I do a lot of off-roading but I used to just own one of the above vehicles, but I really like the looks of all 5 of these off-roader jeep and I want keep 3 off-roader jeeps in my garage that cover me in term's of speed (for races), free-roam cruising, handling, other unique performances (like insurgent tank mode) etc. While I'm very good with figuring out performance of sports, super, bikes & sports classic cars. I am pretty bad with jeeps, sedans, coupes or compacts. I really don't want to put any of the above choices in my garage based on aesthetic alone. So I'm asking the forum for help. If I wanted to keep 3 out of these 5 vehicles in my garage which are the best 3 options. Also, if i have missed out on any really awesome off-roader jeeps in the above list please include them and let me know why that vehicle is better pick than some of the above 5 options, thanks.

 

The above list is:

 

1. Vapid Guardian

2. Insurgent

3. Dubsta 6x6

4. Sand King XL

5. Mercenary's Mesa

Sandking for off roading

Insurgent for armor and mass

Guardian for truck bed shenanigans

I would say that the insurgent is the superior choice for races, freemode and light offroading. For rough offroading I would pick the dubsta 6x6.

Sandking is a must have for good old fashioned off roading. I also use the merryweather Mesa (put middle suspension to avoid tipping over but still leaving ground clearance) and I also love my Rebel.

Apart from the Insurgent (I already own) I'm not sure if I should get the dubsta 6x6 or guardian. I only have one slot that I want to use I've read post after post and I still can't decide

I have been reading in other forums that the VG makes the Dubsta 6x6 obsolete. Is that true? My first choice was VG, Insurgent and Dubsta, but if both VG & Dubsta do the same thing and VG does it better, I'd rather pick-up the Merc. Mesa as I feel it looks a lot cooler.

For off-road races?
Sanchez or Bifta, I personally like the Injectiin because its a bettle.
Your options for off-road races will be outran by these I stated above anyways...

The Guardian is unable to remove the fuel tanks and as such has horrible ground clearance for a truck it's size and it will get stuck on things the 6x6 won't.

Sandking is best offroad. But the insurgent isn't far away and 5000 times better in every other way. The others are pointless as of now.

Correction: the Marshall is best for off-road.

Keep the 6x6 the insurgent and the sandking

Try to get the sandking with no sidesteps for more clearance

1. Vapid Guardian: handles well and everything, problem is ground clearance which I value highly when offroading.
2. Insurgent: decent I guess
3. Dubsta 6x6: my favorite, enough ground clearance and has way more power than the sandking, wish it had some more traction to keep up with that power though
4. Sand King XL: pretty good for climbing over stuff, probably the best, but not enough power
5. Mercenary's Mesa: this vehicle only good for looks IMO, bad performance. it's AWD but only 10% goes to front, and I also feel like front axles deform easy,

Got rid of my dubsta 6x6 because of the new heist cars

If i ever woud feel the need to go offroad on the relaxed way i have my bodhi...if it needs to be fast my 4wd infernus will do good

If i need to be even faster then that i take my bati 801(noboddy in any car ever killed me when im offroading with that one trough the mountains......exept for the few times i actualy fell off)

Insurgent RWD sucks for climbing, Guardian has proven more capable

I was including rocky terrain. Guardian has no clearance.

believe me a do ALOT of offroading, and have all of the vehicles but the guardian

 

the sandking will outclimb everything, just dont put any of the ascthetic upgrades that add stuff to the sides or bottom, and obviously dont lower the suspension

 

the dubsta climbs decent, but not like the sandking, but its decent at ramming other cars,

 

insurgent is my favorite overall vehicle, climbing its not very good at all, but for ramming other vehicles its best in the game, about the only thing it wont knock out of the way is semi cabs, not to mention it takes a ton of explosives to destroy it, and gives the person who pulls it off a 15000 insurance bill

 

the mesa might look cool, but its a total piece of crap, about all its good for is spinning out and rolling over

I have a Guardian, Sandking and an Insurgent. Love them all. They have their advantages and disadvantages. Sandking is the best off-roader.

The Sandking will go everywhere the Dubsta 6x6 will go, and more. It'll go through deeper water than the 6x6. However, the 6x6 is faster.

 

The Insurgent isn't particularly fast, and isn't that good off road, either. On road, though, it'll plow through just about anything without losing control. It'll go around curves with little to no oversteer, and if it does oversteer, it's usually pretty easy to recover.

 

The Merryweather Mesa is nice to look at, and that's about where its usefulness ends. It's far too easy to lose control on the road, does not deal well with ramming into other vehicles, and is incredibly easy to flip over.

 

I don't have any experience with the Guardian. I hear it's fairly decent off road, but realistically, it shouldn't be. The truck it's based on is an on-road hauler, not an off-road plaything.

another drawback to the guardian is its class is "industrial" i believe, so wile it might be ok for freeroam offroading, you cant actually use it in races afaik

dubsta because 6 wheels.

But only four of them actually spin so it's technically a 4x4
