Default What to replace a 2nd gen 4runner with?

I've an old 91 with a rear tire carrier (rare) that is in actually pretty good shape with 147K miles on it. It's been my hunting truck, and I love that it can get into places where side by sides tread but full size trucks don't. What I also love is its short enough to where turning around on a mountain road isn't very hard at all. Also handy to just flop out in the back of, really handy to pick up and go at 3 AM and move to another spot... kinda like a bass boat, only for hunting.

What I hate, is the 3 slow, not exactly the best safety rating, and upkeep is becoming more of an issue. Eventually, was thinking about getting a jeep, but I'm not so sure. Drove a manual transmission jeep before covid hit, and it felt like home to me, but, I know diddly squat about jeeps and I don't want to jump into that in the future without looking at other options.

So what vehicle has similar performance as my 2nd gen 4runner as a hunting truck, can carry 2 additional passengers, and some gear?

Thoughts I had were either a 4X4 truck with extended cab and a short bed. Would still be longer then the 4runner though. Or some 4X4 SUV of some sort or another, but honestly, I don't know enough about SUV's The 4 runner just fell into my lap, i wasn't looking for/at SUV's when I got it.

Get the new Bronco! I’m holding out on buying a new truck until Toyota releases their new diesel or the V6 twin turbo. Should be 2022

The new Bronco is looking pretty good.

Look at a Tacoma hard to beat a crew cab for what you are looking for. They will go about anywhere a 4 runner will.

The only vehicle that can replace a 4Runner is a newer 4Runner (or perhaps a Tacoma). Anything else is unacceptable.

The broncos look awesome, just not enough room for my family. With 3 kids, a wife and a dog I need a full sized pickup with 2 bench seats. So, Tundra it is!!

Ford put ALOT of effort into the big reveal launch yesterday... and then Jeep stepped in and stole their thunder, with their newly announced electric rubicon. LOL
