    Sometimes "underpowered" is a good thing---keeps you from tearing stuff up.

    I like power don't get me wrong, but the older I get the more I prefer rugged and dependable vs overpowered and unreliable.
    I have also learned that what many call '"underpowered" is really just fine. Just look at trucks for example; what most considered quite powerful 5yrs ago is now laughed off as weak---even though the truck is practically the same!

    I like the Cajun approach to these things, especially boats. Hang a 150 tiller on a 1844, slap some “Skint Back” stickers on the side, and go have fun.

    Yup, had a 86 jeep Cherokee with 4 cylinder manual tranny. Best snow bucking vehicle I have ever owned. Power to wheel was perfect ,you didn't spin out but had the power to push through.

    Never tore up anything and it got used hard.

    Smaller and underpowered is also handy sometimes. Easier to get it unstuck. (Or roll it back over.....)

    I pulled a brand new one of these out of a rice field once. Brand new, first time off a levee and snapped a U joint. The guy was hot. I would of liked to hear his conversation with the dealership.

    Mahindra makes a CJ clone, the Roxor. It's got like a 60hp diesel in it.
