Pro-4x - 6MT
I bought this truck in late 2015. I've owned exclusively small MT cars in my life, so this is my first 4x4. The X replaced my '05 Mazda 3 that was taking a beating on mountain roads in CO. This truck was much more capable than I imagined, and it earned its nickname on the first 4wd trail I drove - Mosquito Pass, 3 days after purchase. The truck was way more comfortable with the terrain than I was that day. :)

I've learned a ton with this truck since then. It's taken me everywhere I wanted to go in the mountains, including places I never thought to look. With the mountain west getting ever-more populated, it's nice to have confidence to get off the pedestrian forest roads, and into more secluded spots.
