Despite how capable trucks and truck based SUV's are offroad, you can always tell it has a solid rear axle by how much it jitters offroad. Its especially evident with washboard surfaces. My 93 dakota rides fairly nice the front is soft and squishy (a little too soft after 325K on the torsion bars if you ask me), even though the rear suspension is still fairly soft its a bit harsh when it finds washboards. Other than airing down, there isnt much you can realistically do to help with washboard roads with a solid axle.Sure more speed can help but its not always possible. Ive driven enough subarus and other cars with independent suspension at all four corners to know how much more stable and planted they are with washboards.Those are cars for the most part. They are unibody and they typically dont have low range. I'm just wondering if there is a vehicle that is a proper 4x4 vehicle stateside that has IFS/IRS and a true honest to god 2 speed transfer case and preferably a frame. Ive driven a fiat cherokee and it was much stiffer riding than I would like for offroad use, and its "transfer case" was just a CVT with some lower preset gears, nothing mechanically splitting engine torque to all 4 wheels...
