Here’s a rugged body-on-frame SUV with a great powertrain (M113 V8 + 722.6 5-speed auto) and hardly any miles for way less than ten grand. What a great value.

Sure, it’ll cost you more to maintain than a used CRV or RAV4, but I think it’s well worth it for the better overall performance and refinement.

And when you start with a nice example like this one and use a good indy mechanic who knows the marque, you might be surprised at how little the difference actually is.
