3. CUCV

CUCV (Commercial Utility Cargo Vehicle) on the surplus market. They are basically a military diesel pickup or Blazer.

4. Pre-1980’s American-made Trucks and SUVs

Ford, Chevy, Dodge, these older US-made trucks are very common and are great candidates for a low profile bug out vehicles that double as daily drivers. I do not believe that any other vehicle on this list has the volume of accessories and options available to customize it.

Low profile vehicles are not the only modes of transportation you can count on. After the break discover an off-road vehicle that was manufactured right after WWII. It's insane!

    This is not one of them. Most of these Blazers came back after “Desert Storm” with 1,200 to 2,300 miles on them. The fine desert sand kills them. Drive train and engine.

      I would think most of those CUCV’s were too old to have been in the Gulf Wars. They have been selling them as surplus for decades.

    Article mentions a 4×4 Toyota but pic shows a 2wd model. Personally I’d pick an 85 or newer with the fuel injected 22RE engine.
