    Default Vehicle choice

    I have been debating the choice of a new vehicle for Expo camping. It needs to have at least 1 to 6 cylinders and get between 2 mpg and 20 mpg and be able to carry 12 people and 1 small dog. I would like for it to have at least 3 tires and an Arb to one of them for better traction. My future goals would be to add a lift between 2 to 11 inches depending if I put on 27 to 47 inch tires. I am also trying to figure what my communication devices will be and so far I have cb,telephone, walkie talkie, ham and can on a string but that has a limited range. My budget is endless as long as my wife will give me the money and I clean up the yard and not leave the vehicle on jack stands for 2 years.

    LOL!!

    i clicked on your thread with an eye roll, thinking here we go again! How can anybody tell you what vehicle is good for you. we can all read the pros and cons of each, and there is more than enough info on this forum, let alone the rest of WWW.

    too funny, thanks for the chuckle!

    Before you get too deep into this, you may want to define your tire tread choice, mud or all terrain.

    I like Castor oil and for filters I change mine every 500 miles so I just use cheap AFE filters.
