Alright folks, we are back with another Friday Fun Challenge. This week, we are heading to Moab, Utah (virtually) to tackle the 4-wheeling trails. But we aren’t heading there in shiny new, fully capable off-roaders. No, we need to make this interesting.
Your mission is to find a used vehicle currently for sale with an asking price no greater than $2,000 USD ($3,000 CAD or £1,500). It can be whatever you want, but it has to be for sale now and the listed price can’t be any higher than the amount of $2,000 USD.
So what’s it going to be? A big V8 brute? An off-road specialist? Something completely out of left field? Have at it and let us know!
I am going to go with an agile, purpose built off-roader that offers a bit more comfort than a Jeep Wrangler. My pick is this diesel, right-hand drive JDM 1991 Mitsubishi Pajero. It has the less desirable automatic transmission, but does have ‘Super Select 4WD’. Plus, there are already hitches mounted front and rear to help drag the Mitsubishi out of the inevitable messes I’ll get myself stuck in.
Or, if I want to change the difficulty level to expert, maybe I’ll grab this 2001 Pontiac Aztek. It is all-wheel drive and all of those exterior stick-on pieces have to make it more capable, right?
