also i've never cleaned the inside or outside of any car i've ever owned, so it'd probably not stay super pretty.
get a cool old truck or jeep

I want a beater 1st gen Blazer (the one where the whole roof comes off) as a fun/haul crap around/winter vehicle

protip: that thing will be absolute dogshit in winter weather

i like to clean my car, it's probably similar to doing lawn work or something
you get all this stuff out and make a big mess in the driveway and then you clean it all up and put the stuff all away with in the garage and get all hot and gross then chug a drink and are tired but then it looks great and so it feels good

My commute is one mile.  I'm not in my car more than 2 minutes per day. It gets super filthy

Ugh getting in/out of cars is exhausting.  I couldn't handle a 2 minute commute.

Oh, man. The car that SD thinks is a giant boat is called "Armada." It's a whole rough ridin' fleet! Hahahaha.

SdK sis drives a '16 Yukon Denali on 24s. She's a stud boss mom.

SdK may get jealous of her ride from time to time.

I don't trust either of our vehicles to go some places that I want to go.  I "need" something with 4wd and decent clearance, not an AWD crossover.  Also should be new enough and reliable enough to not be concerned about getting stranded in the middle of the desert 300-400 miles away from home.  What should I do?

1) Trade in my car for a 4Runner or something similar.  This is the way I was leaning, but my car is just about perfect 99% of the time.  Reliable, good MPG for commute, AWD for the many snow days and for driving up the canyon to ski. But should be easy to sell for same reasons and because it's a make everyone drives out here.

2) Trade in mrstdaver's minivan for Tahoe or something similar.  4Runner size won't do here, need the extra space for the main family hauler. 

3) Get a cheapish third vehicle.  I don't want to do this. 

Think I answered my own question.  #2 it is.  Does that Armada beast boat come in 4wd?

Apply some cc thread synergy and rent the big vehicle you need on those 1% of times that your car isn't perfect.

I think Range Rover is the way to go.  If you have ever watched their commercials they seem like a very reliable car for off road(vision quest) adventures.  IDK what your price range is but maybe sell whatever you have and get a tiny house and RR and call it good?

Good idea.  Especially here in the interim until I decide for sure.

Sometimes at work I park right behind a coworkers F250 and it looks like a baby truck following the mama truck.  Pretty adorable.

Yes, of course. It's got better off road chops than a stupid canadian Tahoe.

I put some 20 in rims on my wife's Ford and it looks just a Range Rover. BAM! Range Rover for 1/3 the price.
