Youve got to understand something; the staff at 4-Wheel & Off-Road loves 4x4s. Were not just putting on an act for youwe live this stuff everyday! Sure, we all have our own personal preferences, but not one of us drives a car into work. So when we sit down to deliberate and vote for what we think the 10 best 4x4s of 2001 are, you know we are going to have a hard time.
Man, wed rather show you all the trucks that have made the last 12 issues worth reading again, but we had to narrow it down to the simplest terms and present you with the best of the best. It wasnt easy (by the time you read this well be working on finding fresh meat for 2002). But if you draw your ear real close to these pages you can almost hear these 10 engines roaring, feel all 40 tires clawing, and taste the conquered earth, mud, sand, snow, and rock that these machines were built to tame. So here we present you with the 10 4x4s that left the biggest 44-inch-tire impression on us in 2001. Enjoy.
