Dual case it with a Marlin crawler. Swap out the push-pull steering for a hi-steer crossover from a 90 something. Let it take you over anything out there and be confident in the reliability that it will get you back home.

You'll spend a lot of time passing broken jeeps on the trail, and you can say "We understand the Jeep thing, that's why we build Toyotas."
because no one's been hunting '85s since.... '86.

might as well throw in a Cummings R2.8 as well, bob the bed, and maybe swap in Currie 44/60 with portals front and rear, so you don't break the birfields.
Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical and radical minority, rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
