Pajero is a good solid starting platform for a 4wd.

If you really want 'best', not 'best cheap' SWB I'd be looking for a Nissan Safari, 4.2 turbo diesel. Very tough & capable vehicle with a huge range of aftermarket options. Often they'll come with really useful factory options like a diff lock & PTO winch. It's getting harder to find a good one though.

At the other end of the SWB size spectrum the Suzuki Jimny is also a seriously good 4wd.

For something in the middle also look at the Toyota Landcruiser KZJ71 (early shape 3.0 turbo diesel Prado)

If it breaks, build it stronger.
If it doesn't break, drive it harder.
