Is this a daily driver with some bug-out capability OR a BOV with some daily driver capability?
I am not a fan of SUVs as BOVs as a pickup is more versatile especially carrying non-enclosed cargo like fuel, firewood, oversized or odiferous cargo, etc.
I had a 2002 Dakota pickup (4 doors and fiberglass bed topper) that I loved: it was largely unsupported in the aftermarket industry however.
One of the things to consider in any vehicle is fuel range when loaded: a large fuel tank and/or the ability to carry extra fuel is vital.
Consider ALL the things that you would like this vehicle to do and then buy a newer Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and kit it out with offroad accessories.
