If you do look at 4x4's may I suggest you look at Musso's they are not well regarded by those that have not experienced them, but in fact they are good motors. A very useful aspect is that the ssangyong owners club on the web is one of the best of its kind with a very comprehensive technical forum with members across the world. There are not many problems that cannot be sorted.
I myself drive a year 2000 Daewoo Musso and tow all over Europe, in May & June I covered 3.5k miles, this involved the Alps. No problem what so ever.
