    In around three months I’m going to get a new or newer rig. No older than 2014. Currently my 2004 Nissan Titan is on my last nerve. I don’t want to put anymore money into it. I have beaten the piss out of it. This morning too, a bad driver destroyed my driver side mirror assembly. Whhaaat? Mentally handicapped drivers in the metroplex? I know...no way.

    What do you guys prefer? Texas is really different than Oregon but any of you guys go from a 4wd to a 2wd pick up? Hate it/like it? For hunting a bed is nice and as much as I would enjoy a suv or crossover that got 25-30 mpg, do I dare? Any Texas hunters and outdoorsman go from a truck to a smaller suv?

    I could go back to Nissan but I’m giving the Tacoma and Silverado a heavy consideration.

    If you're not dragging much, or hauling too much, I think the xterra is an awesome platform for on/off road.
    Barring that, the current generation jeep Cherokee is worth a look.
    But, I tow and haul and go to nasty places, so I stick with full size trucks with 4x4 .

    I should have asked how accessible hunting areas or more remote camping areas will be. I’m not gonna rock crawl lol, but I only needed 4wd and higher clearance for winter time.

    I’m also curious about a Jeep Cherokee. Would love to find a diesel one.

    I don't think Jeep makes diesel cherokees anymore... I'm a big Toyota fan, if money isn't a huge object just get a Tundra with 4wd.

    I can't answer your hunting and camping areas questions.
    But, I'm afraid you're about to be disappointed.
    Texas is pretty much private property once you leave the pavement.

    Highjacking your thread to ask which pickup manufacturer I'm supposed to choose to be a real Texan.

    Yep. Most camping will be corps of engineer land or state parks. A few private camp grounds scattered around. Generally paved roads and improved sites.

    The places near me that used to be unimproved and might need 4wd if it had rained recently are no longer accessible. They got pipe rails put up blocking access about 10 years ago. Same time the Corps renovated most of the local camp grounds.

    Tundra, cuz they're made in San Antonio.
    That's the immigrant way.

    A real Texan drives a Ram and doesn't ask, explain or apologize. Because we can.
