Potentialy the most sought after 4x4 ever

I know it is always A matter of prefrence.
But I would like to know what the most sought after 4x4 is.
I have three broncos 86,92,73 So I would obviously say Ford bronco.
However I never owned anything other than FORD.
And would appreciate some real comparisons for my next purchase.

If you have the cash you can't go wrong with a Unimog. I love my 94 Bronco.

The old Landcruisers and Zooks would have to be pretty well sought after too.
A series 1 SWB Range Rover, and Series 2 Land Rovers. Would have to be my pick though.

If it were me and looking for an older one I would go for a IH Scout or Land Rover series 2 or 3. I know they both have issues with rust, but I still like both and they have a very loyal following

From my perspective, Early Broncos seem to currently have the most interest.

Well for trucks I would think the 73-79 F series. SUV type vehicles I would suggest the early Land Cruiser's. But that is in the US. Both IMO are indestructable.

Drew...you live in Southern Iowa. More important, you live South of Hwy 34 (The Redneck line South of it is redneck, north of it is kind of alright, and North of I80 sucks). Most importantly...you live in the little tail that sticks off of Iowa, you catch alot of those Missouri people even more then here in Centerville. Just giving you trouble - I wish I hadt hat much stuff in front of my dorm .

Most sought after...Definately the EB.
