Default First trail rig

I'm new to rock crawling and, I wanted to build a trail rig I wanted to know if one of these chassis would work.

Nothing extreme just mud, small rocks, LOTS of wood and sticks.

I've narrowed it down to the df-03 F-150 race truck, and the pajero metal top and, I was wondering what is the most capable off road chassis.

The Pajero has a solid rear axle which means you can eventually convert the rear suspension into a four link setup if you'd like. Personally I'd go for that if I had to choose between the two you listed.
