Best looking truck Chevy ever made. In my opinion.
I havent read all the posts on this but have concidered it my self.
My quick answer, if more than 2 or 3 people were moving out with me would be a older Jeep Cherokee.
4x4 with a 3 to 5 inch lift. Tons of options out there for that.
Aftermarket support is amazing. Heck my last one had a 350/TH350 and nothing but an HEI for electronics. Advance Adapters makes the mounts. Fits in nice.
33" Super Swampers, welded rear, open front, 231 t-case.
I would pick the Cher over a TJ or YJ because of the extended wheelbase and still narrow enough to run through the woods when needed.
Better security with 5 locking doors.
Full size rigs need more room to move around and are harder to hide.
MOGs, Hummers and the like are nice. But heavy. Land Rovers are good but if you are running from something and need a part, good luck finding a Rover part.
S Series Blazers and Jimmys are a good starting point as well but the IFS has to go.
