    I am a big fan of quick 1-2 day trips with the kids.

    Seems like a good compromise. I am certainly not a fan of the mass expansion of wilderness areas in recent decades.

    I have the same anecdotes. When in the backcountry and remote areas, I don't see any MTB riders.

    But on trails within 10 miles of an urban area, I cannot count all the MTB riders. They are...

    Certainly true if you are focused on long distance back country travel, nor surprising given the limited range of a person pedaling versus any motorized vehicle.

    But in terms of absolute size and...

    Another big xr400 fan here too.

    Everything about the xr400 works for me. Simple, reliable, tough, lots of torque, etc.... I was sorry to see Honda kill the XR in 2004, but I do appreciate that it...

    Yep, the big negatives with BB guns are ricochets and their inaccuracy. Since they are primarily plinkers, I can live with their inaccuracy, but the ricochet problem led me to toss them after my...

    Certainly true based on my experience with other vehicles. Until the technology improves, coil spring please.

    I'm contemplating the purchase of a 4runner TE and would do a similar sort of build.

    I'm especially curious about ride height since I need to park in an underground garage.

    Probably the new Forester. Shorter wheelbase, better departure angles, x-mode for better offroad control, reasonable cargo volume.

    All that said, any new Subaru would be good as an overland...

    Lots of owners have had oil consumption issues on the Subaru Outback forum.

    But there was a TSB on this and Subaru did make a change to the rings it uses in new motors on 8 May 2013. Build dates...

    Needs versus wants in an overland vehicle is a highly subjective issue.

    In the needs category, my list is short and includes:

    Good ground clearance (8" at least, the more the better)
    Lots of...

    Best decision we ever made was a 4x4 E350 van. Comfortable seating for all and loads of room. Tried other options and nothing even comes...

    Same here. Vans are great for family travel. Much more comfort than a pickup or SUV. My wife really appreciates a comfy captains chair, the fridge and the porta potti.

    Your interpretation of the term "gone broke" is quite a bit different than mine.

    When exactly did Ford go broke and based on what definition of the term?

    The new Cherokee looks like a great small expo vehicle.

    A problem with the OB is that there are very few off road oriented mods available. My guess is that upgrading the capability of the OB to...

    The CV has been a huge success for Subaru. So much so that it is becoming the standard tranny on most of their models.

    Yep, best to not think about MPG on the V10s. Most owners seem to get 10-12 in mixed driving unloaded and 8-10 if towing.

    FWIW, my 6.0 has been by far the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned....
