From Bangkok to Chiang Mai the more direct (highway) routes there's no need for a 4wd. I would recommend getting to Chiang Mai first and rent/hire a car/driver there. The far north is much more hilly with good places to visit by 4wd. Good local rental outlet is but you'll need to ask about a driver. There are quite a lot of freelance drivers with their own jeep/SUV around town.

I agree with Captain :) It's better to go to CM by bus/train/plane and rent a car there. I also can recommend NorthWheels, 3 years ago I rented ISUZU MU7 there, vehicle in good condition, reasonable price. Next month I plan to visit CM again and rent a car in NW again :)
The quickest way you can reach CM is airplane (AirAsia provides non-expensive flights). More cheaper option is a night train. Or if you would like to look at scenery, you can use day bus (and make some stopovers).
