I've used, Jeep cj7, 4x4 pickups, modified golf carts, 4 wheelers, 3 wheelers, and side x sides. I've got an old Suziki Samurai now and it beats them all.

$4000 will buy a nice one and they are dang near bullet proof. Also believe it or not, if you need a part they are cheap, readily available and the thing is as easy to work on as a lawn mower.

I leave mine at my cabin, but I drive it town often.

Nice Samurai Weagle. They are cool little vehicles.

As someone who has owned a jeep wrangler for 8 years and also driven around electric golf carts, four wheelers, and UTV's on the same rutted up muddy roads at our hunt camp, I can tell you the following:

-For up front cost and practicality, a jeep is a great buy
-For comfort, convenience, and ease of maintenance a UTV is worth the cash

I'm currently saving to buy a new truck, sell my jeep, and buy a UTV. When it's really muddy out and the roads are too slick to slow down appropriately when passing over/around deep ruts, the jeep will beat you half to death. The UTV goes around it with no problem. The UTV will also fit on a single bushhog pass wide trail without issue, and when you do have to run over something rough the independent front and rear suspension is a major spine savor.

I have several tracts of land spread out up to 10 miles apart. I use my daily driver 4x4 f150 to get to properties and electric cart to cruise around. Need the 4x4 truck on the dirt roads after heavy rains.
Golf carts need lift kits, at tires and high amp controllers to do the job.

Nice looking carbine in the front seat. I assume it's a Ruger .44 Auto? Don't see many of those anymore.
I've got one with a Aimpoint SC1000 in .44 Mag. And a matching Ruger .22 also.
That little .44 makes a good rifle for a lot of the thick Georgia woods. Nice and light.
