Re: Who in here has an "EMP Proof" Bug Out Vehicle?????
why not just grounding the truck by the bumpers and the axels and such? i have a 1997 f350 diesel. itd be a bitch to make one of those cages and it already surrounded by metal. im also thinking about when a car getting struck by lightning. itll still run but no radio or lights and such. also i was thinking even about a house in a lightning storm and all chimneys have lightning rods and are grounded. what about connecting a pole from like a chain link fence and connecting it to your concrete driveway (theres metal rebar throughout that) so the emp would transfered from the car to the ground.

I do, it's a 1992 Ford F-250 with all mechanical injection, nothing electronic makes it run. It's a 5 speed 7.3 diesel. I can start it, take the battery out and it keeps running. Anyone else have anything like this?

I believe the glow-plug controller is electronic. So your glow plugs will never turn on unless you rig a manual bypass to control the glow plugs. A direct bypass on-off switch should work, I think.

duh any vehicle with spark plugs would mean that it is not emp proof

Wrong.

A car with a points distributor will run just fine. They have to be pre 1972-73 I think... before electronic/CDI ignition.

If you ID the electronic components, then buy extra electronics parts & store them in a Faraday cage, and know how to install them, then you may be alright, assuming you have time to do the work.

But that means buying things like distributor modules & capacitors, alternator voltage regulator modules, sensors, Electronic Control Modules, etc.

1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale...and it's diesel. It gets about 32 mpg and is driven 50 miles everyday (M-F), every week! She is beautiful and no necessary electronics.

We are located close to 2 mining ops so we will have an abundance of DF to filch until we can start our own bio-disel production. :)

1979 Toyota Landcruiser diesel. Engine and running gear are 1950s tech at best.
