Preppers of GLP! Let's see your BOV! Bug Out Vehicle thread!
I don't want to see what you wish you had, but rather any member here who has or is working on a Bug Out Vehicle is what I am interested in! I know there are guys here building something wicked for a SHTF scenario or maybe it's just for fun for now until that time comes.

My project is actually kinda crazy. I like to play at the local mud parks with my 4X4 truck, but totally tired of rebuilding differentials, transfer cases, axles, etc so since my other hobby is the fuel efficient Geo Metro, I decided to combine the two hobbies into one especially since I have tons of parts for these cars.

That's right. I am building a lightweight, fuel efficient Mudder/BOV capable of driving through the woods, small trail, and even in the mud.........



Here is a test drive video I did..........



This project is in the beginning stages and I still have tons of work to do. Modifications will include......

25X8X12 6 ply ATV tires
4-6 inches of lift
Under-body skid plate
Welded transmission for full time FWD
Roll cage and rear mounted radiator and battery

Let's see what you guys got!

No comupter. Big V8. Worked for Mad Max.

Besides, all I really need to do is be able to drive home to my family and preps after the EMP wipes out all modern computer controlled vehicles anyway.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

One downfall with this vehicle is that it does have an ECU and throttle body injection, but that's fine! I have an entire wiring harness, spare ECU, distributor, ignition, etc stowed away just in case.

I am also living in a very remote area and I love the country life and don't plan on "Bugging Out" unless I have too. There is only one thing that would cause a bug out situation and that is a nuclear power plant about 50 miles from here.

My idea of a perfect government is one guy who sits in a small room at a desk, and the only thing hes allowed to decide is who to nuke. The man is chosen based on some kind of IQ test, and maybe also a physical tournament, like a decathlon. And women are brought to him, maybe ... when he desires them. Ron Swanson

Exactly....too much time on your hands.


Buy a decent old pickup (which has more carry space anyway)....fix it up....call it done.
