Since I'm a 4x4 freak and tool freak just as much as I am a gun nut and hunting nut I thought I'd get a topic going about what you all drive and what your prefered vehicle for the outdoors is.
I've had only a few over the years, all 4x4 vehicles. Bought a new 2010 Ford F150 XLT SuperCrew 4x4 pickup truck earlier this past summer for my outdoor and hunting needs. Actually like all my previous vehicles it's my everyday vehicle too. I love it, but it does have way more features and luxuries than I'm used to in a truck. Prior to that I owned a '02 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo, a '99 Dodge Ram 1500, and an old '87 Jeep Wrangler YJ. The old Jeep YJ was geat for most of my outdoor needs except for biggame hunting. That old YJ didn't have nearly the space capacity for bringing home any large mule deer or elk so until I got the Dodge I always had to resort to my dads old F-250 Ford for biggame.
Never owned a Chevy or GMC, but I do tend to like the look of the newer Silverado/Sierra line of pickups. Anyone have any experience with those? So far the Ford has turned out to be very much to my liking. I didn't draw any biggame tags this year, so I'll have to wait until next season to really test it out on biggame hunts. So far it's perform just like a truck for camping, fishing, and waterfowl. It's gotten me to the remote places I need to go so far. Maybe when my son turns 16 I'll let him use the F-150 and I'll get myself either an F-250 Powerstroke Diesel or a Chevy 2500 Duramax Diesel. But who knows, maybe I'll be going through a midlife crisis by then and will have given up hunting and be more into geting a Chevy Camero or a Dodge Challenger.
