Chevy Colorado 4WD Z71 Diesel truck and claimed it's the only truck you'll need to own. With it's low level torque and high fuel economy it can cope with most jobs given to full size trucks. But with it's smaller size it's better round town and it certainly is stylish.
This is the truck I'd want to own, but at a cost of about $42K for the Z71 diesel I don't think I'll be driving one off the lot any time soon. Maybe in 5-10 years I can get a used model, but until then I'll have my sights set on a Nissan Frontier.

Having traveled around the US in a budget a couple of times I know what its like to watch your pennies every day. I used to plan my Amtrak and Greyhound trips to be over night to save on accommodation and save time for exploring destination. Also cheap Ramen noodles can be filling and tasty if you add some fresh peppers and mushrooms, which doesn't add much cost.

Outside magazine do a great job explaining 4WD vs AWD in this online article. The terms differential and locker always confused me and now make more sense. Having a AWD Chevy Equinox I found the last paragraph really interesting and a useful trick to know.

Exploring the American Frontier requires good quality gear and what better way to explore than by using US made products. This is a great list of the top US made gear.
While not gear its great to see Wyoming Whiskey Small Batch Bourbon listed as that's my favourite.
