    i am in the process or buying an offroad toy and have narrowed to this two cars.
    need a light 4x4, no more than 4.0 engine

    here in florida we don't really need the power of a big v8 for offroading. i will basically suing the car for my hunting adventures in the swampy florida. so tires and a locking differential (plenty or aftermarket options) are my main concern.

    the wranglers are out my budget, i need a car that can also drive few times a week, and don't want to make payments, want to stay on the 8-10k range

    i used to play with the grand Cherokees and they are cheap (2-3k for a clean late 90's) but waste a lot of gas.

    so what are your opinions

    xterra or liberty
