97-06 TJ (there was no 96 jeep) with the straight 6. One of the most dependable motors ever built in a vehicle new enough that you can find one in decent shape but old enough to be a good price. Lots of parts for it to do whatever you want. I love my 07 4 door jk, but my 97 was the toughest jeep I had (also had an 2000 and 02)

Damn, I forgot about that. I actually almost bought one used in '98 and had that whole thing explained to me at the dealer.

Many military vehicles would take too many resources to make road ready in the U.S.

Many of the suggestions above are great. A well built respected 4x4 that folks near you can maintain might be better then spending money on a Thing (are they still in production?). I have driven some good American trucks and some Rovers and Toyotas that I have enjoyed... sort depends on your price range and intended use.

Currently I am drooling over the Land Rover Defender 120s. A great durable, flexable vehicle, but one that I do not have the cash to buy or maintain.

I have a 98 Cherokee with the straight 6. The thing is a beast. I had to replace the suspension on it but everything else is running strong. It was a USDA farm inspection vehicle before I got it so it was probably drove hard an put away wet being a .gov vehicle.

I'm driving it 2k miles round trip next week without a question towards it (other than new tires but that is the tires fault, not the jeep's)!

yeah, i don't reallly know much about cars, i just thought the Thing looked cool and was giving out ideas of what i liked. (i actually dont think they are still making them.) i like the land rovers too for sure, but they are out of my price range (my range is gonna be pretty low). i'm thinking some sort of jeep seems to bee my best option, but i'm open to other suggestions.
