get an old wagoneer or something. roomy, 4wd. yadda yadda. hey you can buy ours if you want! right off the bat youll be putting an alternator in it. then youll need to fix the radiator. then youll need to get it running smoothly.then ull need to get the tranny engaging quicker. and THEN!! then my friend you will have an official winter beater.
