I am looking for a third vehicle (already have 2 family cars). I want something that will be my biking/hiking/skiing/exploring car. Here are the criteria:
- $8k total budget. Im thinking $5k for the car and $3k for upgrades
- I prefer a wagon but would entertain a truck
- all wheel/4 wheel drive
- Needs to be able to drive long distances reliably.
- Needs to be able to haul at least 2-3 bikes, 2 kayaks, skis, tents and backpacking gear, 2 people and 2 dogs comfortably. This can involve racks on the roof or a hitch rack which will be part of the build budget.
What would you build? You can spend less on the vehicle and more on the build (engine swap or something) or the other way.
