Those little Suzuki Samurais are pretty bare bones, cheap, have a lot of aftermarket support, and are supposedly pretty good offroad.

Chevy/Geo Tracker was a re-badged Suzuki very similar to the Samurai.

And I don't know about Twizzler's AO, but Samurai's are stupid expensive around here. Nearly unobtainable. Typically guys pull the 50 horsepower gas motor and put in a vintage VW diesel.

I've long thought the Zukes would be a great idea for a minimalistic 4x4, but yeah... lots of others got the same idea, and prices reflect that. Drat!

If I'm gonna make it a project "toy", then I may want to move back in time a little, when compact trucks really were compact. A simple first gen s10, ranger, toyota... whatever. So long as it hasn't ramped up 'collector' value yet, or become a darling of the offroad crowd.
If 2wd, not quite as good as 4x4 in some circumstances, but I know my way around tire chains, and a locking diff can go a long way if you know what you're doing. Also mechanically much simpler.

Old s10 would be a great option. In my area they are stupid cheap unless someone has already turned it into a dragster. But easy to work on and parts everywhere... Plus 350 swap is basically madatory
