The Jeep Wrangler has a storied history and a reputation for ruggedness, and that's drawn some competition over the years.
The 4Runner is more of a conventional SUV, but it hasn't given up its tough truck side in recent years and when properly equipped it could make a softer alternative to the Wrangler Unlimited.
The Nissan Xterra has a rugged look, and serious off-road versions to tough enough for boulder-scrambling, but ultimately it's not as entirely dedicated to the task as the Wrangler.
The FJ Cruiser is the Wrangler's closest rival for pure style; it gets its retro design from the 1960s FJ, yet has modern components from the Toyota 4Runner that are a bit more road-friendly than those of the Wrangler.
