I'm going to have to say maybe the Rebel now.

Reason be is just that the sandking is just way to common.

The XL being RWD must be a bug or a misunderstanding. They have modeled the drivetrain as a 4x4 with a differential and driveshaft for the front axle. Hope they get around to fixing that once the more pressing matters are handled :)

Even though we can only have a maximum of 10 vehicles, I'm planning on keeping both a rusty Rebel and a Sandking XL. If I had to pick only one, it's a close call, but I'd say Rebel. Less common, there's fewer annoying kids have them, there's no dudebro vibe about it, and I've lusted after a Toyota Xtra Cab 4x4 since BTTF. I even used to have an '81 2WD 'yota that had the round-headlight front end that the Rebel resembles.
 
That being said, it only seats 2 (as does the Sandking SWB), and sometimes I feel like being a douche. So, a P.M. yellow Sandking XL fits that bill. If I get the itch for a BF Injection again, I might let one go.

The Sandking is RWD? Since when?
 
Have you tipped it upside down and seen which wheels move? Because I would assume it's 4WD....


 
Me and my crew go off-roading all the time and all the Sandking drivers agree that it's only RWD. The non-Sandkings in our group drive Merryweather Mesas and Karin Rebels.

I can also confirm that the Sandking XL is RWD only. Without flipping it over, you can test for yourself by simply nosing up to a solid wall and giving it gas. A four-wheel drive like the Rebel or all-wheel drive like the Elegy spins only the rear wheels when doing a brakestand, but will spin all four wheels when against a wall. I even tried it with the Sandking's front tires on grass & the rears on pavement.

Rebel. Saw it, wanted it, modded it, looks unique, great offroad, fast.

What else could I want?

I have had both trucks and for a fact know the rebel is 4wd and the sandking is not!  I had a fully modded sandking and not only was it slow but couldn't climb mountains as good as the rebel, the bodhi, or the bf injection.

I actually acquired 3 pickup trucks all in the same night, modding each one as soon as I got it, only to completely replace it with the next, better (in my mind) pickup I found. Started when I found a Saddler. I simply wanted a pickup truck. So I maxed out everything on it and stored it away. Literally 15 minutes later, I see a Sandking xL and decided "That's way better than that Saddler", so I get rid of the Saddler, mod the Sandking, and stick it in the back of my garage for storage purposes. Wasn't planning on using it often. 30 minutes later I see the rusty Rebel. I had already spent lots of money modding, but I decided I'd at least take it into Los Santos Customs to see what kind of custom mods it could get. I was so pleased with my choices that I modded that thing up, got rid of the Sandking, and haven't looked back. Now my Rebel is my vehicle of choice for cruising or if it's time to cross mountains.

Rebel all day long, first step- get 100% armour, second step- get a bounty and go up Mount Chilliad and watch just about everyone elses cars die trying to get you, step three- get out with sniper rifle and have fun till the hate mail rolls in.= win and lots of fun.

I just love my Sandking. You can NEVER play monstertruck with the Rebel...

 

It's a very special feeling of beeing unstoppable with the Sandking, mash right thru roadblocks, over convertibles.. Ahh.. Sandking!

I bet my Rebel could lift more than your rebel.
Also, I joined your Panda Crew drunk sometime last week because of the name, but what, exactly, do you guys do? Call me ignorant, but I told myself I wasn't going to join a crew until I saw your logo. Once I get the dunce-cap off for accidentally ramming 20 people's personal vehicles with my tank (they all look alike to me), I'll get a mic and see what it's like being in a session where not everyone shoots me in the face while I'm admiring the flowers.

Where does one find a rusty rebel?  I found a clean one, but I want the rusty one.

I voted Karin because they're my favorite makers.  From the Rebel, to the Futo, to the Sultan.  Karin is KING.

You get lucky. I got mine right in front of the LSC near Blaine County.

I go through vehicles fast, but the bubblegum pink Rebel to the left has a permanent spot in my garage. ^w^

Can I have a permanent spot in your heart? I can run really fast and my credit is fantastic.

I keep a Sandking SWB, Clean Rebel, and Baja's Modded Rusty Rebel. The clean is by far best off road followed closely by rusty rebel. Sandking is not great on slopes. However it's fun for running over traffic!! LoL

They all have redeeming qualities.

I have both a Sandking XL and a clean Rebel.  I'm going to say the Sandking only due to the fact that 4 people can get in it.

karin is better for offroad (mesa still number 1), but if you want some monster truck action go for the sandking.
