today for $2600 and I was thinking about checking it out. What "hiking vehicle" is easiest to drive and which gets the best gas mileage (even though I know most wouldnt be too fuel efficient.)

So, where might this still fresh bounty of meat be, again?

@Jim_H between Haxtun and Fleming Colorado. The state trooper who took my statement said I was the third deer collision on his shift that night and was going to verify the animal was off the road so it’s probably in his freezer. :)

That State Troopers family must get awfully tired of Deer steak for dinner. Just sayin...

@chumley
Easier after a couple weeks.I had to go visit to get my garage door opener. With the plastic bumper cover it doesn’t look too bad, but everything behind it is smashed pretty good ie radiator frame etc.

My Jeep is going into shop next week for lift, suspension mods and 37 inch Cooper STT pro tires ( 10 ply). I've got some really bad mining roads in my near future and I plan to drive the majority before I put on the pack.
