Well, I have to agree that alot of the 4X4's today are pretty wimpy. I too had a International Scout with an old four cylinder that looked more like a tractor motor. It was tough as nails, no highway car, but it wasn't meant to be. I wish I had never let that Scout get away, it was fun to drive and in the summer we kept the top off. I have to say the Jeeps are still pretty tough. I had a 95 Wrangler and it was fun to drive and can still go about anywhere with plenty of good ground clearance. I am now on my third Isuzu Trooper. Its a 1991 4X4 that was built when the Troopers were still practical, great ground clearnace and pretty tough. It has a Chevy V6 in it. But the new ones are a joke, way too expensive and built for the fancy Yupe crowd that want to drive something that says 4X4, of course they never use it. Most of the new 4X4's are just for show, very rarely do most of these vehicles ever get put in four wheel drive mode. Oh well, I guess they are building what the people want but give me an older Trooper, a good ole Jeep, or man, one more old Scout in my life!
