Any wrangler from 2000 on will do almost any off roading you want except extreme rock crawling.

I've had some bad experiences in the past with towing and tranny problems, so I'm very cautious. I would like to flat tow. Thanks for your help!
If your Xterra has a transfer case that you can shift in neutral I would install a tow plate and use it. I had a 2002 Nissan Frontier 4x4 Automatic. Even though it didn't say in its user guide whether it can be towed all four wheels down. I did quite a bit of search on the web and discovered that others have done it. So, I tried it and towed it for several years. When you are ready to tow, just place the transfer case in Neutral and go.
All the best!

It depends on what you are going to use the four wheel drive for. If you are just gonna drive down some dirt road, most 4x4 will do the job. If your talking about serious 4 wheeling then do the Jeep wrangler.

If you weren't on the opposite end of the world as defined by US RVers, I'd offer to sell you my 93 Geo Tracker. We bought a Jeep Liberty and will be towing that as soon as I get the base plate installed.

We towed the Tracker for several years with our 2006 WGO View on a diesel Sprinter chassis and never had a problem.

Towing 2000 4-runner, standard trans with neutral. must use extra key in ignition in off position so steering does not lock. Around 4200#, makes good 4/4 and nice off to town rig for four people plus luggage space if needed. EZ install base plate and most come towing equipped so bikes go on back.

Your newer Xtrerra must be all automatic with no separate transfer case selector. I actually wanted to get a Honda Ridgeline - ironic that you can tow Honda CRV but not a Ridgeline. Finally got me a Ford Explorer SportTrac. The best vehicle I have had for towing. It is an 8 cylinder, thus gets a terrible gas mileage in town, but great vehicle to tow.
