So you want to go off-roading and need a good place to start. Perhaps you re unsure about the best sort of vehicle to take off-road, or maybe you re overwhelmed by some of the terms and phrases used so casually in various truck and SUV reviews. You might also be wondering if the SUV already sitting in your driveway is all you really need.
