About the same size as my Suzuki Samurai, which was street legal, but could only make 65 MPH if it had a tailwind, LOL. 5 speed manual. Old fashioned transfer case shifter. Manual locking hubs. Fold down windshield. Easily removable doors. Genuine roll bar. Extreme front and rear angles of attack. 100% old school off road vehicle.Mahindra makes a Jeep knock off that is now sold in the US. It’s tough and small, and has a gas and diesel option. It dosent have all the emissions stuff on it nor turn signals so is sold as an off road vehicle only here. The reason I bring it up is it is built way tougher than any of the quads out there. It is very similar to the old willys Jeep. I think it starts around 15k though vs around 8 for a quad. It’s a pretty cool 4 wheel drive bug out vehicle though
When I was hunting in Georgia it was great, there was nowhere it wouldn't go, and I mean NOWHERE. And when the kids were little they had a blast riding in the back seat with the top down. I didn't even have real mudgrips on it, just some aggressive all weather tires.
Cross wet creek bed with steep banks? Piece of cake, LOL. It was part mountain goat.
Rollover? You would think it would prone to rollover, but it actually had a low center of gravity. I got sideswiped one time which blew out a tire and threw it sideways. It skidded all the way across the street sideways on dry asphalt.
When I started hunting mostly in Mississippi I really couldn't use it without towing it over there. I did try driving it the 800 mile round trip ONE TIME. Not it's forte, LOL.
