You have some options here...One is a used Jeep Wrangler which I found with mine and some 31' tires would get me anywhere I needed to go..The other option is to look for a older Chev blazer with the solid front axle..Pull the body off and move the engine back to behind the front axle to get some better weight dist and build a rat rod type body on that chassis..If you do that you will lose a lot of weight and be able to run some 33's or 35's which will work better for you and still be able to do what you require..In any case start with a chassis that came from the factory as a 4wd,,

Once you pull the body off of a factory 4wd the chassis rises quite a bit with all that weight off and the stance looks pretty good and you can fit some good size tires to it and you will not need to spend a great deal of cash on lift kits and such..
