Low-buck 4x4 truck: What's your best wrecked to rugged transformation?

One truck was wrecked, the other one only sent power to its rear axle.

We leafed through the archives to June 1966 to see how this budget-conscious build unfolded.

The Top 5: If you're building a 4x4, then these should be the first items on your list

I was listening to my buddies Verne Simons and Trent McGee on a podcast the other day, and one of the hosts asked them, “What’s the best off-road upgrade you’ve made to a 4x4?” I won’t divulge their answers because, in my opinionated opinion, only one of them answered correctly.

Two engines, four-wheel drive: Citroen's 4x4 is unique … just check the trunk

My plan for the classic Dodge Power Wagon I don't own

My mind often springs to life and engages full throttle in the middle of the night when it should be sleeping. When this happens, my brain is like a 4x4 high-centered on a rock, engine revving, all four tires spinning, but no movement. Thank goodness for my pal the iPad. I simply fire up the rectangular electronic wonder and look at 4x4 stuff on the interwebs until sleep once again comes to call.
