It isn't classified as AWD but for cheap, fun, and off road capable, an old geo tracker is pretty good. Had one when i was a kid and the insurance wasn't too high on it

An older, Pre-Tacoma, Toyota pickup would fill the bill. Not an AWD, but available as a 4WD. Insurance should not be high on an older vehicle that is not a speed racer.

You didn't say what "cheap" means but I would suggest looking for 94 or newer Toyota FZJ80 Land Cruiser. All wheel drive and one of the most durable rigs on, and off, the road. Plenty capable stock and there are tons of aftermarket parts should you want to upgrade.

I could be wrong but does it really make much of a difference for insurance, (4x4 vs. all wheel drive)? My first was a 90 Bronco that I still have and am still modifying to be a better wheeler. My dad picked it up for $50 but they are normally a little more than that Just keep checking craigslist and you are bound to find something.

I believe insurance is determined more by engine size than how many wheels are powered. I paid more for a 6 cylinder 2wd than i did for a 4 cylinder 4x4

In ky, the insurance lady told me the motor didn't matter? However it was a v-8 s-10. I pay pretty good change on my 94 Toyota pickup.

I would just go with an ATV in that case.

Toyota is your best bet for cheap 4x4. That being said this is my project. :-)
