In the mid $30k there are many great vehicles to look at:
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Porsche Cayenne S
Range Rover Sport
VW Touareg V8
Toyota Land Cruisers
Lexus LX (lexus version of the Toyota Land Cruiser
I would test drive each one and go with what fits your life style. They are all great vehicles.
I have a 2004 VW Touareg V8 and its a better tow vehicle then my Dodge Dakota V8 and Chevy Silverado were!
