Sorry but I disagree with Nissan's reliability being better. In the
past four Jeeps I have owned, I have had one minor leaky radiator and
one cracked exhaust manifold. If you add up all the mileage, it comes
to just under 400K miles with 108,000 miles on my current highly abused Wrangler alone. I don't own a Nissan but hunted with five guys that
did. One by one, they all switched over to other brands after multiple suspension problems like things bending. I'm not exaggerating one bit
there to make my point, that's an honest-to-God point where none of
those friends would say good things about Nissan reliability.
The Nissan would be fine in the dirt road situation being asked about. I
was responding to the comment that the Nissan was rated highly by CU in response to someone else who was complaining about their Nissan's high break-down rate... which co-incides with my experience with five of
them. And CU seems to be more concerned with a vehicle's safety and
smooth ride than the qualities I look for in an offroad-worthy 4x4.

I'm thinking of moving from a light pickup to the SUV, but I car camp
often for the outdoor "Sports" I do and I really don't think the "Utility Vehicle" will work without modifications.
I'm 5'7", wife is 5'2". With the seats down, diagonally *may*
work. Anyone comfortably camp in a Pathfinder/4Runner?
Seat bottom removal? 8" air mattress? Platform?
Thanks for any ideas.
