Default WANTED: 4WD TRUCK or SUV

I landed a dream job and now I need to get a vehicle so I won't have to beat up my nice F-150. I'll be driving upwards of 1,000 miles a week and a lot of that will be on dirt roads and ocassionally some 2 tracks.

What I'm looking for is a reliable used 4x4 SUV or truck that will seat 4-5 people. I'm leaning toward a Toyota 4-runner or a Jeep Cherokee but at this point I'm not stuck on any one model. I prefer something economical (4 cylinder, 6, or possibly a small v. I don't care what it looks like, but it needs to run well and have some miles left. Good tires would be a bonus but not essential.

I'm willing to go up to $4000. Send details and pics if you have them to [email protected].

Thanks for the tips. I'll check craigslist out. Autotrader came up with 3 matches within 150 miles of Grand Junction and they were all dealerships...

you should be able to find something in that range, i found my runner on craigslist, had to dive to saltlake to get it but even with the $300 round trip i spent under 3 grand. i have put over 20k mi on it in the last 5 months with only oil changes and i did a tune up and changed the belts. still keeps on a trucking . you might have to look around a bit but they are out there

Quad cab dodge dakota. I've got one, but I don't think I want to sell it. Sits 4 easily, could handle 5. Sits high, plenty of room for bigger tires too without modifying it.
